The Story Machine Program

Table Rock Elementary School

Table Rock Elementary School

Our Story Machine Program is a whole-school, K-5 literacy program. We provide 3-week long literacy instruction workshops taught by literacy specialists with expertise in guiding students to hone their technical writing skills while letting their imagination flourish.  Stories Alive! publishes all complete, original student work (writing & illustrations) in a book made available in their school and local public library.  We also create a live show of original student work, developed and performed by professional actors and perform in the school day for the entire student body. Email info@stories-alive.org for more information.  

Check out the amazing student writing, developed into Story Machine Program performances!

Elsa is so excited to do Stories Alive again and publish a book on her own, plus now her cousin wants to try Stories Alive. Thank you for all the support and encourage you give!
