My students need storytelling props and puppets to stimulate their imaginations and create a love of books and reading.
Welcome to the Ladybug Classroom... the spot for eighteen energetic, loving, and delightful Pre-Kinders plus two teachers who just love them bunches! Our students come from a variety of backgrounds and ethnicity, some of who are homeless or in foster care, and many who come from families that serve at our local military bases. Together we form a school family that works together to grow and develop through play-based learning and teaching - the way young children learn best.
Although it looks like we’re just playing, my little learners are engaging in structured activities to teach specific skills and knowledge.
Through participation in these positive play-based learning experiences, my children develop their ability to get along with others, learn cognitive and language strategies, and acquire the building blocks for a strong foundation for school success. Such a playful approach to learning builds on my children’s interests and responds to their ideas for play while making happier people who continue to love playing and learning.
Storytelling plays an important role in the early childhood curriculum and my project, Interactive Story Time, focuses on creating a love of books and reading in my students. It goes beyond just reading a story--it uses storytelling kits, props, and puppets to bring the stories alive and capture the attention of my students. The engaging storytelling experiences in this project include Chicka Chicka Boom Boom Activity Tree, Brown Bear Puppet and Props, Go Away, Big Green Monster Storytelling Puppet Kit, and Nursery Rhyme Traditional Finger Puppet Story Set.
The kids really enjoy these storytelling experiences as a whole group and are excited to retell them in their own special way with their friends!
Storytelling experiences are a powerful way to reach children and goes beyond simply reading the story. It stimulates the imagination, creates story awareness and the ability to retell stories while strengthening listening skills, developing thinking skills, and encouraging creativity. By funding my project you will help provide a solid foundation on which to build future reading and writing skills.
