    Description & More Details

    Published by Redleaf Press New Product

    StoryMaking combines storytelling, the maker movement, the importance of play, and Reggio theory. It’s the practice of communicating in a variety of ways—language, gesture, images—over various systems—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.
