KIDS AS STORYTELLERS - Summer program at Monona Public Library

For the thespians among you...this looks like an incredibly FUN event that is hosted by the Monona Public Library (one of my favorite libraries, by the way!)

From their website:

Kids As Storytellers (KAST)
Monona Public Library

Mondays, June 15 to August 3 from 4 to 5p.m.
For kids ages 8 and older.

Storytelling improves language skills and helps children become better writers. Children who engage in the activity learn about history and culture, develop emotionally and have better self-esteem. Storytelling stimulates imagination to the nth degree. Storytelling creates a love of story that translates into a potentially life-long love of books the same way read-aloud does. Registration required. Registration required, begins May 1.

Performances will be held on:

  • Tuesday, July 7, 1pm & July 28 10:30am. at the Talent Show. KAST members who want to perform on July 7 must attend practices 6/15 - 7/6.
  • Tuesday, July 28 at the "Creation Stations" Family Fun event. KAST who want to perform on July 28 must attend most practices from 6/15 to 7/27.
  • Wednesday, Aug. 5, 1pm and/or 6:15pm. at the beginning of the "Catch the Last Act" Family Fun Charades & Sundaes event. KAST who want to perform on August 5 must attend most practices from 6/15 to 8/3 and performers will be picked based on storytelling skills developed over the summer.
