Hi, I’m Erin

One time First Grade Teacher/Reading Specialist…. Now my two crazy boys keep me pretty busy. My boys love reading and hearing books read to them. We also love seeing books come to life by creating crafts. It’s amazing to see how proud they are of their creations. I hope these ideas share the love of reading for you and your family too. 

Story Time Crafts purpose….

Story Time Crafts hopes that every child can become a life long reader which creates life long learner. Reading to your child is one of the best things you can do for his or her education!

Benefits of Reading aloud to your children:

  • Builds comprehension skills 
  • Leads to better performance school
  • Ohio State University study that found reading five books a day to your children exposes them to over a million words by kindergarten than those children who did not have books read to them 
  • Creates a bond between reader and child, creating a memory association with a love of reading.
