Circle time/Story time can be a delightful challenge with any group of children but what about when the children know little or no English? You have your props, books, and finger plays ready but is this enough?
This workshop will help you utilize your present store of knowledge to present circle/story times that meet the specific needs of children learning English. The presenter will demonstrate ways of introducing stories effectively to English language learners as well as methods of fostering oral language development. There will also be a brief discussion on how children learn additional languages.
