This October, fourth-grade Sachem students throughout the district enjoyed a visit from award-winning author and storyteller Heather Forest, as she incorporated her singing musical mastery into her folktales.
Delivering a range of folktales from across the world, storyteller Heather Forest seamlessly weaved musical instruments into her stories. Incorporating a guitar and xylophone, she periodically called upon students to join in on the music. Grasping the imagination of each listener, Forest’s visual stories painted a picture as she guided students through each tale.
Teachers were provided with copies of Forest’s books to continue the folktale fun in future classes.
