Registration is not required. More information and access information is available online.

The link to this program will be available at 2:30 p.m. on December 2, 2010.

It’s Monday morning, AGAIN! Time to get your storytime ready for the week. Ho Hum. You could always recycle a previous storytime or… you can jazz up your repertoire with new fingerplays, flannels, puppets and book suggestions.

Try something new!

  • Learn how to use Readers Theater and bring your story alive with the help of your audience. A dramatic read aloud of a story is great for children’s communication skills, collaboration skills and learning to use expression.

Make better connections with storytime parents!

  • Set up a “Stay and Play” after your storytime. Learn how to plan developmentally appropriate activities and share early literacy information with your participants Does this mean parents? If so, I think it would be clearer if it said parents, since the participants are really the children. It’s reference, but you’re just not sitting behind a desk.

Save time!

  • We sure don’t have enough. Let this webinar help you refresh your love of storytime and provide you with new material. You won’t have to spend time planning, just get out there and try out these fresh new ideas!

At the end of this one-hour webinar, attendees will learn about:

  • New examples of traditional storytime elements; including puppets, fingerplays, books, flannels and music
  • Readers theater; bring your stories to life with the help of your audience
  • “Parent Patter” – a technique your storytime parents will appreciate
  • “Stay and Play” – an innovative approach on how to extend your storytime fun

This webinar will be of interest to storytime presenters and others engaging in preparing and presenting programs for children.
