Rule #3 - Engage the imagination or no learning ever takes place. Use the senses: have the children see, feel, experience....through the imagination. This leads to other learning and a desire to know more..... I used a large vinyal cutout of a dinosaur footprint (actual size) and then had children estimate how many people could stand on the footprint, etc. They competed in dinosaur roaring contests as we learned about vocal cords, sound waves, and wondered if dinos really were related to birds might they chirp really loud????

Love your blog - I am a big tracker myself - wish I could track one of those - but if I saw one I think my anti-gn position would rapidly shift to a pro BIG gun position. HA!

I am following a track of my own... I actually came here to request that you update you link to my blog - the art of storytelling show - formally art of storytelling with children... I still talk about all the same stuff just have included more cool stuff.

If you could update your link on right of your blog...
here is the new URL

and here is a link to all the pages that talk about telling stories in a library...

Here is the URL of the new podcast logo -

Keep Blogging!!!
Thanks for the links!
