“Owl Babies the Next Day” – Join Us!

owl babies next day 2“Living through the story appears to allow students to internalize the story on a much deeper level,” say Pellegrini and Galda in their landmark article “The Effects of Thematic-Fantasy Play Training on the Development of Children’s Story Comprehension,” published in 1982.

The use of dramatization and story baskets are research-based, natural extensions of story supporting narrative development in young children. Join us at our IBC offices on February 16th from 4-6 p.m. as we explore the ins and outs of story extensions. We will begin with a discussion about what types of stories to read and when to read them and wrap up the evening with a make and take opportunity wherein participants create their very own Owl Babies story basket.

This two-hour workshop is a great opportunity for teachers, administrators, and parents who are new to School Literacy and Culture’s work. Learn more and register on our website: http://literacy.rice.edu/workshops-rice.
