STORYTIME: ANY LANGUAGE. ANY COMMUNITY.- TRAINING VIDEO
English is not the primary language of all stortytime participants or their caregivers and English-speakign caregivers often want to expand their young charges view of the world and vocabulary with words or songs from other cultures in other languages. To this end, Criss Cross Mangosauce has produced a staff training video to teach you three techniques for introducing language--ANY language--in an effective way to young people and their caregivers that is easy for you.
While the language spoken in the video is Spanish, these techniques can be used with ANY LANGUAGE in ANY COMMUNITY.
