1 147 Traditional Stories for Primary School Children to Retell
SMITH, CHRIS
1907359397 / 9781907359392 
Here is the perfect collection for any teacher who needs a sourcebook of great traditional stories for children aged 5-11 to work from. This book is a handy one-stop shop of 147 stories to retell, with an index linking all the stories to topics, values, plot types, genre, age group and country of origin. The stories come with extensive sources and alternate print and web versions for teachers to use when working with the stories. All are written in the storyteller’s voice, for easy retelling by teachers and students. Stories come with tips for telling and may be photocopied within the school.

Chris Smith developed the Storytelling Schools’ learning model, ‘Where children learn to be storytellers’ over ten years working with schools. He chose this collection in response to teachers’ requests for appropriate stories so that children can learn to retell stories as a powerful way of learning.

The collection is the first companion book to The Storytelling School: Handbook for Teachers.

<B>A-Z Collection of Behaviour Tales </B><I> From Angy Ant to Zestless Zebra</I>, PERROW, SUSAN
3 A-Z Collection of Behaviour Tales From Angy Ant to Zestless Zebra
PERROW, SUSAN
1907359869 / 9781907359866 
NOT YET PUBLISHED, DUE AUGUST 2017
Please consider ordering in advance
Each story in this collection begins with an undesirable or out-of-balance situation and, through the use of metaphor and an imaginative story journey, leads to a more desirable resolution. In this way, the stories also have the potential for nurturing positive values.

The stories cover many kinds of universal behaviour. Following the alphabet from A to Z, the behaviour is identified in the story title e.g. anxious, bossy, cranky … greedy … jealous … lazy … swearing … uncooperative ... and more. The stories can be told directly, or adapted. They can be turned into home-made picture books and puppet shows, or used as springboards for the creation of new tales for particular behaviour challenges and situations.

AUDIENCE: Educators, storytellers, therapists, school counsellors, nursery and primary teachers, play leaders, education and childcare students, parents and grandparents.  

Susan Perrow runs therapeutic storytelling seminars from China to Africa, Europe to America and across her own sun-drenched land of Australia.  She is a storyteller, teacher trainer, parent educator and counsellor. She is author of Healing Stories for Challenging Behaviour and Therapeutic Storytelling. A-Z Behaviour Tales offers new stories from her research and workshops.

<B>Active Arithmetic </B><I> Movement and Mathematics Teaching in the Lower Grades of a Waldorf School</I>, ANDERSEN, HENNING
4 Active Arithmetic Movement and Mathematics Teaching in the Lower Grades of a Waldorf School
ANDERSEN, HENNING
1936367505 / 9781936367504 
5.5 x 7.5 inches, illustrated.
it possible to teach arithmetic in the first years of schooling in such a way that the majority of pupils do not experience the lesson as a strain? Are there ways of practicing arithmetic that do not adversely affect the child’s zest for life?

Active Arithmetic! Describes the very special way in which arithmetic is taught in a Rudolf Steiner/Waldorf school. Rather than attempting to give a complete account of this teaching method, the book concentrates upon the many different aspects of movement and drawing exercises. These exercises satisfy both the children’s great need for physical activity and their innate curiosity about the world of numbers.

The book is directed not only to teachers of arithmetic in the younger classes, but also to people who work with the same age group outside of school using games and movement. Parents with children requiring special support at home and teachers working with children with special needs will find in the book a wealthy source of helpful ideas.

Written by an experienced Waldorf teacher in Denmark, Active Arithmetic tells how to make math come alive through movement, games, and rhythm in the early grades. Making math a meaningful and memorable event in a young child's life is all important. Active Arithmetic will help you to do it! All recent brain development illustrates that movement is the key to a rich and fully developed skill set in children. Music and rhythm have been shown to light up the whole brain and to help children understand and apply complex math concepts. The many ideas, imaginative games and activities described by this experienced Waldorf teacher hold the key to "Aha!" moments for comprehending important math ideas.

GERSHWIN, DOUGLAS ED
1936367300 / 9781936367306 Softbound 
How can we understand the non-denominational nature of the Waldorf school even as we address the central role of the Christ impulse in the Waldorf school? This collection of lectures from the Colloquium held in Spring Valley, NY, January 2005, provides a thoughtful basis for a discussion of this challenging aspect of Waldorf education.

Presenters included: Douglas Gerwin, Douglas Sloan, Betty Staley, Roberto Trostli, and Dorit Winter.

The authors seek to address why “this is not a call to Christian worship nor is it an appeal to any sectarian Christian doctrine.”
