A Joyous Way to Learn with Jim Gill: a Workshop for Educators, Librarians, and Caregivers

Wednesday, July 17 @ 9:30 am12:30 pm

Registration Required

A Joyous Way to Learn!

Music Play to Promote Readiness, Literacy, Math Development and Inclusion

Author, musician, and child development specialist, Jim Gill incorporates recent songs as well as in-depth discussion connecting music play with school readiness, literacy development and early math development.

Early childhood professionals will leave the session inspired to share a new repertoire of songs and playful literacy activities with the children they care for. Even more, they will leave the session understanding that what is most challenging about working in early childhood is also what makes the profession so exciting. When we define our teaching as helping children learn, we not only provide joyous challenges for the children. We also keep ourselves engaged and rejuvenated by watching their excitement as they learn.

This workshop is perfect educators, librarians, and caregivers. 

Registration required. Cost is $10 per person. Please bring cash or check payment made out to Kalamazoo Public Library the day of.
