How are you doing this week?
I know it’s a crazy time in the word right now – I imagine that when you start thinking about this coming school year you might be getting filled with stress and tension… (I can relate!)
Whatever your situation – attending school or homeschooling, teaching on site or virtually,
I want to be a source of help and support for you!
So here’s what I’ve got going on for you for the rest of 2020 – and beyond!
My Tuesday videos will keep coming ! Next week will be Part 4, the last video of our circle time series, but I’ve got plenty more planned for you – music and movement for learning that can be used at home or in the classroom.
If you’re looking for some sort of virtual learning or program to do from home,
I will be continuing with Tunes & Tales throughout the school year.
It started as a way to connect and have some structure during the initial shelter-in-place, and it’s turned out to be a great source of joy, fun and community throughout this time.
It’s an inclusive program – we have toddler and preschool children as well as special needs participants ranging in age from 7 to 51 years!
We’d be ecstatic to have you (and your friends?!) join us online for our Monday, Wednesday and Friday program. Feel free to email me for more information or visit http://mymissnina.com/tunes-tales
And we’re continuing on with our Facebook/Youtube Lives on Wednesdays!
It’s always free to join us! This is our summer schedule, and if I update it for the Fall – I will keep you posted.
And now – let’s get to this week’s video –
it’s PART 3 of my Preschool Circle Time Series:
Today we have: two story time transition songs, and we read two stories together – Don’t Let The Pigeon Drive The Bus by Mo Willems & Little Owl Lost by Chris Haughton – while I demonstrate my #1 tool for getting and keeping children’s attention during circle time: PARTICIPATION!
By “participation” I mean guided, interactive participation. Getting children to physically participate by doing a movement associated with/in response to the story, or to vocally participate – or both! – gets there attention and keeps them present as they await their next opportunity to participate. And giving them specific guidance on HOW to participate keeps your circle time under control!
