October was a BIG month for me!
As well as doing my October Half Term Holiday Library Storytimes in Kensington and Chelsea, I was also invited by the Polka Children's Theatre to do my first Workshops in South London!
I had a double booking! Two Workshops in one day! The first Workshop took place in a room in Colliers Wood Library. Many families had signed up to my Workshop in advance but I was thrilled to see quite a few had turned up from listings found online! This is really awesome because it means word of my Storytime is spreading and reaching new eyes and ears! I was delighted to see some parents who are in the same Facebook networking groups as me, also joined my Workshops!
Teaching the children about the circus and creating artwork with them at the Polka Workshop
Polka Theatre Workshop in progress - Drama, singing and dancing... I get everyone involved!
My audiobook Billy Joins the Circus was a hit! The children loved listening to the story and doing all the related activities! In the end, I had everyone up on their feet, parents included, all joining in with singing and dancing along to Billy's song! It was absolutely brilliant! I left feeling so inspired and happy!
I jumped on the Northern Line for a few stops and headed to my next Storytime at Morden Library.
My afternoon session was just as much fun as my morning one and once again, everyone got involved in all of the activities. I was particularly pleased to see that one family, who had been at my morning session, had returned to take part in my Storytime for the second time that day! How awesome is that! Luckily with my Music Audio Stories, there's a lot of detail in the stories and sounds for children to listen out for and quite often, they discover new things each time they listen.
Visit my Kids Corner to see all of the wonderful drawings I collected from both Workshops.
I am extremely pleased to announce I will be doing another one next month! Full details can be found here Polka Theatre Presents: Storytime Christmas Magic.
Thank you Fran Chabrel and the Polka Theatre, I really enjoyed doing the workshops with you! I can't wait for 'Christmas Magic'!
