When a story comes to the end -- it does not have to be the end of the story. Instead, teachers can continue the learning with activities and experiences to promote conversation about that story. Story Play encourages even the most inexperienced teacher, librarian, child care professional, or family member to become a storyteller with ideas for expanding stories into meaningful learning experiences. With stories, poems, songs, chants, and fingerplays, as well as ideas for working with puppets and props, Story Play brings all the fun of storytelling into the classroom in new ways. These easy-to-follow ideas focus on literacy skills and are perfect for engaged, active learning. 224 pages. Paperback.
