Early Literacy Library & Lab
Using the resources of the children’s library founded in 2001, students in child development can participate in a lab class to gain knowledge of high quality children’s literature and authors as well as experience in developing pre-literacy and early learning skills for preschool children. The library contains 2500 children’s books, cds, teacher resource books, parenting books, puppets, flannel stories and props to assist students in developing lesson plans and activities for classes and workplace sites. Students will have opportunities to create developmentally appropriate activities in language arts, creative arts, math and science, music, dramatic play and social studies under the supervision of a trained literacy professional.
