What to expect when Nadia comes to visit ...
A highly interactive, joy-filled 30 - 45 minute session featuring: music, movement, storytelling, language and literacy extension, and guided story play embedded with Abecedarian principles.
Nadia arrives with her best friend 'Twinkle', an adorable toy mouse. But before she can begin her author session, Twinkle needs to settle down for his morning nap. He usually loves a book before sleep and today's book is all about rocket ships!
However ... when the book is finished, Twinkle just won't go to bed. He'd rather play a game instead!
Nadia knows just what to do! She takes a look inside pocket number 1 of her magic 'nap' sack - a whimsical sack full of fun ideas that sometimes help Twinkle get to sleep. Inside the pocket she discovers ... a rocket ship! WHOOSH!!!
Today, the pockets of the magic nap sack are full of outer space inspired props, and when Nadia and Twinkle discover jetpacks that can fly them to the moon, they blast off on an imaginary adventure with their newfound friends - discovering moon cheese, banango trees and other wondrous delights!
When Twinkle finally gets to sleep, Nadia artfully engages her new friends in an inspired and interactive exploration of narrative themes, story devices and creative ideas before reading her book 'Twinkle Just Won't Go To Bed' to finish the session.
"Nadia's sessions with our students were amazing!
She set clear expectations and off she went on a marvellous adventure of storytelling and humour.
I have never seen our students as engaged and happy as they were during Nadia's visit.
We would definitely recommend her to other schools and we will be getting her back here at our school in the future!"
