When our library buildings closed, Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh librarians hustled to move our in-person storytimes online. We hope that parents and caregivers like you will enjoy our online storytimes and find ways to unlock the learning shared on the screen to bring stoytimes to life for your children.
I’ve written before about the challenges of being your child’s teacher during this pandemic, and today’s post is on the same topic. Because, wow, this is hard.
It’s been weeks since my kids’ schools closed. While adjusting to this new “normal,” I’ve also been trying to figure out how to be a teacher for my first grader and preschooler. Here are some resources I’ve found useful in figuring out how to keep my kids happy and engaged—with schoolwork and other activities—during this time. Hopefully something on here can help you out too.
Elsewhere we’ve shared resources that can help you create your own storytime or read-aloud at home. Now, we’re bringing you a list of great places to watch or stream storytimes from the comfort of your home or from your own device.
