Abstract

This paper unpacks auto-ethnographically the lived experience of the teacher researcher's application of early childhood theoretical, and pedagogical constructs to the telling of Bible stories through the lenses of attention to detail, context, and experience, together with four metaphors for children's lives, theories of childhood development, and their associated pedagogical strategies. It reflects upon and teases out the storyteller's metacognition before, during, and after storytelling and pays attention to the reciprocity of the relationship between the storyteller and listener as a catalyst for scaffolding children's spiritual awareness, biblical knowledge, faith, and values formation.
