Workshop: Strategies for Spanish Story time
Books stimulate intelligence, creativity, imagination, verbal capacity and concentration in little ones. But, what book should we read?, How do you read to children? What determines interest within the child? The topic of interest? The narrator?
This workshop, presented in Spanish, is targeted to teachers, parents, babysitters or anyone that works with early age. During our 3 ½ hour workshop we will provide participants with practical and SIMPLE strategies which will afford them the opportunity to put in practice their natural abilities as storytellers and actors.
