Children's Bedtime Story Teller

Hearing a story is a calming ritual for children just before bedtime.

Preparation:

    Bring a selection of children’s books to Star that would appeal to children ranging in age from two to seven years. (Although Star has a collection of books, it may not be sufficient.)

Time:

    Since bedtime for children under the watch of the Pelican “Children’s Monitor” is 8:00 P.M., the time to tell the story is 7:45 P.M.

      - The Pelican who is the Children’s Monitor will begin the hallway watch at 8:00 P.M. and finish at 11:00 P.M.

Location:

    Gather the children who want to hear a story at a place near the Pelican’s Monitoring Station on the first residential floor of the Oceanic Hotel.

      - Expect that parents will be near-by as they finish helping their children prepare for bed at 8:00 P.M.

Procedure:

    · Since children prefer consistency and routine at bedtime, it’s best for the same storyteller to present the story each evening.

    · Decide how to treat “late arrivals” who come after 8:00 P.M. and would like to hear a story.

      You’d be very kind to read a later story if you think that a child needs your calming support.

    · The Banquet and the Grand March on the final night may run past 8:00.

      You may foresee that you will be unable to present the story after 8:00 P.M. on the final night. You should then tell the children on the previous night that there will be no story on the final night.

            · After reading the story, say goodnight to the children.

      - Either a parent or guardian will put a child to bed, or children will go to their rooms by themselves.

                - Leave the hallway in the care of the Pelican “Children’s Monitor.”
