StoryArts.org

Today’s website was designed by an award-winning recording artist, Heather Forest, who has recorded seven albums of storytelling. Her intent with this website is to encourage student’s speaking and listening skills while enhancing learning in curriculum areas such as Language Arts, Social Studies, Math, Science, Art, Music, and Drama.

When you get to the site you’ll see a menu. Click on “Story Arts Theatre” to listen to an Aesop’s fable or a tale from China or Russia told by Heather Forest.

Better yet, click on “Story Library” to find an amazing collection of folktales and fables that you can listen to with the whole family online — all for free!

Listening to those stories may inspire your children (or the whole family) to engage in some fun storytelling lessons and activities. There’s a broad selection, developed for classroom use, that can easily be adjusted for learning at home. You can access them all by clicking on “Lesson Plans And Activities” on the main menu.

You can also use the menu to find articles about storytelling, tips, curriculum idea exchanges, and links to other storytelling resources on the Net.

While you don’t have to purchase a thing to access the wealth of free material at the site, you can purchase Heather Forest’s CDs from the Storytelling Store at the site if desired.

Enjoy!
