Story-times and Transitions with Heart: Lessons for Early Educators from youth librarians

October 24, 2018 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

Register Here!

Story times and circle time are important parts of the day in most early childhood classrooms. While they are central to the early education experience, these parts of the day can come to feel routine or uninspiring for educators and children alike. Participants in this webinar will learn simple ways to make whole group experiences more lively and inclusive by incorporating the power of music, rhyme, and social-emotional concepts. These same building blocks can be used to ease transitions and make for a happier classroom environment. With real-life examples, practical tips, and a touch of humor, participants will gain an understanding of the ways public library story time techniques can enrich their practice.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Attendees will understand the connection between music and memory, and be able to describe the benefits of music as a learning tool.
  2. Participants will recognize the importance of flexibility and social-emotional awareness in creating inclusive, child-friendly story-times.
  3. Participants will be able to identify three techniques for adding interactive elements when reading


All sessions are 1.5 hours long, and include a brief announcement from our sponsor.
