Story Time Success: What's Behind the Magic?

Friday, October 16th, 2015

10:00 am to 3:30 pm.

held at Bonney Memorial Library, 36 Main Street, Cornish

Join Shannon Schinagl, Early Literacy Consultant with the Maine State Library, learn about and practice the basics of story time.  If you are thinking of starting a story time, or are new to story times, this workshop is for you!  We will discuss planning for different age groups (or all age groups!), choosing appropriate books and other activities, and incorporating early literacy skills.  This workshop will be very practical; we will practice everything we discuss and brainstorm solutions to any problems.  This workshop is for any early childhood professional doing, or thinking of doing, story time: library staff, preschool teachers, childcare providers, HeadStart teachers, and anyone else with an interest!

Certificates will be available for continuing education or contact hours. Lunch will be provided.  Please indicate any dietary needs when you register.
