Giant and the Squirrel
Chain stories are as popular with adult audiences as with children.
This delightful Swedish tale (ATU 2028) is from my translation of Per Gustavsson’s The Magic Pisspot: Swedish folk tales.
Hallo, Schüler:innen in Magdeburg!
Es freut sehr mich, dass Ihr meine Geschichten hört.
Bittet Eure Lehrer:in mir eine Mail zu schreiben.
Ich würde gerne mehr darüber lernen, wie Ihr storytelling im Unterricht verwendet, damit ich mein Angebot noch verbessern kann. Z.B. seid Ihr im Klassenzimmer oder im home-schooling?
