Mary Jo sings, plays guitar, invites preschoolers to sing, move, chant, dance, wiggle, help tell the stories with hand- and fingerplays--always keeping them ACTIVE, and has superb crowd management skills, so things stay pleasantly–well, managed. The kids find MJ very funny, and she is ever so gentle with their tender hearts. We do a dress up play, too, and sometimes dance like alligators. Accent is on BIG participation by the group. You’ll be amazed, though, at how long the little ones simply sit still for a storyteller as seasoned as this. MJ is an expert at keeping their attention, and refreshing it with age-appropriate stories to engage all their senses for a loving literacy learning experience. From tales of brave bunnies to talking fingers, it's fun, fun, fun. Teachers and parents have a ball, too, and gain valuable techniques as they participate. Don’t wait. This is an expert, ready for your kids and professional development workshops for their tired teachers young and experienced.

Maichack, Mary Jo (and Gregory) How to Tell a Story Workshop Literature- Other,
Performing Arts- Storytelling,
Performing Arts- Theater
Mary Jo, a vet of some 3-4,000 storytelling shows & workshops in libraries, schools, on hay bales and lovely national stages in regional storytelling festivals, (more than 30 years' full-time professional expertise) engages family audiences so that they learn how to tell short folktales, easily and with fun and confidence. Mary Jo has learned to tell and teach simultaneously, so participants are immediately actively telling tales, for example, "Why Thumb Lives Apart from the Quarreling Fingers," which uses the fingers and thumb as characters. It's funny and memorable, and repeats so kids can tell it on their own almost immediately. Because there is both gesture and spoken word, the gestures become cues--very empowering! Emphasis is on relaxed, positive-only fun and funny tales to "take home." Kids to adults can enjoy this.

The show's message is one of racial equality, understanding of each other's cultures and religions and a strong desire for togetherness in a world which seeks to divide rather than bring together.
