These products are original and filled with creative, easy to use ideas. The STORY DRUM produces a sound that captures children’s attention and they are ready for a good time.
Mary Jo’s unique approach of combining story play, movement and song invites everyone to snap, clap wiggle and giggle to the power of language. This is a one-of-a-kind project.
The CD and accompanying booklet introduce music, storytelling, extension activities, complementary books, and a vocabulary boost. Snap, Clap, Wiggle & Giggle has music for math, action, nature, science, language and social emotional. Mary Jo is a master storyteller and always adds her special touch to every story and song.
Storytelling with Puppets, Props, and Playful Tales introduces ECE into the world of using props and puppets in story time. Puppet Play reinforces the wonderful world of puppets, how and why to use them. Children develop imagination and create communication that stimulate their thinking skills.
When a story comes to “The End” it should not be the end. Instead continue the learning with activities and experiences that promote conversation and inquiry. Storytelling is a powerful tool that is sure to light a fire in every child’s imagination.
Excite children with a renewed interest in STORYTELLING and how to use PUPPETS, MUSIC, and PROPS to extend their world of being a CHILD.
