Library Center

This is a combination reading, puzzle, and games center.  It provides a place for quiet individual play or group activity.

Use the Center:

  • When reading to kids, be certain to engage them by reading the story in an expressive way—use facial expression and voice inflection. 
  • Be sure to show the pictures, and encourage the children to find and point out objects on the pages.
  • After you are finished, ask kids to retell the story in their own words.
  • When playing games, encourage the kids to take turns, and teach about sharing.

Clean Up: Have the children put the books, puzzles, and games away on the shelves as they found them.  Put puzzles together before putting them away.
