Theatre Transforms Stories

The Kids English TheatreTeller© takes inspiration from traditional puppet theatre and the ancient Japanese art of storytelling called Kamishibai.

It captures children’s attention, opens their imaginations and turns stories into magical learning experiences.

Kids English TheatreTeller©
encourages you to be the best storyteller you can be. It propels you to take centre stage, be adventurous, creative and perform stories rather than simply reading from a storybook. Stories truly come alive when you act them out and this unique resource allows you to stand up, move around and fully engage with your audience using your eye contact, voice, emotions and body language.

You’ll soon notice that by adopting the Kids English TheatreTeller© young language learners will understand stories better in English, remain focused for longer and learn the new language easier.

STORYCARDS

In each toolkit there are three, simple story sets that aim to free you from boring book readings and kick start your storytelling skills.

Each story set contains 10 cards. Scripts can be found on the reverse side of each story card and used as prompts by the storyteller. Stories are based on well-known tales and adapted to suit young language learners. They are short, simple and use clear illustrations to support children’s comprehension.

Each story card set is numbered and has coloured borders to help you organise and sequence stories quickly at the beginning of sessions.

Create a theatrical adventure. Start by placing a set of 10 story cards along the tracks at the back of your Kids English TheatreTeller©. As you narrate the story, slowly pull out a card to reveal a new scene for each part of the story and let the fun begin!
