Play K: Friday Already?
Updated: Aug 4
Welcome to our last day of summertime Play K. I am so very glad you decided to join us:)
Our program is designed to provide opportunity for our young friends to practice some of the skills they will use when starting Kindergarten: read, write, listen, speak & most of all, PLAY!
It is our hope that children will find a comfortable space to engage in the program, one where they can easily move around & make a noisy mess. And since were are meeting in virtual space, we have divided the program into 3 sections so that children do not have to sit captive for 30+ minutes---feel free to stop the video for a snacks, bathroom breaks or work on one of the independent activities...then come back when ready. So turn on your brain-bulbs & let's get ready to play!
Today during Circle Time, we investigate a little teapot, meet a Giant Lion & sing the Days of the Week song.
Alice the Camel joins us for a very special story about kindness.
We will investigate the Mystery Box & learn how to roll coils from clay during Journal Time.
During Movement Time, we will Shake our Silllies Out. If you listen carefully, you might hear Ms. Annie's Parakeet singing along.
I hope you had some rumpity-bumpity fun this week during Play K. I am glad to have spent time with new & old friends, sharing some laughs & thinking about ways to strengthen our bodies & our minds. Maybe we will see ya around the library some day soon!
"Play is the work of childhood" Special thanks to our friends at Positive Steps Therapy for being a true community resource---we had so much fun collaborating to bring strategies, support & enrichment to families through this special session of Play K.

Three cheers for Ms. Suzy from the Hampton Community Library for her dedication to find innovative ways to link the community with resources & programs while we practice social distancing.
