StoryWalk® Founder Presents Innovative Program that Combines Walking and Reading Outdoors
If you work with children or families, learn how to host this fun, yet educational, initiative that places a children’s storybook along a popular walking route in your community. The creator, Anne Ferguson, will share how she selects a children’s book and prepares it in order to present it at regular intervals along popular paths so readers can follow the story as they walk. Conceived as a way to inspire parents, teachers, and caregivers to take young children out of doors to learn, StoryWalk® helps build children’s interest in reading while encouraging healthy outdoor activity for both adults and children.
This FREE program is great for librarians, educators, family program coordinators, and others within the community who are interested in promoting literacy, fitness, and fun family programs.
Date: October 11th, Thursday
Time: 10:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.
The StoryWalk® Workshop is sponsored by the ECRC@FPL, which is a state grant awarded to the Falmouth Public Library by the Massachusetts Department of Early Education & Care and serves those throughout the region who educate and care for children.
