Dance Me a Story

with dance teacher Lisa Oster

Once a month here at the MFL!

"Each class starts in a circle with a warm-up and gross-motor skills around the room. I use dance terms throughout the class (plié, releve, passé, chasse). I also incorporate a bit of yoga in the warm up. Then each class features a story with movement and accompanying music. Class ends with Freeze dance into a cool down. Past books include: Giraffes Can't Dance, Going On A Ghost Hunt, The Nutcracker, The Mice and The Elephants."

 
Parents stay in the room, but must keep conversations to minimum. Parents may join in if it helps their child but in general the kids participate on their own.
 
Registration is required as spots are limited to 25! Register below. For ages 2-6.

The Library was selected for an exciting new program called the Block Party Project!  The Block Party is a workshop format to engage parents in block play with their children. Children are born learners, but they need experiences to be stimulating, fun, and interactive.  Parents can guide children’s early learning experiences and use blocks as the tools to support their development.  Playing with blocks can provide experiences where children learn math and science, new words and pre-reading skills, social skills, creativity, physical skills, and problem-solving skills.

Block play is fun for both children and adults. For more information about the Block Party program, call the library at 610-623-0239 ext 304 or visit: www.lplcysd.blogspot.com

Large groups, please call to schedule a date for your Block Party!
