Lapsit

Public

Description 

The library hosts Lapsit classes each week. Pre-registration is required and the class size is limited to 15 children, with their adult participant. Activities include signing a good morning song, where we welcome each child by name in the song. We also have group story time and sing/perform "If Your Happy and You Know It." I use weekly tip sheets which include various rhymes, fingerplays and songs we share as a group. Finally, we include game a of Ring Around the Rosie, a bubble game and the Hokey Pokey. Sometimes we add other songs and movement fun. I include a second story time book and then we conclude by singing "The More we Get Together." Each participating child receives two stickers as they depart. 

This is a wonderful program that includes family engagement in literacy building skills and shows the joys of reading and play time together for young children. 

The library incurred minimal cost to execute. We secured a CD player, a few music CD's, musical shaker eggs and we use books in the library's collection. We have a grant that helps fund the program.

Letter "A" Storytime

Description 

For this special storytime, we read books and sang songs that featured the letter "A" as well had a craft making activity. The participants (along with their caregivers) used fine motor skills to paint a paper plate apple to take home. The cost was minimal as we secured supplies from the local Dollar Store.
