JONATHAN KRUK ENTERTAINS, EDUCATES, AND ENCHANTS
TA highly engaging performance & workshop program for children Pre-K to grade 2.
Let your master storyteller take young children by the hand and guide them to become better listeners. “Finger Fables” engages even the “squiggliest squirmer” to turn their fingers, faces and voices into story characters. They not only follow the fable but learn to listen, retell and reenact. Studies show children who learn to tell and retell stories become stronger readers writers and problem-solvers.
Drawing fables from Aesop to Anansi, and authors like Margaret Wise Brown, and Leo Leoni, this program enchants children from Pre-K to second grade.
The best way is to offer an assembly performance, followed by four 30-40 minute story-making workshops. Usually, four short interactive fables are performed.
Alternatively, schedule a day of five in class visits. Each 45-minute visit offers, two or three performed fables the children will retell, and reenact. We’ll launch a pre-writing/drawing activity on the main idea or sequence.
