Play Your Way To Literacy And STEM
- Children learn through play; play is one of the five practices recommended in Every Child Ready to Read. Adults can also learn through play; in this workshop, participants sample playful activities while connecting them with school readiness domains and research that supports their value. Matching play with storytimes in appropriate ways and encouraging parents as play partners makes this workshop a valuable and joyous learning opportunity. Help children build social-emotional skills including self-regulation, problem solving, and mutual respect while providing opportunities for adult participants to also learn through play.

The importance of learning through play and hands-on experiences includes a quick tutorial that shows how developmental tips can be easily created following a 1,2,3 formula and then used in programs.
Research is then connected with practical activities for library programs that can be used in-house or during virtual programs to help build children literacy skills... and STEM skills as well!
