  • Description

Ready for fun with preschoolers? Ready for over 65 activities that explore educational concepts, reinforce social skills, and engage children in interactive play? Ready for more ready-to-go programs for kids? Gail Benton and Trisha Waichulaitis--authors of the popular Ready-To-Go-Storytimes--are back with more of their fun, popular, and-most important--easy programs. This user-friendly manual and multimedia CD-ROM--graphics, stories, songs, sound effects, and more --gives you everything you need to conduct seasonal, crowd-pleasing events for preschoolers. Each of the four units--Teddy Bear Picnic, Winterfest, Spring Fling, and Halloween Boo!--contains multiple activities. They include step-by-step planning instructions, game ideas, storytime scripts and patterns (for flannel board, prop, and magnetic stories), craft ideas, station signs, and even certificate masters. These large-scale programs can be presented as single events, or broken down, with each element--over 65 activities in all--conducted independently of the other. Activities are explained with easy-to-follow instructions and patterns for reproducing game pieces, boards, and signs. Tips are offered throughout to show you how to adapt each activity for any sized library. Whether you are planning an event for five to 500 preschoolers inexpensively and efficiently, here is the all-in-one source you need to produce inexpensive, efficient, first-rate programs.
