Time: 9:00 AM – 12:30 PM
Place: Canajoharie Library
Presenter: Joyce Laoisa
Here’s a chance for you to have fun, learn, and be more effective by bringing the latest early literacy techniques to your library storytime programs.
By attending, you will bring back to your library an array of helpful tools to add zing to your programs. (Think musical shakers, play parachutes, felt boards, etc. – you’ll choose what you will use!). You will also have an opportunity to have Joyce visit one of your library programs to assess and offer feedback on how best to use these core elements to make a real difference in preparing children to start kindergarten ready to learn!
What you’ll learn:
– Deepen your understanding of techniques for effectively engaging children with books, words, music, writing and play
– Develop your skills in incorporating these techniques strategically into your early literacy programs
– Build your skill and ease in embedding information for parents and caregivers about making these literacy activities a part of every day
This program is for all member library staff and volunteers who present early literacy programs for children and their caregivers.
This workshop is supported in part by funds from the New York State Library’s Family Literacy Services grant program.
