Schedule your storytelling performances now!

The Tale Tellers are available through the end of May. 

 The Tale Tellers, a group of experienced storytellers, continue to share their love of this performing art for grades K-5. Now in their nineteenth year, these volunteers provide storytelling for students in El Paso County as a FREE community resource.

  • The stories Tale Tellers perform support standards-based education and subjects appropriate for grades K-5. Their performances include patterns of sound, plot development, word choice, background knowledge, paraphrasing and story elements.
  • Students learn listening, social and conflict resolution skills, values and vocabulary.
  • Classic and contemporary fables and folklore, stories of foreign countries and cultures, holiday stories and more.
  • Colorado History is offered on Wednesdays and Fridays for Grades 3-5.
  • Each performance is 30 minutes, with a 30-student maximum, for up to 3 sessions per day
  • The Tale Tellers are scheduled by D11 Engage.
