As children learn to read, they use many of the skills we practice in storytime. One of these skills is phonological awareness, which is the ability to play with parts of words. An easy and enjoyable way for children to practice this skill is by listening to and singing songs. So sing with your children, even if you don’t have perfect pitch! In songs, each syllable has a different note, so children are hearing words being broken down into parts. These are some of the artists you may hear in storytime: Wiggleworms, Jim Gill, Miss Carole, Laurie Berkner, Raffi, and more!
