LI829: Resources and Services for Early Learners
LI829 focused on preparing children's librarians to work with resources and prepare services for early learners and their families. We focused on storytelling techniques and incorporating phonological awareness, alphabetical knowledge, music, puppetry, and drama into stortyime sessions.
The following two video segments are examples of the practice of engaging young children in early literacy skills.
This "The Gingerbread Boy" stortelling video segment highlights storytelling techniques, including introducing the story to children, writing a script with action instructions, memorizing major portions of the story, and applying engaging visuals.
This storytime video segment featuring Tanka Tanka Skunk! by Steve Webb incorporates phonological awareness, alphabetic knowledge, music, and drama to engage young children in early reading skills.
