Dear Zoo by Rod Campbell

2011-09-18 Library

今天在圖書館和大家分享 Dear Zoo 這可愛的故事. 可愛的小男孩寫信向動物園要一個生日禮物, 動物園送來不同尺寸和形狀的籠子, 讓小孩猜猜看裡面是什麼呢? 但是小男孩又因為各種因素將動物送回動物園了,最後決定到底得到什麼動物呢?

今天由Peter掌鏡幫我照相,我才發現, Wow~艾娃我說故事時還真是不太有形象,表情超多,又誇張.放心鼻孔放大和流口水的我都刪了,哈哈…

是的,又到了每個月一次的愛娃故事媽媽的時間囉~今天的故事非常有趣,重複性的故事情節,讓大小孩和小小孩都充滿興趣,幽默的故事結局更讓大人和小孩都哄堂大笑!每次看到這樣的狀況就忍不住想說:啊~這就是繪本的魔力呀!

Too Noisy

2010-10-07 Library

今天一大早送孩子們上學後來到圖書館當說故事媽媽,我很喜歡的一個身分和職稱.今天的故事是Too Noisy,小朋友們都很投入的為故事中的老公公在想辦法,也相當投入的在研究生活中常見物品及動物所發出來的聲音~這是一個很有意義的早晨.

Rosie’s walk

Posted by Ava Stewart on Thursday Oct 7, 2010 Under games 教學遊戲, Storytelling 我愛說故事

這是我們這星期分享的繪本: Rosie’s Walk   by Pat Hutchins

就如同影片中ㄧ樣,書中的文字非常少,簡單的圖片一目了然,卻不失故事性,反之,給予老師更多的發揮及延伸空間,帶給小朋友更多的想像空間.

以下是Ava在故事分享後,以樂器和繪本中兩位主角的圖片進行的活動:

Too Noisy story props

Posted by Ava Stewart on Friday Sep 17, 2010 Under props 教具, Uncategorized

This slideshow shows the door/mouth idea used for a cow’s mouth.

  1. Print the animal head (or door, window etc.). Choose one where the mouth fills as much of the paper as possible.
  2. Cut the part of the mouth that will open.
  3. Stick the printed part to another piece of paper (don’t glue the mouth part).
  4. Make a hole near the top, and another at the end of the mouth (use a needle to make the hole).
  5. Thread fishing line through the holes and tie.
  6. Optionally, use a piece of straw to make a slightly nicer pulling part behind the paper.

看到這教具好一陣子了,他們一直徘徊在我心頭…今天中於完成了.

製做流程:

1.列印出想要的圖案,以博士膜(卡典西德)護貝

2.割開”開合的地方”,由後方補上想要的顏色

3.貼到厚紙板上(不要黏割開處)

4.在步驟三完成的圖片上方和圖片打開的末端兩處以較粗的縫衣針打洞(若是左右開合的圖片,則是在圖片左方和開合處之最右端打洞)

5.穿入釣魚線,加以打結.

6.可選擇在線的末端先穿入吸管再打結,可當小把手.

I got this idea from this wonderful website.

Brown Bear Brown Bear What do you see

Posted by Ava Stewart on Tuesday May 18, 2010 Under props 教具, Storytelling 我愛說故事

這是媽媽和老師界中幾乎人手一本的繪本,句型簡單可隨小朋友年紀或學習程度進行調整或變化討論的深淺度,更可搭配各種主題來增加教學的內容及豐富課程,例如:顏色,動物,感官…等不同主題.

照片中的圖案是我用粉彩紙仿照書中圖片所做的,在圖書館說這本書時,我先以圖片讓小朋友認識各種動物,以此亦可確定當日小朋友大致上的程度,說完故事後,我將圖片貼在圖書是四周的牆壁上,請小朋友問我:Ava Ava What do you see? 再請該位小朋友找出我所說的動物,以此類推,互相練習.

在家中我只是隨意的把照片貼在牆上,沒有刻意按照書中的順序,也沒有要求小孩一定要念英文版本,後來,Nana是從中文先念起,例如:紅色的鳥,紅色的鳥 你在看什麼?念熟了以後開始念英文版本,念了一陣子之後Nana才開始找書來自己一頁一頁,自問自答的把整本書念完.有時候忘記下一頁是什麼還會偷翻一點點看一下再繼續念喔!而最有趣的是,後來我們一家人就會隨興的開始問答:Peter Peter What do you see? I see Christina looking at me. Christina Christina what do you see? I see a table looking at me(擬人化) 將我們當時所在地的物品和人物多念一次,百玩不厭唷.至於Christopher 的部分我們會趴到地上以他的角度來找答案並且幫他回答.

這是個很有趣的家庭活動–沒有人數,地點和時間的限制.當然這同時也是讓小朋友在沒有壓力的狀況下學英文的好方法,因為它會在無形中增加小朋友的單字量. 

小提醒:在遊戲過程中,我們從不應Nana不會的單字停止或中斷遊戲,我們只是觀察她的表情,如果她不會我們就會在她思考一下下但未感到挫折前幫她說出答案,如果Nana說錯了或發音上的問題,我們會自然的重複一次正確答案(沒有糾正或告知錯誤), Nana自然就會慢慢地把自己不會的單字記起來!

Why story

Posted by Ava Stewart on Sunday May 9, 2010 Under Feelings 愛娃心聲, Uncategorized

Why Story

我很愛聽故事!

我還記得小時候坐在客廳裡,聽著阿公用日文數數,數完了阿公就會開始說,他為什麼會說日文,他以前上學生期時要唱日本國歌…那是阿公的年代,阿公的故事,沒有故事書,是ㄧ個印在阿公腦海裡的故事.

我還記得有一年的那一晚,爸爸的兄弟姊妹們幾乎全聚到我家來,我不記得為何而聚,也不記得確切的時間,只記得那晚大家打通鋪睡在一起,爸爸和姑姑突然聊起他們如何度過八七水災:姑姑說那天早上他還背著叔叔稻田裡工作,爸爸說:水來時他爬到屋子的橫樑上趴著,眼看著被灌了水的豬從他眼前漂走…那是爸爸的年代,爸爸的故事,也沒有故事書,是ㄧ個印在爸爸腦海裡的故事.

就這樣一代接一代,而每一個年代又因時空的不同而有著全然不同的故事,所以,以前有說書的人把故事以口述的方式流傳下來,而現在有故事書,小說甚至於是電影. 我最近剛看完”班擇明的奇幻旅程”,我常在想如果我沒看過這部電影,我會有這樣的想法或想像嗎?答案是”不會”.所以,這部電影不但讓我多了想像的空間也給了我一點醒思!還記的”是誰嗯嗯在我頭上”是第一本大概也是唯一一本讓我笑到彎腰的繪本,如果不是這本書我大概不會覺得大便在任何人頭上是好笑得更不會仔細去想各種動物大便的不同之處.

這就是為什麼要聽故事,故事的內容可以包羅萬象,可以有真正的歷史,無限的想像,令人玩味的省思…每次看完一本好書,繪本或電影,都會一種很飽的感覺,一種心靈十分滿足的滿足感,滿足心靈的因素會因年齡不同而有所不同,也因此當我在十八歲時看”搶救雷恩大兵”時和二十五歲時看會有全然不同的感想,但這種滿足感並不會因為年齡而增減.

不論是聽故事,看書或是看電影都帶給我許多美好的經驗與回憶;而在日後的學習也提高了主動的意願,例如:想主動了解八七水災得更多細節及背景;印象的加深,例如:沒學過日語的我到現在還能記得日文1~6的發音;想像力的提升,例如:當爺爺告訴我他在日本時代的學生生活,在我腦海裡能夠勾勒出他所形容的畫面.

能和我一樣享受聽故事,也期許我自己能讓大家享受聽故事囉!

I love listening to stories!

I still remember when I was very little, I used to sit in the living room and listen to my grandpa counting in Japanese. Then he would start to tell us why he could speak Japanese and how he sang the Japanese national anthem in school. This was grandpa’s story, not in any storybook, only in his memory.

I still remember, in that year on that night, all of my dad’s siblings came and stayed in my house for the night and we slept on the floor together. Then my dad and my aunty started to tell what had happened that morning during the ’87 flood, how they put water into the pigs’ ears so the pigs wouldn’t drink and how they climbed onto the roof, this is my father’s story from his past, again, no storybook, only in his memories.

Just like that, generation after generation, the stories got passed on, each story completely different based on the time and situation. Back then they were all passed on by word of mouth, but now we have storybooks, novels and even movies, so stories can get passed on much easier now. Recently I just finished watching The Curious Case of Benjamin Button and wondered whether I would ever have thought of life in that way if I hadn’t seen the movie. The answer is “No.” So the movie didn’t only spark my imagination, but served as a reminder that we should not take life for granted and make the most of what we have. The very first storybook I read, that began my interest in storybooks, was one titled The Story of the Little Mole who knew it was None of his Business. Only because of this book I can see the humor in such a disgusting situation (having a poop on your head) and know the difference between the different types of droppings each animal has.

This is why we need stories. Books can contain anything in the storybook, real history, imaginative or motivational. After reading a good book or watching a good movie I have a real feeling of spiritual satisfaction. The reason for this spiritual satisfaction can be different according to your age, personality type and what is happening in your life. I watched Saving Private Ryan for the first time when I was 18, but when I watched it again when I was 25 the whole feeling of the whole movie was different, but it was just as satisfying, even though I was older.

No matter whether I listen to stories, read books or watch movies, they all give me a lot of different experiences and memories. Later on, it increased my motivation for my studies, for example I would want to know more about the flood that my dad went through, more details and more background to the event, and because it was meaningful to me, the details I learned really stay in my brain permanently. Another example is that I have never learned Japanese, but I can still count from one to six in Japanese and my imagination has increased a lot because my grandfather told me about his life in the Japanese age and I can clearly see the images of the things he described in my mind.希望大家都

I hope you enjoy stories as much as I do, and I hope that I can pass on that same joy to those who listen to my stories.
