According to recent research, the best way to make new connections in a child's brain is by building on something already known. A child who loves a book will listen to it repeatedly, maintaining interest. Using a selected book in a number of consecutive preschool storytimes, but presenting it differently each time, can help children learn new skill sets. This book presents a new approach to storytime, one that employs repetition with variety to create an experience which helps children connect and engage with the story on a higher level. Diamant-Cohen, recently awarded the 2013 ASCLA Leadership and Professional Achievement Award, and Hetrick offer a year's worth of activities specifically designed to address multiple intelligences through a repetition-based process. Incorporating recent theories on developmental learning, this book

  • Includes scripts for 8 different books, with enough activities to repeat each one for six weeks, along with lists of optional alternative books
  • Planning aids such as outlines of storytime sessions, a fill-in-the-blanks planning sheet, questions for evaluation, and tips for enhanced storytimes using props and crafts
  • Detailed but straightforward explanations of theory and research that will help readers communicate effectively with parents, caregivers, and other stakeholders
From setup to execution, here s everything you need to create and implement a successful, elevated storytime.
