The Storytellers: Term 1: Toad's Tales
A Readers Theatre Program with a unique learning
This term's storytelling program will take inspiration from Kenneth Grahame's classic book, "The Wind in the Willows". The program will consist of three groups, each having three members, who will narrate three independent chapters about Mr. Toad. This is an excellent introduction to Grahame's beloved book. In addition to being narrators, students will also voice Ratty, Mole, and Mr. Toad in the three complete chapters from the classic tale: The Open Road, Mr. Toad, and Toad's Adventure. The storytelling experience will be enhanced by teaching students how to create sound effects. Each group will be responsible for producing sound effects for the other groups. This will add an extra layer of excitement to the storytelling experience and allow participants to bring the stories to life. At the end of the term, the stories will be recorded and available on The Drama Merchant website through a Pay What You Think Scheme for a limited time. Later on, the stories will be heard for free on The Radioplay Hour, providing a chance for individuals to gain confidence and share their newfound storytelling skills with a broader audience.
