Engage your littlest patrons with a program that incorporates the Early Literacy Skill of play. Play is an important part of child development, specifically early literacy. This program will provide participants with instructions on how to implement a sensory program on any budget. Participants will know how to turn a dollar store pool noodle into several early literacy activities, as well as hands-on sensory stations will be explored.
GOALS & LEARNING OUTCOMES
The goal of this program is to educate participants on the importance of play as an early literacy skill and will include hands-on learning through a variety of sensory play stations. Attendees will leave with the knowledge on how to replicate a similar program on any size budget as well as how to turn a basic dollar store pool noodle into several simple sensory activities for baby. Participants will also make a sensory play item to take with them!
I am a Children’s Librarian at the Greece Public Library in Rochester, New York. My expertise is Early Literacy Programming with a particular focus on children aged from birth-5 years old. I am passionate and committed to the value and impact play and literacy provide and enjoy investigating new program ideas that focus on these rewarding principles.
“Baby Sensory Play” is one of the programming fruits of that effort and I have been fortunate to deliver presentations at a number of professional library conferences and share my experiences with other library professionals.
