The Summer Reading Club is for everyone! Infants to adults may join the fun! Once you have registered for the Summer Reading Club, please be sure to pick up a reading log at your earliest convenience.

Our first event for the Summer Reading Club will be Rhythm Path on Wednesday, May 30th! Here are a few things that Rhythm Path would like everyone to know:

Remember that drums have the potential of being really loud. This will be a facilitated event so we will be making beautiful sounds, not noise. 

Participants will need NOT to wear skirts/dresses that day…because they will have a drum between their legs. No metal hand jewelry like rings, watches, and bracelets either. If they forget, Rhythm Path will be doing hand-checks as they enter the drum circle. The drum and/or jewelry can be damaged while playing with jewelry.

Social Media: Feel free to take video/photos and post on social media. Please tag @RhythmPath in your posts.

What is Little Learners Storytime?

Little Learners Storytime focuses on age appropriate behaviors and skills and aligns learning with the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS). Parents and caregivers will also learn tips that can be used in working with children at home. 


Why should I bring my three to five year old?

Attendance at and participation in story time has many benefits both for children and parents. Children who attend literacy programs are better prepared to start kindergarten ready to read. They gain pre-reading and pre-writing skills that are valuable in readying the child to read such as knowing letter names, developing oral language skills, how to hold a book and learning to read and write from left to right. Children experience social learning in a group setting. They are able to observe how other children act, i.e. sitting and listening, interacting with an adult other than their parent and more.

Children will sing and listen to books just like  always, but they will also be exposed to further educational knowledge and age appropriate developmental opportunities. In Little Learners Storytime, we plan to learn about colors, numbers, letters, pre-writing skills, science, social studies (through holidays, feelings, behavior expectations) and more!
