In this energizing session, Jim Gill helps explain the purpose behind his play. His active music play provides a context for children to develop abilities, such as self-regulation, essential to school success. Jim’s clever word play and rhymes in the context of active movement games also provide broad opportunities for literacy development.
Librarians will leave the session with a repertoire of music play activities that can be put to immediate –and purposeful- use in their programming. Best of all, they will leave the session understanding the power of play to inspire, in children, agility in thought and a love of learning.”
Lunch will be provided.
