Stories

Story Collection

This collection of stories is a combined effort between my mother, Sheila Wee, and myself. We are working to build up a library of original adaptations, many of which we intend to couple with an audio option.

We will be continually building up our story library, as well as develop a resource store to create a content rich site for tellers, teachers, parents and story-lovers.

Do feel free to leave a comment on the site, and share what you found useful, or ideas on different directions tellers can take with each story or idea.

Enjoy!

Julie

How to Use the Resources:

  • You can just browse and read the stories at your leisure
  • You can search for a particular type of story by choosing an option from the moving Tag Cloud on the right hand side of the site.
  • To see a full list of titles and their tags, just click on ‘Story Collection’
  • To listen to audio stories, click ‘audio’ in the tag cloud

Teachers, feel free to use the audio stories for listening comprehension in your classrooms. All we ask is for you to leave a comment under the story you played, sharing your ideas on how you used the story.
