Innovative Story and Craft Program for District 11 Pre-K's and Kindergartens

A new program for the District 11 Pre-K's and kindergartens is currently being offered this year.  Based on the picture books recommended in my new bookw, teachers can schedule presentations that include a story reading and a craft project. 

 

How do you know when a program is successful?  I guess when the teacher wants you to return as soon as possible and the children don't want to go outside for recess, but would rather work on their craft project longer.:)  When I left Columbia School today, after reading Katy and the Big Snow and helping the children in Ms. Pike's kindergarten make a snow-covered road picture, I was walking on air.  As I said goodbye to the children and thanked them for having me in their classroom, one of the pupils piped up, "Today I had the most fun EVER!"

 

Reading is one of the most important things we can do with young children...it engages them in the world between the pages and allows them to relate their own experiences and concerns to those of the characters in the stories. In addition, reading picture books and participating positively with their children in craft projects and cooking activities helps parents build self-esteem, develop pre-literacy skills and create a life-long parent-child bond.

 

 

I'm already scheduled for three presentations next month, but I'm always happy to share my passion for picture books and uplifting young children.  I'd be happy to discuss my availability to do the SHOW ME HOW! program for local church groups or libraries...please feel free to contact me at: vivian@positiveparentalparticipation.com

Are you a saver or a tosser?

My sister-in-law once told me if you didn’t use something in a year, it was time to get rid of it.

I’ve got stuff that I haven’t used in… 10 or 20 years!

As many of you know, we are moving from Colorado to New Hampshire at the end of September.…

Monday Writing Magic: Building Relationsips Within the Kid Lit Community

Writing can be one of the most solitary occupations. Many writers carve out time from busy schedules that often include family and job responsibilities. Setting the alarm early or staying up after everyone else is in dreamland are two ways to find ‘quiet’ time.

Even though most of us need to be ‘alone’ when we are creating, it is really important to be part of a community that can…
