The Maker Movement approach to literacy

StoryMaking is a first-to-market book celebrating the multimodal literacies and learning that are demonstrated by young children as they imagine, play, make, and share their stories. It encourages inquiry-based play to develop literacy, and combines:

  • Story-retelling and story creation
  • the Maker Movement—a creative and technological revolution in education that is underway around the globe
  • the importance of play in the early learning curriculum
  • Reggio theory

It’s the practice of communicating a variety of ways (e.g. language, gesture, images) over various systems (e.g. visual, audible, physical), and moving children forward in their literacy learning. This book shares the processes, first steps, materials, practical suggestions, student samples, documentation forms, and over 100 full-color photos so teachers can implement their own version of StoryMaking in their classrooms.

Age focus: 3–5.
Softbound, 176 pgs. Full color.

Review by: Lisa Daly - April 20, 2018
This unique text introduces StoryMaking as an approach to oral language development, learning and pedagogy. It artfully blends children’s natural desire to tinker and make sense of their world by connecting provocative learning spaces and intriguing loose parts; time to invent, create, imagine and intentional moments to share stories with others. Rich with examples, the authors provide an accessible insight into creating an inclusive culture of StoryMakers.
