Tuesday 19th July 4.30PM-6.00PM
This virtual session aims to build individual confidence and empower practitioners to engage all children with the world of storytelling, encouraging children to see the wonder in this activity.
Are you the practitioner who will carry the story basket, wear the wig and have the puppets ready for a story? Or, are you the practitioner who fears the moment when someone asks you to read a story with a group of children? This session will offer discussion and suggestions regardless of your response.
We will explore what can often be seen in practice, discussing why storytelling is so powerful and how your play such a vital role in this experience for our youngest children.
In this session we will identify resources to help you and we will identify resources that could support you in your engagements with children who have additional needs or for those children who have English as an Additional Language.
Let’s embrace Visit Scotland's Year of Stories and take the storytelling pledge with Early Years Scotland.
