Storytimes and Events

Photo of children at storytime.Our programs for toddlers and preschoolers provide a fun way to spend time with your children while introducing them to the six early literacy skills necessary for reading and writing. The first literacy skill Print Motivation is taught by showing children that reading is special and something to look forward to. By listening to rhyming stories, finger plays and songs, children are gaining Phonological Awareness. Print Awareness comes from watching books being handled and pages being turne. As we read and talk about the stories we are teaching Narrative Skills. Vocabulary is enhanced as we read books on various topics and sing songs. Letter Knowledge comes from the alphabet books we read and some of the crafts we complete.

 

When you bring your children to story time, you are getting so much more than just a time of socialization and fun. Your children are gaining the skills to be a life-long reader! Be sure to check out the links below to see what great programs we are offering this week.
