This workshop is designed for early learning professionals who work with Pre-Schoolers and Pre-Kindergarteners. Participants will: identify ways to integrate math and science into storytime; discover ways to develop learning experiences that enhance a child’s innate sense of wonder; and learn about storytime resources available from Sno-Isle Libraries.
