  • Encourage active participation
  • Give students an opportunity to choose books
storytelling with props
Storytelling with Props

Suggestions:

  • Be creative, make your own props (e.g., garage sales, dollar store, draw your own)
  • Look through school catalogues for pre-made props to go with popular stories
  • Add Picture Communication Symbols to favourite stories (don’t be afraid to alter books to suit the needs of your students)
using technology
Using Technology

Suggestions:

Encourage your students to become involved in the library program.

  • Step-by-step voice output device: use to record multiple lines in stories, poems, songs
  • BIGmack: use to record a repetitive line in the story
  • Adapted mouse: assists students with physical limitations to access computer activities
  • Powerlink: assists students with physical limitations to operate anything electronic. (e.g., tape recorder, fan, radio, blender, popcorn maker)
  • Promethean Board: an interactive white board that helps the teacher bring stories to life, use computer programs together as a group and other fun educational activities. Students enjoy using the board too!
