Story time with music and movement at libraries
My first memory of going to the Hortonville, WI public library was for their story time. (Thanks, Mom) I can remember walking through the doors, into the downstairs area and participating in their story time. I have a clear memory of sitting in a circle, listening to books, singing songs, and the crafts. I also remember several Christmas crafts I took home.
There is a certain feeling and smell about libraries that seems to be replicated across the country. Recently, I shipped a stretchy band to Little Egg Harbor Branch Library in New Jersey. Just the name of that library made me want to visit it!
I have taken my kids to local library times and continue to do circle time with my little ones at home, as well. I am thankful for the books, music and creativity that was built into my childhood. It continues to impact me, my children, and all that use our movement props. I came across this excellent article: “Using Songs and Music Education Techniques in Your Toddler/Preschool Storytime” and hope you can benefit from it as well.
