Free Tools for Teaching Solutionary Storytimes

As a humane educator in elementary schools, I always ended my lessons with a "solutionary story"—a read-aloud of a nonfiction picture book about a solutionary who has helped people, animals or the planet. (There are so many great books to use, and more coming out each year—which is why I created my book lists in Solutionary Stories Central!)

 

The kids loved solutionary stories time—so I created a "moving poem" (kinesthetic/participatory), a lesson routine, and an activity book to go with it, which they loved, too!

 

Now I'm happy to share these teaching tools here with you, for free—to use in your classroom, library, homeschool, afterschool program, summer camp... These tools give you a ready-made single storytime lesson, or an unlimited series of lessons, using any of my books or any of the recommended books in Solutionary Stories Central
