Stories, Time and Again
A Program Guide for Schools and LibrariesBook
Lively and imaginative book-based programs make it easy to engage young learners, while building their literacy and reading skills, and their love of books and reading.
Your library or classroom will sizzle with excitement when you present these creative, book-based programs--and you just may have as much fun as the kids. Each of the ten chapters focuses on a popular theme or study area--Tropical Rainforests, Animals Down Under, In the Know (manners), and more--offering an annotated list of selected picture books and chapters books, and two complete programs with step-by-step instructions, materials lists, and all the reproducible patterns, scripts, and stories you'll need. Through reading, storytelling, puzzles, creative dramatics, writing exercises, arts and crafts, and more, you can engage young learners, while building their literacy and reading skills, and their love of books and reading. Children will delight in learning about amazing rainforest animals, performing a skit based on myths from ancient Egypt, writing their own fantasy stories, and holding a mouth-watering Medieval banquet. Designed for public and school libraries, these programs also fit beautifully into classroom studies. Grades K-6.
