Using books to stimulate a discussion about past experiences is an engaging way to help kids of all ages connect with caregivers and family members and build autobiographical memories. Sometimes these conversations result in new stories you may want to write down and keep.
Join us and Second Star to the Right Book Store on June 1st at 7 PM Mountain Time to ring in summer reading with an author panel on promoting storytelling with your kids featuring bestselling authors Andrea Wang, Beth Anderson, and Dow Phumiruk, (moderated by me, Carolee Dean), as they talk about their books, their personal experiences with writing, and why they believe personal narratives are important. The event is free but you will need to register at Event Brite https://www.eventbrite.com/e/story-frames-for-teaching-literacy-panel-promoting-storytelling-with-kids-tickets-153873398477
Download the FREE PDF entitled "Picture Books for Reminiscing." It is based on activities from my new book, Story Frames for Teaching Literacy, and includes a short summary of picture books by the authors on the panel along with questions to stimulate conversations between children and caregivers.
Hope to see you on June 1!
