What People Are Saying
Excellent! The story teller was authentic and had a cultural connection to the story which made it even better! The story also taught morals and values and the story teller engaged the children in such a fun and orderly manner. I will definitely be looking for her stories again!
The story was interesting and one I was not familiar with. The instructor did a lot to make the class interactive. She had the kids repeat after her, she added responses to the story, she added movements and visuals. I would recommend the class for kids who love story time or love learning new stories.
I was able to see the first part of the class, and it looked so beautiful. Here is my son's review: "when I was in the first part f the class I didn't know what the story was but after that the teacher was very very very nice and in the story she always invited us to participate. This class in particular was very very very very very very very very very cool."
