Hi Thabile My name is Sophie from Vaal. First, you need to believe that you are the best and do it with all your heart not forced to do it. Secondly, prepare yourself. Reading the story again and again will help you get the characters or sentences right. Thirdly, that age group is nice to work with. You can talk about colours, shapes, animals and people, plants they see in that book. Ask questions around that book uzobona they will come up with new stories. Let them write their own stories and draw pictures related to their story. I hope and trust my tips will help you and sharing the same sentiments with you that one day I'm going to be a great storyteller like Mam Gcina Mhlophe or let me say We're going to be great storytellers. Let's strive to make a difference lapho sikhona, God will put uh where He wants us. Stay blessed Sesi.
Hi Thabile! It is good that you want to improve your storytelling skills! My advice as a storyteller, you can start small. Take a short story that appeala to your children! Exciting, interesting and with potential to engage children through song or rhyme. Read it, practise telling, maybe to your friend or children at home before you sit with a bigger group. If they see it in you, they will engage! Do it with them, not for them!! It will be fun and you will grow to become a great storyteller, more especially if you are also passionate about it and working with children. Good luck! From Nompucuko@nalibali
