Developing a Storysack Project within a Sure Start Initiative: Reflections and Emerging Findings on Working Together with Parents To Produce a Community Resource.
Forde, Jan; Weinberger, Jo
This paper explores a community project to develop "storysacks" within an area of identified economic and social need. (Storysacks are books sent home for preschool children in England to share with their parents on a regular basis; each sack contains a fiction book, a nonfiction book linked to the story, and a wide variety of props which bring stories alive for children and help them learn through play.) The paper offers an overall outline of the project to date and plans for the future. It is an interim report written by the community teacher who has been centrally involved in the work and an independent researcher, in consultation with those involved in the project. Its aim is to document work on the project so far, identify lessons being learned, and present emerging findings. (Contains 11 references.) (NKA)
