Carolyn Sullivan has been involved in Early Childhood Education and Care for the last 31 years in child care and preschool programs; including work with children who have special needs, with preschool children and their mothers learning English, and as a Supported Child Development consultant. Early in those years her love of stories found an outlet in storytelling and a childhood passion for puppets added to the richness of stories shared with children. She has enjoyed a number of years as a volunteer and performer with the Vancouver Society of Storytelling. Carolyn tells stories from folktale traditions and from her own life.
Stories feed our imaginations, soothe our souls, and connect us to the past, the present and the lives of others. We make sense of the world and ourselves through the stories we hear and tell to others and ourselves.
Join Carolyn in exploring the rich potential of folk tales and personal stories in story making with children. Different styles and mediums will be explored and during each session at least one prop to support storytelling will be created as a ‘take home’ resource. During the second session the use of props to support understanding and language learning will be explored using these props to pull individual songs/rhymes/chants or short stories into story making for the emergent language learner.
