Story Time STEAM in Action / en Acción

Every young child is a mathematician! Help early learners explore math and literacy concepts during reading time with Story Time STEAM!

 

Story Time STEAM in Action / en Acción

Story Time STEAM is a community project inspired by Story Time STEM, which focuses on supporting equity in early mathematics for children and families through story time programming and the use of shared reading experiences to support the development of early math skills.

See us in Action!

We invite librarians, educators, parents, and caregivers to explore these different voices as the librarians use the Story Time STEM materials and techniques.

These examples of Story Time STEAM in action feature distinct voices from librarians reading content created in both English and Spanish. Their story time videos offer librarians, educators, caregivers, and parents the opportunity to experience Story Time STEAM in use from the perspective of both English and Spanish speakers.

What is Story Time STEAM?

Story Time STEAM was created to help educators, librarians, and other community-based early learning providers better serve families of color and families who speak languages other than, or in addition to, English. This new, community driven resource focuses on culturally responsive examples of Story Time STEM in use. The participating librarians want everyone to see the tools and concepts in action!

About Story Time STEM

Story Time STEM was launched in 2020 as a research partnership between Washington STEM, the University of Washington Bothell School of Educational Studies, and Puget Sound area public library systems.

Story Time STEM emphasizes, through shared reading experiences, the integration of math and literacy, exploring concepts and practices through children’s literature, honoring young learners’ ideas through interactive discussion, and designing and facilitating professional learning with educators.
