Griots Corner in May

Griot’s Corner is a program tailored for K –through 3rd Grade students that uses storytellers and children activities to highlight freedom, acceptance, multiculturalism and citizenship. The “Griot” (ɡrēˈō,ˈɡrēō) is a West African storyteller, historian and/or musician. The griot’s role was to preserve the genealogies and oral traditions of the respective tribe. Griot’s Corner uses the spirit of storytelling to promote literacy and to help young students build strong character traits. This series is especially designed to engage young learners with interactive activities that include reading, creative dramatics, art and music.
