This workshop is an opportunity to explore ways to work with rhymes and storytelling in our multicultural communities.

Click HERE to register.

It allows participants to:

  • address ways to facilitate parents sharing childhood rhymes and stories
  • find ways to work with many languages and cultures in our groups
  • draw from these experiences to deepen the practice of storytelling with families
  • have access to new stories and rhymes to use
  • find ways to invite and include all participants and their stories
  • explore oral material from your own background to use in your program

Participants will receive articles and ideas on the importance of the Mother Tongue and the use of storytelling in connecting cultures.

The cost includes a copy of Bounce Me, Tickle Me, Hug Me; Lap Rhymes and Play Rhymes from Around the World. Thirty rhymes, each in its original language with a lively English adaptation.

This is a meaningful and enjoyable workshop experience with many applications to take back to invigorate your own programs. It is for those already running a Parent-Child Mother Goose Program. I hope you can join us with your stories, or let others know of the opportunity.

Facilitator: Ruth Danziger
