April, 2014

At the Gale Center for History and Culture in South Jordan, Utah, a gathering of Girl Scouts and other guests learned about the history of Mother's Day and they created fantastic original Mother's Day cards. Some of the childreh traced their hand on one panel of the card so their mom's would have a nice memory when they grow up. They could choose from tiny flowers, bows, stickers, and novel gift paper cut outs.

The array of glamorous and thoughtful cards was inspiring!

Girl Scout leader and teacherTammie Ynda commented "The kids loved it!" Candy Ponzurick, a grandparent and Gale Center Museum Coordinator noticed, "The kids were having so much fun." A parent, Natalie Copky commented, "I loved how you made history so interesting for the kids! They loved making the cards too!

Western Regional Oracle Award Recognition

At the National Storytelling Network's Award dinner in San Antonio, Texas on July 9, 2011 Carol received the Western Region Oracle Award for Leadership and Service. She was nominated by the Utah Storytelling Guild and her nomination was one from eight states in the western region. Carol advocated for Storytellers to be acknowledged as "Performing Artists" on a prominent Utah events website: http://www.nowplayingutah.com

To add to the satisfaction, Storytellers can announce their events in the category: Storyteller (as opposed to "other"). Be sure to visit the web site and check out two of Carol's upcoming events on May 31st and July 29th.

 

At the National Storytelling Network Conference in Los Angeles, on July 30, 2010, Carol performed a "Fringe" presentation -- Alakazam! We Have Talent Too!

Storytellers from Missouri, Utah, California, Florida, and Maine were in the audience. When asked what they liked best about this program, here were some of the comments:

"Carol's warmth, gentle humor and affection for the kids she told us about"

"You had the audience the whole time. Your voice can have us feel like we are friends forever--whether or not this is the first time you've seen us."

"imagining how to help special ed students do that sequence"

"...several creative ideas for use in sequencing storytelling -- thank you!"

"how to use storytelling to meet educational objectives-- ...use of the presentation of magic tricks to help children (people) overcome shyness, learn to emote, and have fun!"

Calvin Smith Library...
Splish Splash Splish! What a Fish

On August 10th at the Calvin Smith Library in South Salt Lake, parents and children participated in the "Magic Fish" story-plus-craft event.

Penny Butterfield, a parent from Holladay, Utah wrote, "This was a great event! The story captivated all of my kids (ages 2,4, and 6) and was very entertaining. We all enjoyed it being told instead of read. Making their own magic fish was great and they loved the variety of things to put on their fish. We had a great time."

 

 

On July 18th parents and children at the West Jordan library had this to say about Carol's "Create a Magic Talent Show" workshop..

"...excellent tips for kids to do a Magic Talent show." --Miriam Thahira Hyder, Toastmaster

"...nice job to help youngsters learn how to do a magic show. I thought the handkerchief to rabbit was a big hit!" Al Lampkin, Professional Magician

The Gale Center of History and Culture
Every Tuesday something exciting happens in South Jordan, Utah!

We just celebrated St. Patrick's Day 2011 with a story about Leprechauns and their hiding gold. Carol then demonstrated how to make gold disappear and then reappear again. She made up a magical leprechaun story about the trick and then gave each child the materials to take home. There was a lot of time for practice so the children could fool someone who had not seen "the secret." About 65 parents and children came in response to an inviting article in the South Valley Journal and a "Terrific Tuesday announcement posted at the Gale Center!

!

Hear the story! Learn to do the magic! Take your magic trick home!

 

 

On April 28, 2010, at the Gale Center of History and Culture in South Jordan, a responsive audience enjoyed "Noodleheads, Tricksters, and Tulip Tales."

April Cobb (parent/South Jordan) wrote "It is wonderful to be reminded of classic stories with a twist. I'm so glad to have my children introduced to good old fashion storytelling to show them how fun it can be to step away from the TV and use their imagination. Thank you."

Lucy Crookston (grandparent) wrote, "More-more-more. New stories -- well told --action naturally"

Grant Woolston (grandparent/South Jordan) wrote, "The stories were easily understood by the children. The stories were well told and amusing."

Another person attending complimented the storyteller saying, "Awesome storytelling artist!"

In January school assemblies in the Jordan School District, teachers provided feedback that continues to help to shape and refine these assemblies.

Susan Labrum, a teacher at Heartland Elementary says, "I like the explanations of the different kinds of stories. I also liked how you added detail to an existing story to create more interest. This will help students as they prepare to do their own storytelling."

Lucy McDowell, another Heartland teacher, said she especially liked the fairy tale, Beeping Sleauty.

Bonnie Clark, a teacher at Butterfield Canyon Elementary, commented, "The stories were interesting and diverse. It was great to hear details about the authors, and the countries of origin. The students were quiet and engaged the whole presentation."

Wasatch Elementary School Arts Showcase
December 9, 2009

Among the written feedback comments, these are the ones who gave permission to quote them.

They are pretty representative of the overall feedback. 
"Beeping Sleauty"
had the kids "in stitches" --begging for repeats of the story lines they loved the best.  The Tangled Up Feet and Whose Horse is Whose? were popular "Noodlehead Tales" the students wanted to hear again.

Grace Richards wrote, "I loved the way you did motions."
Kelsey Beck wrote that what she liked best about the stories was, "they were funny."
David Richards said the program was "very entertaining for children and adults.  Each story had a great message."
Morgan Dutson said, "good story!"
Lisa Joss-Moore liked the "Three Piddle Ligs" best
Magaly McMannis wrote, "I loved the way you talk.  It takes you into the story."

 

 

 

At the 5th Annual Farmington Storytelling Festival on January 24th, Carol told Beeping Sleauty and engaged several of the children in imagining that they were among the people in the castle to suddenly were enchanted into a 100-year sleep.

After hearing Carol Esterreicher tell the tale of Beeping Sleauty (Sleeping Beauty told in "spoonerisms") Patti Sadler, a student from Fruit Heights, wrote " I love how you geared it toward the audience and how you involved the children with the 100 years of sleep.  That was fun!"

StoryFest 2006

What a wonderful gathering of like hearts ready to connect with each other by way of story!

The Story:

Carol "brought the house down" at the Saturday night Children's concert with her hilarious delivery of Ladle Rat Rotten Hoof. After the story, children were overheard rehearsing their fascination with the strange sounding word substitutions "wooshclutter.....wooshclutter....whooshclutter."

After hearing "Ladle Rat Rotten Hoof," audience members shared the following:

"I had lots of children there and I loved how you involved them and how much they laughed and enjoyed your story." -- Rene Sheets.

"You certainly are a good example of what you teach!"
--Derle Thorpe, Logan Utah

"Carol, I always enjoy hearing you perform your unusual stories. You have such a unique depth of knowledge when it comes to words and how they fit into the English language. It's poetry!"

--Billie J. Jones, President
Olympus Chapter/Utah Storytelling Guild

 

 

"I love to watch Carol as she plays with words while telling stories. Her listeners hang on her every word as she delights them with stories like Ladle Rat Rotten Hoof."
--Suzanne Hudson, Olympus Chapter of Utah Storytelling Guild

 

"...simply delightful! The clever switches in language were masterful!"
-
-Karla Huntsman, Utah Storytelling Guild

 

"I really liked how funny reversing the letters was and how you had to really engage and think about it. The gestures and actions were great. It was an all around good time for everyone re-experiencing an old favorite!"

--Susie Nilsson, Storyteller

"I loved the play on words. You are phenomenal to carry these mixed up words throughout a whole story. You have the ability to take a well-known story and breathe new life into it. Your stories are delightful and funny. I don't know how you do it.

Carol, I loved the way your story progresses and your pacing based upon the audience feedback. You know how to read your audience."

--Janine Nishiguchi,
Storyteller & former President of
The Utah Storytelling Guild

I wonder about ways to develop new stories. Thanks for all the great ideas. --Derle Thorpe

Derle attended Carol's workshop:

Tale Snapshot.

What I liked best about your Fractured Fairy Tale workshop was "all the different ideas and ways to fracture a story. It gets me thinking."
--Laurie Allen, Secretary, Utah Storytelling Guild

From the Salt Lake Tribune's Close-Up Correspondent.

Carol,

Congratulations on the class! I am so excited for you and I think it’s such a great practice to be spreading around that nothing but good can come from that. Very exciting. I’am still interested in doing a story on NLP, I just haven’t pinpointed the publication for it.

Good Luck! 

-Lynda
