Little Learners Storytime: A great educational program where children, ages 3-5, can enjoy songs, rhymes, movement, and short stories. Parents and caregivers are encouraged to participate and enjoy, too!
Sensory Storytime: This early literacy class combines a short structured storytime with interactive play, music, and movement. For children of all ages and abilities.
What is Little Learners Storytime?
Little Learners Storytime focuses on age appropriate behaviors and skills and aligns learning with the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS). Parents and caregivers will also learn tips that can be used in working with children at home.
Why should I bring my three to five year old?
Attendance at and participation in story time has many benefits both for children and parents. Children who attend literacy programs are better prepared to start kindergarten ready to read. They gain pre-reading and pre-writing skills that are valuable in readying the child to read such as knowing letter names, developing oral language skills, how to hold a book and learning to read and write from left to right. Children experience social learning in a group setting. They are able to observe how other children act, i.e. sitting and listening, interacting with an adult other than their parent and more.
Children will sing and listen to books just like always, but they will also be exposed to further educational knowledge and age appropriate developmental opportunities. In Little Learners Storytime, we plan to learn about colors, numbers, letters, pre-writing skills, science, social studies (through holidays, feelings, behavior expectations) and more!
