The Toronto Public Library hosts many free classes for early learners to participate in. There are a wide variety of ‘Ready for Reading’ programs geared towards babies, preschool, families etc. The librarian runs a session filled with engaging rhymes, songs, finger stories, picture books, puppets and more! In addition, the librarian explains the purpose of reading and singing to your child as it connects to their development. As a teacher, I was so happy to hear the message we give to parents echoed in the librarian’s session.
We hope this post provides a reminder to encourage the families you work with to connect with their public libraries and for you to hopefully bring your students to the library when possible!
Check out what programming is offered in your community and share these fabulous resource with your families!
