Notes from Storytime

Shape Up!

ShapesYoung children learn through their senses, and they learn best by doing. When children are learning to read, it is helpful to recognize letters and be able to tell the difference between them. Younger children will start by learning the difference between shapes. One way to help children do this is by moving their arms and bodies into shapes and letters. While doing this, you can also talk about the differences between shapes, or sounds, in the case of letters.

Who Was Steve Jobs? By Pamela Pollack (Part of the Who Was/Who is… series)

Cover image for Who was Steve Jobs?I really enjoyed this simple but very fascinating biography of Steve Jobs. It included lots of information about his life that I had not known. It is amazing to think about how much he changed our lives with the things he invented.
