Heritage Storytime Episode 3: Let’s Play Together!/¡Juguemos Junto! – Feb 11

Posted by Global Philadelphia Association on February 9, 2021

What is Heritage Storytime?

Heritage Storytime (HS) is a series of monthly storytime episodes presented virtually for children. Each HS episode will focus on a heritage-related theme and will feature a children’s book read-along as well as complementary learning materials and activities. HS nurtures our desire to tell stories about our lives and heritages, past and present, and to learn through these stories. HS is especially important now due to the constraints that COVID-19 has imposed on teachers and families.

Let’s Play Together!/¡Juguemos Junto! 

Join us for a special bilingual episode of Heritage Storytime, presented in Spanish and English! We’ll hear Tania Ramos Otón from Esperanza read the book Slide! ¡Deslízate!…and she will get us up and MOVING AROUND with some fun movement activities! We’ll also learn how everyone plays – past and present and all around the world – and we’ll visit Smith Memorial Playground, a historic and welcoming playground here in Philly. We’ll learn how we can play outside or at home, any time of year, even during the pandemic. Additional teaching resources and ideas for exploring the episode’s themes will be included, too.

Date and Time: February 11, 2021, 1:00-1:40 PM

Audience: Children in grades K-3, families, teachers
*This episode would be great for Spanish speakers and those learning Spanish
