Enriching Language Development in Early Childhood
Nursery Rhymes . Puppetry . Storytelling
Suzanne Down, Juniper Tree School of Story and Puppetry Arts
Cynthia Aldinger, LifeWays North America
The development of speech and language is one of the greatest achievements of our lifetime. It begins with the first cry at birth, and can grow in leaps and bounds throughout the first 7 years. Yet research shows that language skills, and thus literacy, are rapidly declining in our schools. How can the therapeutic art of storytelling and puppetry be one of the best supports for our children’s love and aptitude for language?
We will look at the development of speech in the first years of life, and focus on the wisdom of rhythm, alliteration, consonantal delight, and joyful soundings of the nursery rhyme in storytelling and visual presentation through puppetry. Puppet-making will be included.
UPDATE: All are welcome to join us for the opening talk on Friday evening. The Saturday and Sunday sessions are for registered participants only.
