Kid Friendly - A web workshop on Story Reading Skills for Parents/Adults
Dear Story Reader
Welcome to this web workshop. Here, we'll be learning how we can engage children to actively listen to the stories we read out to them.
In these COVID times, the amount of time our kids spend in front of a screen is only increasing. How can we make them spend more time with stories?
So come along and let's pick up some skills to make the stories we read come alive. Can we tell stories in an IMMERSIVE way? Can we make them play based?
From Character voices to creating the mood of the storybook, from asking interactive questions to engaging them in tasks, we'll understand how we can read to them in a way that is joyful, engaging and fun.
No prior storytelling experience is required. We will choose books that are contemporary and Inclusive. We will read from open source websites so that the book will also be available with you post your session.
Register to receive 4 video tutorials followed by one live online session, where participants will read together. Five participants per batch for focused feedback and training
