Story Time and Song Time
In 2015 and 2016, Emily ran the weekly Story Time sessions at her local branch of the State Library. These sessions are a perfect way for busy parents to expose their children to essential language and pre-reading in a fun, engaging environment. Sessions like this are frequently run free of charge at community centres so make sure to ask your child health professional and local families. Show children the joy of language and reading by coming along, singing along and listening to some great, interactive stories!
Here are some images from a recent Story Time. Enjoy!
Welcome to Japan!
Its’ Kodomo no Hi again and Emily spoke to the Prep class at Hagley Primary school about Japan! We sang songs, introduced ourselves, made up our own kanji, looked at healthy food and did some origami.
What It’s Like to Be A Writer
Emily spoke at the Launceston Preparatory School in May on the subject of being a writer. It covers a lot more than just best-selling stories about wizard school!
Public Speaking: Short and Sweet
Emily spoke to leaders and teaching staff at Scotch Oakburn College in May on the subject of public speaking. We discussed how to control your space, engage your audience, use your voice and body to emphasize your message and how to use props to their best advantage – an action-packed afternoon!
Emily presented the National Simultaneous StoryTime event at Westbury Library in May, 2016. The kindergarten class of Westbury Primary School was present along with several parents. The kids wore some awesome hats! We explored all sorts of hats and the professions that wear them. We read four stories on hats, including some of my favourites, The Magic Hat by Mem Fox and Rosie’s Hat by Julia Donaldson. And of course, we did some cool craft, including a pirate hat and a uniquely Australian crown, with a brim to keep us safe from the sunlight!
