Creating Happier, Healthier Children in our Community by Developing the Storytime Skills of ECE Workers

Monday, May 7
2:30 pm to 4:30 pm

ECE Workers! Join Burnaby Public Library children’s librarians Carol Belanger and Jamie McCarthy for a presentation on creating lively circle times using fun rhymes, puppets, felts, pom-poms and more. Storytimes help foster a healthy lifestyle in children by developing early literacy habits and encouraging social interactions, movement, play, and physical activity. This presentation will go over Storytime basics and will demo engaging songs, rhymes, and picture books. It will also feature an overview of the materials needed for making felt story pieces and suggestions on how to incorporate felts and other props into your storytelling. Handouts with great resources will be available, as well as the opportunity to check out recommended books, learn more about using the library with your group, and sign up for a group loan card (ECE workers only).

Open to ECE workers only. Free, but space is limited. Please register online, in person at the library, or by calling 604-522-3971.
