Felt Board Story Time

Using felt storyboards and felt pieces encourages the enjoyment of language – felt stories provide a more intriguing vehicle for sharing a rhyme or short story. They can help toddlers who show no interest in books to get some enjoyment out of storytime. Flannel boards aid in the teaching of visual literacy – learning to look and construct meaning from objects. Children use personal connections to enable the decoding of visual representations of their experiences. They will recognize a picture of a cat, drawn by different illustrators as a “symbol” for a cat, and know that it is not a cat, but represents one.

Jake the Music Man Visits!

It's no secret music gets us moving and helps us learn! Music encourages children’s inclination to move, developing their fine motor skills and gross motor skills. Plus, if the rhythm is very entertaining, it helps with kids' muscle development, strength and balance.
Our friends enjoyed a fun visit from Mr. Jake this morning, who played his clarinet, ukulele, cello, and bass. It was loads of fun!
