Recognize the moment of opportunity: “Do you know what?” Put down your phone

Listen with curiosity, listen to understand Get on the child’s level

Use a listening gaze, make eye contact Ask for more: “And then what?” Use encouragement: “That’s interesting!, can you tell me more about it?” Confirm understanding, paraphrase: "it was raining and she fell?!"

Tips:

E R

W E

When talking with the child...

You cannot have dialogue without having a good listener. Guess what!? That’s YOU (the adult)! Tell the child, “I am working on learning how to be a good listener.”

P

You can ask the child to repeat their interesting quote! Say, “Wow, you just said something very intriguing! Can you say that again so I can write it down?” Practice slow listening... It is ok to not give a response right away. Say, “Maybe we could think for a little while about what you just said. I’m going to write it down so we don’t forget!”

Listening Challenge - Part 1 Try to collect quotes from your child while they are not directly conversing with you

I V

Tips:

E R

W E

When observing the child...

“Stand aside for a while and leave room for learning, observe carefully what children do, and then if you have understood well, perhaps teaching will be different than before.” -Loris Malaguzzi

P

Be a silent listener. Challenge yourself to just watch the child as they play. Listen in... you might hear something interesting! Listen with curiosity. As the child talks with someone else, notice how they speak and express their ideas and thoughts. Listen with an open mind. The child may have misconceptions about something. That’s ok, allow them to work through their thoughts and listen through their process.

Listening Opportunities While Observing the Child

W E

When the child is working with objects and speaking to them They might be serving sand cupcakes to an invisible guest

E R

When the child is role playing (making up a story) alone or with friends/siblings They might be pretending to be a parent giving instruction to a baby

P

During dinner/lunch/breakfast They might have an interesting observation about the menu. "I hate broccoli" During their bathtime They might say "soap is so slippery" During bedtime They might make a remark about dreams, bedtime stories or how much they love you...

Listening Challenge - Part 2 You might have unexpected or challenging responses from the child... That’s ok! Remember to keep an open mind and LISTEN to their thoughts and ideas as you explore together!

Challenge, Don't Rescue!

E R

Encourage the child to share what they know about their topic of investigation. Ask them questions as a fellow learner- not as the adult who knows all the answers.

Guiding questions:

I wonder what are the things we know about our question/ idea? What does this remind you of? Let's think together!

I V

Experiment to find answers to the child's question or idea!

E R

Guiding questions:

How could we explore this idea with an experiment? What did our experiment tell us about our question?

P

It's ok if the experiment didn't directly answer your question. Sometimes you find that the experiment didn't work or leads to more questions!

Tips For Setting Up Dialoge Over Dinner:

W E

1) Make the commitment! Eat together. 2) Keep it simple! Share a common place to eat together. A simple meal with a candle in the middle of the table sets the mood for a warm conversation. 3) Tell your family that you would like to try something new to make dinner even more fun. Share the question cards with them. 4) Pick only one question per dinner... and take your time with it!

Seating:

Child-Adult Storytelling Step by Step Guide

Make sure the child sees you write down their words. If you are handwriting make sure the child sits to your left-hand side if your are right-handed and vice versa.

How to begin:

I V

W E

If you haven't done this before with your child, you may need to throw in a starter: "I like the card your friend gave you. Would you like to tell a story about when that happened in class?"

Length:

P

E R

This depends on how much time you can dedicate to this activity. Many children really love doing this and their stories can be very long. If you don't have time, you can limit the story to just one page. "Your story can be as short as you want but it can't be longer than this page." This is the perfect time to introduce the "to be continued" concept.

Echoeing: As you write the child's words, repeat out loud what they said: "one-day-my-friend-Maddy-gave-me-a-card..."

Printable by CoAuthor - www.coauthorapp.com

29


Child-Adult Storytelling Step by Step Guide Encourage: If the child is hesitating between thoughts, occasionally encourage them: "Yes, and then what happened?" "Ok, go on. I'm ready."

Narrative Development:

W E

Expand on the child's thoughts: "Wow! You must have felt really happy when your friend gave you the card!" "I like the part when your friend surprised you, would you like to put that in your story?"

Skill Development:

E R

I V

Occasionally ask the child to spell a word that is a bit challenging. "Do you remember how to spell card?" "Where should I put the exclamation mark?" Don't overdo it though so you don't interrupt the storytelling flow.

P

Editing and revision:

Occasionally ask the child about sequence in their narrative: "So your friend first surprised you with a balloon then she gave you the card?"

Rereading: When the child is finished dictating, tell them you will reread their story back to them to make sure "you got everything right."

My Ideas Matter Your child has important ideas, and their ideas matter! Ideas are distinctly human creations but sometimes we don't know what to do with them. Fortunately, there are ways to teach young children how to hold on to their ideas. Take some time to share this coloring poster with your child to help them showcase their ideas and hold on to them!

Quick Guide: You could ask the child:

I wonder about how things work...

I show my ideas when I play like this:

"If you were to draw any question you have about the world, what would you draw? Let's think about a good question together."

I share my ideas with someone I love!

One day I made... "Let's write a short story together about something you loved making. You can tell the story and I can write it down. You can also write if you want."

"Maybe you could draw a person you like to share your ideas with!"

I have ideas...

"What idea would you like to share? You can draw your idea or draw yourself thinking about your idea."

"You can draw yourself playing or we could find a take a picture of your play, print it and paste it here."

I think the world would be a better place if...

"What do you think could make the world a better place? You can write or draw your answer here."

Here's how I help my community... "Who have you helped or would like to help? Would you like to draw or write down your answer?"

You can stick a cutout of your face here.

You can add accessories!
