Transformations: Stories to Tell in the Classroom

Transformations: Stories to Tell in the Classroom

Help them to be brilliant, tell them a story!


These six stories are the perfect companions to the topics, SEAL work and Literacy Units for teachers and children in the primary classroom. They are to be read aloud but can be enjoyed in solitude. These include myths and legends, based around the subject of transformations dealing with issues and dilemmas to stimulate speaking, listening, responding and writing. The stories are accompanied by a commentary and exercises for use as teaching tools.


‘Transformations’ is the perfect title for this excellent book as it has the capacity to transform classroom practice and bedtime stories and is an absolute essential for all classroom practitioners and parents who wish to inspire and excite children through the power of oral storytelling. Phil McDermott is a renowned storyteller himself and Transformations reflects his own unique voice which is able to transport us to different times, places and situations. With its powerful stories, commentaries and ideas for follow up activities and discussions, this book goes far beyond the requirements of the curriculum and will enable teachers and parents to set fire to children’s imaginations through the power of language. ~ Virginia Bower, Senior Lecturer at Canterbury Christ Church University
