Story S-t-r-e-t-c-h-e-r-s: Curriculum Activities to Expand Children’s Favorite Books

Thursday, November 12, 2015 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm EST

Presented by Dr. Shirley Raines, Speaker, Consultant and Trainer, Author
Sponsored by Kaplan Early Learning Company


Children love a good story. They often applaud and giggle at happy stories, sniffle at sad ones, and shout, “Read it, again!” whenever they have been delighted, intrigued or charmed by a story. Knowing young children’s love of good stories, it’s important to extend that enthusiasm and to better connect children’s books and teaching ideas with other areas of the curriculum. Story S-t-r-e-t-c-h-e-r-s is a literature-based approach to planning circle time, center, and activities, organized around themes often found in the early childhood curriculum. In this webinar, teachers learned how to plan the curriculum using children’s literature as an organizer.

Join the Classroom Management for Early Learning community to participate in online discussions with peers, for invitations to upcoming webinars, to view past webinar recordings, to take a quiz and receive a CE certificate for a past webinar, and for access to more resources.
