>The Shoreline Family Support Center was also a recipient of the Page Ahead grant, and last week our Play & Learn facilitators came up with lots of fun and creative ways to get kids thinking about literacy and having fun with books. Monday – Friday Play & Learn groups became a pajama party, complete with kids of all sizes in their favorite pajamas, treats for snack, reading time with caregivers, and lots of games and activities incorporating letters and words.

Letters floating in the sensory table provided a slippery and tactile way to play with the alphabet.

Large, brightly colored magnetic letters attracted a lot of attention and creativity.

Don’t forget to get your whole body involved! Alphabet hopscotch was a bit hit.

Pajama Party week brings the whole team together – our SFSC Manager Tanya helps out with the book giveaway, as each child gets to choose a brand new book to take home.

Reading together is a wonderful way to build imagination and help kids develop a love of books.

The kids at Afterschool Adventures got to join in the fun as well. Book Bingo, pajamas & comfy reading forts, popcorn & hot chocolate, and of course a book to take home!

Getting cozy with books…

A big thank you to Page Ahead for all the great books!
