Description

MacMillian and Kirker's knack for creating storytimes that engage and delight young ones have made their previous books bestsellers. Now they're back with an all new assortment of original fingerplays, transitional rhymes, movement songs, flannelboards, sign language rhymes and other activities to spice up storytimes for ages two and up. This ready-to-go sourcebook for children's librarians, early literacy specialists, and other adults who work with young children offers everything needed to plan and host quality storytimes, including more than a dozen thematic groupings of activities, featuring such fun topics such as "All About Me," "Bugs and Insects," "Fairy Tales and Castles," and "People in my Neighborhood"; recommended storytime books for each theme, along with material lists, patterns for flannelboards and stick puppets, and illustrations of American Sign Language signs; and coding for each entry indicating which Common Core State Standards for Kindergarten skills it supports. Using the guidance and activities contained in this book, storytimes will be more magical than ever.
