A Joyous Way to Learn: Music Play to Promote Readiness, Literacy, Development and Inclusion - La Vista 

In this energizing session, Jim will share examples of his work- both books and songs- that teachers, librarians, and care providers can bring back to their class rooms, libraries, playrooms and family rooms. Most importantly, Jim will discuss how his unique creations in music play inspire young children not only to move, but to regulate their movements...not only to sing, but to make connections between the words they sing and the printed word and the world of numbers. Jim will discuss how a play-based program provides an inclusive environment for children with special needs and share thoughts based on his work with children of all ability levels. Professionals will leave the session inspired to share a new repertoire of songs and playful literacy activities with the children that they are for. Even more, they will leave the session understanding that what is most challenging about the nature of early childhood education 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. CE credits from NLC available for those enrolled in the Public Librarian Certification Program
