"Story" is a part of a child's first language and key to exploring and understanding their world. Imaginative play is essential to a healthy childhood and a more compassionate, fulfilling adulthood. And so, providing children opportunities for open-ended narrative play with puppets and props will not only allow them to develop social skills like sharing and cooperation, it will also help use their imagination to grow in language and literacy! In this webinar, facilitated by Storyteller and Narrative Consultant, Jenifer Strauss, learn how to provide children with simple puppets and props from every-day household items to provide "anytime, anywhere" opportunities for narrative play.
