Parachutes, Play and Early Literacy

Anne at So Tomorrow has a great blog post this week about using parachutes with preschool kids.  Lots of great ideas about what she does, plus lots of references to other resources.

Toddlers in Eau Claire enjoy the parachute

To get even more ideas about incorporating play into your early childhood programming, don't forget to sign up for the YSS/DLT  Early Literacy Pre-Conference on October 22.  Jim Gill will show us some great ways (and reasons) to play and sing with kids.  Anna Haase Krueger (now from Minnesota) will talk about making your storytime more engaging with flannel boards, puppets, props, and more.  Shelly Collins-Fuerbringer and Ashley Bieber will discuss early literacy areas and show you some things that work in their libraries.  If you want to learn about bringing the Every Child Ready to Read message to a diverse audience, then you can attend a session with Tanya Misselt and Yee Vue.  And the CCBC will be there, talking about great books for young children.  Plus, there will be a chance to see what other librarians from around the state are doing.  You can register today!
