Free Storytime Resource for Nursery Schools

Are you looking for fun ways to bring storytime to life at your nursery school?

We’ve created a free Polylino Teacher Guide and make-your-own Storytime Dice for early years practitioners to use at their nursery school to combine storytime with other activities.

“One of the greatest gifts we can bestow upon children now and for their future, is the foundations and appetite to read. Storytimes are the building blocks for this!” (Jake Hope)

About the Teacher Guide and Storytime Dice

The Bringing Storytime to Life Teacher Guide and Storytime Dice have been developed in collaboration with our children’s literature experts across the different countries where we have our digital picture book service Polylino.

The Storytime Dice features six themes of activity which can be run with the children at your nursery school during or after storytime, and the Teacher Guide provides lots of activity ideas under each of the themes.

To get this free resource for your nursery school, simply complete the short form below with your details and you’ll be able to download the PDF guide immediately.

Use Polylino with your Storytime Dice

The Storytime Dice can be used in conjunction with all of the books on our multilingual digital picture book service Polylino as well as those in your nursery library. Our literature expert Jake Hope has created a special bookshelf on Polylino which features books he thinks are particularly well suited to use with the activities outlined in the guide.

If you don’t already have a subscription to Polylino, you will automatically receive a free 30-day trial* when you sign up for this storytime resource.

With Polylino you can read and listen to hundreds of UK picture books which align with the EYFS curriculum. Many of the books on Polylino can also be listened to in many other languages, so it’s a fantastic alternative way to engage your EAL students and involve them at storytime with all the other children.
