Circle time/story time can be a delightful challenge with any group of children but what about when the children know little or no English? You have your props, books, and finger plays ready but is this enough?
This workshop will help you utilize your present store of knowledge to present circle/story times that meet the specific needs of children learning English. The presenter will demonstrate ways of introducing stories effectively to English language learners as well as methods of fostering oral language development.

Carolyn Sullivan has been involved in Early Childhood Education for the last 29 years, including work with children who have special needs, preschool children and their mothers learning English, and as a Supported Child Development Consultant. In every environment there have been children who require a bit of extra effort to include in the group and support through daily or life transitions. These children have been the inspiration for this workshop.
