Activity stations can add variety and interest to storytime. They can expand a story, theme, or concept. Many activities are designed to develop gross or fine motor skills, others focus in on pre-literacy or early math concepts.
In this interactive webinar program, Jill Burket Ragase will skip the crafts versus activities war give you a variety of tools that you will be able to use to:
Select activities that will engage a wide-age range of children and their parents.
Incorporate highly appealing books, activities and movement as that work for group participation
Recommend specific station activities that have proven successful
Strategies to execute stations in spaces small or large on a variety of budgets.
Tips to manage the transition to activity stations full time and/or how to incorporate aspects of stations into regular programming
Whether you want to turn every storytime into a hands-on STEAM experience or jazz up your storytime with some fun activities, this webinar provides participants with lots of ideas and resources for implementing activity stations in their storytimes and other programming.
