Robert Graves fourth-graders completed the first “Stories of Three” Storytelling Residency in the Kingston City School District. Students learned from Storytelling Coach, Karen Pillsworth, for one hour a day, for one week. “They chose their stories, made props, practiced, and told their stories in front of their classmates. And just like that…they became storytellers! I’m so proud of all of them,” she said.
Storytelling is one way to be creative, enhance presentation skills, and build confidence in the classroom. Edson and Crosby Elementary will be the next schools to host the residency and produce our future storytellers. Mrs. Pillsworth looks forward to teaching more of our students in the district very soon!
