Once upon a Frog—Make and Take with Oana Nistor



“Once upon a frog…” – come and join me on a journey through the seasons and learn about the beauty of a layered story.

“All that we are is story…We can change the world, one story at a time.” – Richard Wagamese (Native Author and Storyteller).

In a world where we are constantly rushed, storytelling is almost a lost art. In today’s electronic age children are losing their creative thinking and their ability of creating images in their mind. However, storytelling is one of the traditional ways to teach our  children lessons about life. Through storytelling children develop listening skills, patience, problem solving, creative thinking, and many more skills used in their early years development. Story Baskets are created to expose children to various ways of learning and are a hands-on approach to education.

Story Baskets are meant to promote language development, develop problem-solving skills, develop creative thinking, develop imagination, and improve public speech.

Throughout this workshop you can expect to learn:

  • How to create a story with loose pieces
  • How to create and use a story basket
  • How to create a story

My name is Oana Nistor. I am an Early Childhood Educator, Montessori teacher and  storyteller. I’ve been working in the ECE field for over 20 years. I worked most of my ECE career in Langley. I presently teach the Early Childhood Education program at Ridge Meadows College also in Maple Ridge. I am passionate about children and I am passionate about stories and their teaching power. I am fascinated by the power of stories and more importantly the benefits and the lessons we can learn from stories.

It is a pleasure and a privilege being able to present this workshop to you and introduce old ideas in a somewhat innovative and creative format. Bring your creativity and your smiles and let’s create a story together!
