Tips, Guidelines (rules) for a Successful Story Time
Please help me make story time a good experience for all by remaining close to your children and participating and interacting along with them.
If you find your child wandering too far away, please gently lead them back to the group.
If your child is crying or having a hard time, or not being gentle with another child, please feel free to step outside for a bit and come back when they are ready, or try to come back another time.
Cell phones and other electronic equipment should be silent while in story time.
Please no Eating in Class -If little tummies cannot wait, please feel free to step out of the room.
To avoid unnecessary distractions, please leave toys at home.
Little Listeners Storytime
Tuesdays 9:30 a.m.
For ages 17 months - age 3
Our Little Listeners Storytime for toddlers is a fun way to introduce early literacy skills to little ones on the move. Plenty of movement activities will emphasize body awareness, rhythm, and gross motor skills as they dance and jump along to the music. They will begin to develop listening skills and letter recognition through interactive stories, flannel boards, and rhymes. The program will end with learning centers to help toddlers with cooperative play and fine motor skills.
Rising Readers Storytime
Tuesdays 10:30 a.m.
For ages 3 - 5
Storytime for Rising Readers is for pre-school aged children to practice early literacy skills and improve their letter recognition in an enjoyable and interactive way. This program is filled with songs, rhymes, and flannel boards to teach preschoolers listening skills, interpersonal skills, and phonological awareness (the ability to hear and identify the little sounds that make up words). At the program’s end, preschoolers will engage in learning centers designed to promote fine motor and writing skills.
