Storytelling is such a powerful tool for teachers not only for language learning, but also as a way of connecting to students and spreading warmth and understanding. Right now, this is a perfect tool for our current situation as online teachers. In this webinar, we’re going to look at a number of stories and picture books that are suitable for the young learner. Teachers will receive tips and simple strategies on how to work with beautiful images, how to use costumes, props and sound effects using simple things available at home. As we gain confidence as storytellers, we can also spread beautiful messages of love and hope in these challenging times.
