Wee Be Jammin' Using Music to Promote Early Childhood Literacy in the Library http://bit.ly/1dR0f8x

Let's start at the very beginning.

Why do we care about music? Amy Holcomb, Northbrook Public Library, IL

The theory behind the music. Maggie Masterson, Fremont Public Library, IL ● What is Music? ● Musical Storytelling and child development ● Early literacy ● Bridging to school

Babies A common interaction between parent and child is singing and bouncing a baby on your knee. The child is assimilating the tune, and feeling the beat physically. That bouncing is growing the neurons in the baby's brain to help him become tuneful, beat-ful, and artful. -John Feierabend, University of Hartford

Music for the babes. Amy Holcomb, Northbrook Public Library, IL

Baby Bounce and Baby Jam

Funesies with Onesies

Toddlers Music plays a major role in the lives of young children. They are attracted to music and can use their entire bodies to make musical sounds- singing, whistling, clapping, stamping feet and tapping toes. -"Books to Sing." Nexpeca. Book Links, 2005

Marketing Movement Julie Jurgens, Arlington Heights Public Library, IL ● Mini Movers Toddler time to the extreme!

Preschoolers Children who play with sounds in their preschool years are better prepared to read when they get to school. Reading specialists use the term "phonological awareness" to describe an early literacy skill that involves the ability to hear and manipulate small sounds in words. -"Sound Advice." Arnold and Coburn. SLJ, 2005

Using Music in Storytime Parry Rigney, Park Ridge Public Library, IL ● Incorporate music into your traditional preschool and family storytimes. ● Music is perfect for opening, closing, transitions - really, any time! ● Present songs that are simple and participatory. ● No musical experience necessary!

Make it something special. Lora Van Marel, Orland Park Public Library, IL ● Music Makers ○ 2-3 year olds w/caregiver ○ Music, even through books ○ It's all in the marketing ○ Crazy chaotic fun!
