Passive Programming

I’ve come up with a few different Passive Programs for children at the library this past April.

We rotate play and learn kits and right now our kit is career themed, with lots of dress up options and career centered games. With this theme in mind, I created a display where children can color a “person” as their dream job, and then fill in the “When I grow up” sheet. So far, we have lots of Police Officers and Moms. Of course, I took a picture very shortly after we started the program. We have lots more people on our wall today!

April is also National Poetry Month, so I created a display in the Teen Area for blackout poetry. If you aren’t aware, blackout poetry looks something like this or this. Unfortunately my blackout poetry didn’t look nearly as cool, and neither did the teen’s, but they tried! And hopefully it got them thinking about poetry.

Finally, during Earth Week I created an Earth Yoga Sequence. I was not around that week, but I hope it went well! It was fun to create, and I hope to use yoga in storytimes and programs in the future.
