Coming Up! ‘Beyond the Book’ Story Skills for Parents (5 week course, beginning 24 February 2015, Balham Community Centre, 91 Bedford Hill SW12 9HE, 1pm – 2.30pm)
I’m very excited to be offering this course for the first time this February. Storytelling with your child is a wonderful way of creating warmth and special memories. It’s also great for sparking children’s imaginations and literacy. If, like me, you want to be the best storyteller you can for your child, but you would like to gain some new skills and ideas and build your confidence to let your imagination fly, this course is for you. Over five weeks we’ll practice a range of simple techniques, tell stories, listen to stories, share ideas, discuss what types of stories work for different age groups and temperaments and hopefully have a great deal of fun and cake. The course is directed at parents and carers, including grandparents, but children are welcome to come along with you. Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 07547269414 to make a booking. As its the first time I will be offering this course and a bit of an experiment there is no cost, although a contribution to help cover costs is requested.
