It’s time to get on your feet and start moving! Did you know that one of the best ways to help prepare young children to read is through movement and play? Join Jefferson County Public Library for a special program Movin’ and Groovin’ featuring renowned author and physical activity specialist, Rae Pica, on Wednesday, October 14 at 6:30 p.m. at the Lakewood Cultural Center and learn what you can do as a parent, teacher, or caregiver to make moving and playing part of your reading activities. The event is FREE, but you should reserve your seat in advance. This workshop is designed to help us better understand the relationship between physical activity and the brain; the value of play; and how to use movement, play and active learning to nurture a child’s ability to learn to read and think. Rae is the author of 17 books, including Experiences in Movement, Great Games for Young Children, Jump into Literacy, and A Running Start: How Play, Physical Activity, and Free Time Create a Successful Child. The Lakewood Cultural Center is at 470 South Allison Pkwy., Lakewood.
