“All that we are is story…We can change the world, one story at a time.” – Richard Wagamese (Native Author and Storyteller).
In a world were we are constantly rushed, storytelling is almost a lost art. In today’s electronic age children are losing their creative thinking and their ability of creating images in their mind. However, storytelling is one of the traditional ways to teach our children lessons about life. Through storytelling children develop listening skills, patience, problem solving, creative thinking, and many more skills used in their early years development. Story Baskets are created to expose children to various ways of learning and are a hands-on approach to education.
Story Baskets are meant to promote language development, develop problem-solving skills, develop creative thinking, develop imagination, and improve public speech.
Throughout this workshop you can expect to learn:
How to create a story with loose pieces
How to use a story basket
Make and Take – The Flower that Smiled.
“What if we all did something nice for each other. What would happen then? Can a little butterfly be successful in his attempt to see a flower bloom? ” Bring your creativity and you smiles and let’s create a story together!
Suitable for all early learning professionals and caregivers.

Biography- My name is Oana Nistor. I am an Early Childhood Educator, Montessori teacher and storyteller. I’ve been working in the ECE field for over 19 years. I worked most of my ECE career in Langley. I presently manage a childcare centre in Maple Ridge and teach the Early Childhood Education program at Ridge Meadows College also in Maple Ridge.
