March 5th, 2022: David Row (Virtual Workshop)
"Stories That Sing"
9:00am - 12:00pm
About This Workshop
Children’s books offer endless possibilities. Don’t just read the words on the page – make the story come to life through movement, improvisation, drama, poetry, and song. Reinforce the content you’re learning in your classroom even as you explore literacy concepts and connect with themes from history and culture. Come to this session to hear new stories and explore ideas to revitalize old favorites.
