Teachers shared the following insights about their experience during the in-class mentor model residencies:





My “aha!” moment was when the facilitator had a big smile on her face and wiggled her body to the words, having great fun. Then it hit me- always have fun. Keep it simple, it’s okay to laugh at yourself.


The children encouraged each other to participate during the


storytelling. They listened to each other’s ideas. The class seemed very comfortable in helping to tell the story.


The children became storytellers. A lot of them were able to retell the stories they heard using facial gestures, movements and voice changes. They are very attentive during the storytelling; it captures their attention. They feel like they are part of the story. They really enjoy it.


It is very evident that the children acquired an enhancement to their speaking and listening skills. This is shown by their vivid and insightful responses and enthusiastic involvement. The descriptive language and new vocabulary provides the children with the tools to grow.
