May 7th storytime: cats, cats, cats!

We got our meows on at story time this week, as we read stories and sang songs about cats. Our early literacy skill of the day was vocabulary.

Songs and fingerplays: (see song page for more information)

#1: I told the adults about the early skill vocabulary, which means knowing the names of things, having words to describe things, and knowing that there are various words for the same object

#2: adding activities or songs that mesh well with a book will increase your child’s enjoyment and retention of the new vocabulary

#3: learning about concepts such as opposites can be a great way to help children develop vocabulary about things that are real but can’t be seen (includes concepts such as opposites)

We had a good time snoring at the library!
