Children making stories

My educational philosophy and way of teaching was built around shared storymaking in all of its forms – storyplay, art (drawing, painting collage, making), story writing/dictating, storyacting, music, song, movement dance and drama.  Our storymaking became a ‘thinking-on-your-feet nudging-and-narrating’ process for us all – fluid and challenging – allowing ideas to be explored over a day, weeks, months and even over a year. I learned to have resources and  knowledge, or ways of finding out, at my fingertips. I learned to listen and to interpret underlying meaning.
