Behavior Management in Storytime (2 hours)
Managing and redirecting behavior during storytime can be challenging. There can be confusion over when and how to step in and redirect, when to seek assistance, and how to avoid these challenges in the first place. In this interactive workshop, Jill Burket Ragase will give you a variety of tools that you will be able to use to:
• Structure storytime for behavioral success
• Set and communicate age appropriate behavior expectations for children and their caregiver(s)
• Diffuse challenging situations
• Employ techniques to regain focus without losing the fun
We’ll discuss designing storytimes to encourage success, how to communicate behavior expectations consistently and clearly, what to do when things go wrong, as well as specific techniques to bring the focus back to the intended fun at hand.
