Finger Plays for Young Children | Treasuring Childhood Film & Lecture Series 2017-2018
October 21 @ 9:00 am - 10:30 am
Join us for a Parent Workshop on Saturday, October 21 from 9:00 to 10:30am. A Teacher Workshop will follow from 12:00 to 3:00pm. Lynn St. Pierre presents Wilma Ellersiek’s work designed for the young child. Her finger plays and movement games include gesture, rhythm, rhyming verse, full body movement and singing in the mood of the fifth. We’ll do a variety of games including loving touch, dancing hands, seasonal plays and delightful movement games. These games demonstrate great wisdom in supporting healthy sensory development. The plays may be woven into the fabric of your family life creating a more harmonious and joyful atmosphere throughout the day and night. We hope you will come for the morning to learn delightful finger plays and movement games that will engage your children in the most wonderful ways!
Lynn St. Pierre is a well know presenter, sharing her work on early childhood developmental movement at conferences, teacher trainings, workshops and parent educational events throughout the world. Lynn is a member of the International Hand Gesture Working Circle, and the founding kindergarten teacher of the Applesong School, a parent collective in Lyons,
