JoJo Gnome’s ‘Extra Special’ Christmas Cracker Story Workshop  (£38.99) *.

(*terms and conditions)

There are 3 elements included in this literacy packed story workshop.

  1. ‘JoJo Gnome’s Christmas Cracker Story Workshop’ Video (19 mins)

Brought to you ‘literally’ from my garden shed studio in Scotland this is a fun story packed workshop. I have tried to create a workshop that is as interactive as possible with opportunities for children to get involved.  The workshop is based around literacy and storytelling.

  • Guessing games based around Christmas gifts.
  • Jo shares the story ‘JoJo Gnome and the Presents’ a seasonal tale with lots of rhyming and participation supported by very colourful pictures.
  • The poem “JoJo Gnome’s Christmas Tree” adds some rhyming fun to the mix.
  • Help JoJo search for the mice hidden in pictures.
  • There are also some musical guessing games and the opportunity to join in and do a bit of dancing with some colourful animated characters.
  1. Enjoy ‘JoJo Gnome’s Christmas Extra’ Video (14 mins)
  • This special seasonal film has a ‘story starter’. This is where Jo starts off a story and your children finish it either orally, by writing it down or by drawing a picture. It is an ideal seasonal literacy exercise for the class.
  • There is also the chance to see how Jo draws JoJo Gnome digitally on the iPad. A perfect draw along exercise for the whole class to take part in.
  • Then enjoy the poem “The Christmas Cats”.
  • Finish off by dancing with some friendly snowmen. It’s an action packed offering.
