A Joyous Way to Learn! A Teacher Workshop Presented by Jim Gill
This lively session incorporates Jim Gill's most recent songs as well as in-depth discussion connecting music play with school readiness, literacy development and early math development.
Early childhood professionals will leave the session inspired to share a new repertoire of songs and playful literacy activities with the children they care for. Even more, they will leave the session understanding that what is most challenging about working in early childhood is also what makes the profession so exciting. When we define our teaching as helping children learn, we not only provide joyous challenges for the children. We also keep ourselves engaged and rejuvenated by watching their excitement as they learn.
Saturday, May 8 at 10:00 a.m. Register. (Registration opens Saturday, April 17)
As part of Fairfax County Public Library's commitment to the academic success of teachers and children in Fairfax County, the library offers a special library card called the Educator Library Card to all preschool through post-secondary public and private school teachers, as well as homeschool parents and guardians teaching in Fairfax County or the City of Fairfax.
With an Educator Library Card, educators can keep books for six weeks and borrow up to 30 items. Late, damaged or lost fees do apply and the card expires annually. Educators may renew if the account is free of fines and overdue materials.
How do you get an Educator Library Card? Bring to any branch proof of your address and educator status. Proof of educator status includes official school identification, homeschool certification or preschool verification.
If you have any questions, please send an email to LibEarlyLiteracy@fairfaxcounty.gov.
Lifelong education and learning is among the County's key strategic focus areas and Fairfax County Public Library offers online resources for continuing education and enjoyment. Most sites require a library card for use outside the library.
