Oral Story Telling an African Tradition

If you attended the in-person workshop on February 10, ‘Storytelling From the Heart of Africa’, this workshop is the same, except with a focus on oral storytelling. We will reflect on how oral storytelling can bring benefits to children’s learning using everyday life experiences and explore how stories from various parts of the world can create a sense of connection, and kindness, without using expensive materials or props.

Living Inquiries:

Well-being and belonging.
Engagement with others, materials, and the world.
Communication and literacies.


Joy in relationships with people, place, materials, and ideas.
Culture and worldviews.
Emotions, thoughts, and views.
Every child is a gift.
Time for engagement.
Culture, family, traditions, and knowledge.
Language and communication.

Suitable for ECE students, intermediate and experienced early care and learning professionals working with children of all ages, from infants/toddlers to school age children, including children with extra support needs.
