Story Knifing Sampler

Here's a five minute video clip of the story knifing session I had last October 28, 2008 with seven sections of Nursery boys. The story, Anansi and His Seven Sons, was told while drawing images to form one whole image in the end. The story knifing technique originated from long ago, when tellers would draw or carve images on cave walls, sand, leaves and even barks of trees while telling stories to the tribe.

What a fantastic story. I love your animated expressions and I can hear the children responding so enthusiastically to the story. I loved it! Where did you learn the story? I have not heard this draw-n-tell version. Very clever! Kudos!
