    Storytelling Club!

    The Storytelling Club is open to 3rd, 4th and 5th graders.  The purpose of the club is to have fun learning how to tell stories and to perform in public.  We will share stories for Night with the Specialists which is scheduled for Thursday, February 22nd. We will tell stories at Barnes & Noble, Tuesday, December 12th.


    We will meet most Wednesday mornings before school 8:15-8:45 during 2nd and 3rd quarter.  We will get together to learn stories and practice telling them. We also learn to use different emotions and tones of voices and body language to help tell our stories.   We will start meet November 1st   through February 28th.
