Oral storytelling apron
Here is my oral storytelling apron! It is actually an egg collectiing apron but I find the little pockets perfect for storring small items that I include in a story. Using items is a great way to start as children will look at it (as you do) which helps if you are shy.

Indigenous stories told orally
Many indigenous cultures have passed on stories and I love to honour this tradition and do the same. Sometimes when staring out a props might be helpful for you and the children. With practice this will not be needed as you gain confidence.

Props to support you & the child in oral storytelling
Sometimes we need a little support when staring out and a prop can help. Here the fable The Lion and the Mouse is being shared. This is a BONUS in my mini-course and as you can see has been tested by little hands.

Oral storytelling apron
I like to use an apron with differnt items in it to support me and the children when telling oral stories. I use an egg gathering apron and add small but meaningful items. This is a great way when starting out as an oral storyteller and I share others in my mini-course.

The art of oral storytelling
Oral storyelling is invauable for a teacher to share and for children to hear. In this mini-course I have 5 different ways to tell an oral story and teach you how to share them in your early childhood setting. I also share how to adapt and create your own oral stories.
