Kindergarten & lower primary teachers


Explore and select stories for children. Discuss the elements that make them appropriate and the reasons that support our choice.

Read, tell & perform stories with children to help them develop language awareness and appropriation.

Think, plan and carry out a variety of related activities to work with stories in the classroom (games, interactive reading, performing, arts & crafts) that allow children to enjoy stories, learn English and develop their creative and critical thinking skills.


The workshop explores the power of stories to help children develop their imagination, creativity, language awareness and appropriation. We will think and plan activities that provide space for exploration and discovery: interactive and collaborative games, performative tasks and artistic proposals. In our session, we will work with contemporary children’s books and engage in tasks that will put us to work actively and collaboratively.

The children’s book selection for our session includes authors such as Viviane Schwarz, Anthony Browne, Jon Klassen, Richard Byrne, Mo Willems, Kevin Henkes, Giles Andrade & Nick Sharratt, Julia Donaldson, Ed Emberley, Michael Rosen, among others.


Workshop: Dialogical and interactive approach in which participants will discuss and apply concepts, brainstorm creative teaching ideas, develop supporting teaching materials and carry out the tasks in groups.
