Starting in November, Tuesdays on the blog will be “Growing Readers” day! My library received a grant from Target to begin an after-school storytime program for children learning to read. We’ll be sharing lots of different kinds of early literacy activities, as well as stories, songs, and rhymes.
Next week, I’ll do a brief outline for how the story portion of the program runs. After that, each week will be a new literacy activity. At each program so far, we’ve done five table activities — so I should have lots of material to work with and post about.
I hope that this new feature will get you excited about early literacy and incorporating it into a new program or into an existing program!
