I discovered a new-to-me storytelling website.
Dr. Mike Lockett’s site has a long list of stories, tales, fables and folklore.
Some are very easy to tell stories and I picked one to tell this week at school.
The Cat, The Rooster and the Young Mouse is an Aesop fable with
the moral ‘Never judge anyone by their looks”.
I decided I wanted a visual so found pictures of each of the animals and cut the cat and the rooster into parts, like a puzzle, to place on the board as I told the story. You'll see how I used them in the following video.
When I first found the site I was thrilled and instantly ordered two of his CDs. Now to find the time to listen to them. Hope you can find time to check out his site and learn a story or two.
