Florez, Karla Tamarindo Multicultural- Other,
Music,
Performing Arts- Storytelling
Tamarindo is a children's book adapted to be performed as a story telling and dance form. It shows how boys and girls from El Canal del Dique region in the Carribean coast of Colombia love to paint their bodies with black paint as a remembrance of the period in slavery and the freedom from it. A special characteristic in this story is the use of facial gestures. I retell the story by telling of a boy whom is loved throughout the town and enjoy dancing in despite of living in reduced circumstances. Values like rejoice, love and courage are shown in this story while dancing and keeping the contagious rhythm of Danza negra.

!, Spook Handy Passing Along the Folk Music Tradition History,
Music,
Performing Arts- Other
For generations children grew up singing with the whole family, at large gatherings, at school or in their churches. Before the advent of radio, TV and the internet this was the primary form of entertainment. Today, however, many people are worried that this centuries-old tradition is being deleted from the hard drive of the modern human experience. Along with that, society is losing one of the most powerful tools for building strong families and strong communities. This program is simple. Let’s make sure our kids know some of the treasures of American Folk Music. Singing old favorites like This Land is Your Land, If I had a Hammer, I’ve been Working on the Railroad, She'll be coming Around the Mountain and maybe some newer songs. If the children don’t already know a song we’ll take the time to teach them. Parents are encouraged to sit with their children and help them learn the songs. An excellent program for Libraries, Arts Centers, Churches, Schools and other meeting places. Pete Seeger covers some of Spook's songs and the two perform together several times per year.

Zawaski, Gloria How to open the door to your imagination Literature- Creative Writing,
Literature- Authors,
Performing Arts- Storytelling
Middletown author Gloria Smith Zawaski has written The Undercover Kids’ Holland Adventure series. The program she introduces to students, with its creative online interactive component and accompanying short story contest, makes this a perfect addition to school programs. Gloria and her characters (as puppets), Katie, Jake and their dog Cooper are available to visit schools. The title of her presentation is “How to open the door to your imagination.” Gloria’s 40-minute presentation is lively, giving the students the opportunity to think about what their Undercover Kids’ Adventure will be all about. The program has been developed for grades 4 through 6. And the books are available for sale at your school and the author will do a book signing. It works great because the program is based on the New York State curriculum guidelines. There is a 40-page Teacher Resource Guide available for download. It is great for cross curriculum programming. According to Gloria, “Children's lives are often too programmed. The Undercover Kids have a chance to lead authentic lives...learn from their own adventures...make their own decisions.”
