Every year our first grade students learn about folktales – where they come from, how they get passed along, how they bring us closer to people from around the world. We also enjoy listening to the Circle Round podcast. Circle Round is a podcast produced by WBUR that features folktales from many countries and traditions. The narration is fantastic, and they are enjoyed by all!
This fall, I contacted the host of Circle Round – Rebecca Sheir – about possibly having our students Skype with them about the podcast. Rebecca was very gracious in her response, and even though she doesn’t offer Skype visits she offered to create a special message just for Sippican Students. You can listen to the message here.
