Are you looking for a quick refresher in the five early literacy practices? Do you have staff who could use an introduction to the concepts and parent messages in Every Child Ready to Read® @ your library® 2nd edition? Or, perhaps, you have parents and caregivers at your library with whom you’d like to share a brief video or two of real families–every age, shape, color, etc.–doing fun early literacy activities?
You are in luck, because Baltimore County Public Library created a suite of 6 videos that do just that! The first video in the set, embedded below, provides an introduction to the five practices, with the remaining videos each tackling a practice more in depth. But rest assured–the longest of the videos only clocks in at 3:20. It would take you under 17 minutes to watch them all–a brief investment for a great overview of the five practices.
So bookmark these videos if you can’t watch or share them now, because they’re worth coming back to–even if it’s just to give yourself a reminder of parent messages to share in storytime.
Thanks, Baltimore County Public Library, for creating such a great, accessible resource!
