Library Storytelling Morning activity for June 2014

Come to the “tellebration” with us! Monthly Saturday morning meetings from October to June where kids can enjoy selected stories in English, this time with Trisha and Alito as storytellers.

Recommended for children between the ages of 4 – 8.Forty children per session and two adults per child maximum. 45 minutes approx.

Now in collaboration with American Space Madrid it’s a free activity!

Library members gain privileged access, with the classic optional 2 x 1 registration (this means each child with a library card can bring one guest). They will need to send an e-mail to biblioteca@iie.es confirming their participation in the activity any time from the first day of the month and up to the week before the Storytelling morning. On the day of the session they will need to show their library card.

Non- members who want to participate also have to send an e-mail to biblioteca@iie.es as registration that will be confirmed once we know the spaces left by the library members.

If at some point the number of members registered reaches the maximum capacity limit we will announce that tickets are sold out trough the IIE Facebook page.

June 2014 storytelling around the book:

Min Lo

“Ming Lo Moves the Mountain” by Arnold Lobel

Saturday, June 14th 2014

At 11 a.m. – English version (for advanced level learners)

At 12:30 p.m –English version with some Spanish to help understand. (For Intermediate English level learners)

Ming Lo’s wife is angry. The couple live beside a big mountain which causes them no end of trouble. “Husband,” says Ming Lo’s wife, “you must move the mountain so that we may enjoy our house in peace.” But how can a man as small as Ming Lo move something as large as a mountain? Maybe the village wise man can help.

(La mujer de Ming Lo está enfadada. La pareja vive debajo de una gran montaña lo que les causa muchos problemas. Un día ella le dijo “Esposo, debes mover la montaña para que podamos disfrutar de nuestra casa en paz”, pero ¿cómo puede un hombre pequeño con Ming Lo mover algo tan grande como una montaña? Quizás el sabio del pueblo pueda ayudarle.)
