New Sensory Programming
Young children attending story times at the Brighton District Library are engaged in a new type of learning called sensory play. Sensory play allows children an opportunity to investigate what lies before them by grabbing, exploring, smelling, listening, tasting, and seeing when they use their five senses.
Library Partners with Portal Paranormal Society for Ghost Hunting Program!
A great deal of learning occurs when children are engaged in sensory play. Benefits include: cognitive development, social skills, sense of self, physical skills, emotional skills, and communications skills.
The Library uses colorful sensory bins to engage children in their sensory play. Bins can consist of a base of sand, foam, colorful rice, water beads, shaving cream, and cotton balls, among others items. Then, manipulatives like funnels, shovels, toys, measuring cups, numbers, letters, colorful beads, and more are added. What emerges is a bustling center of discovery and creativity that encourages developmental growth by using science, math, fine motor skills, new language, and creative play.
Registration for the next session of story times begins Monday, Oct. 31 for new participants, and Wednesday, Nov. 2 for returning participants. See here for more information, or contact the Youth Services Desk, 810-229-6571, ext 223.
Join us at the Historic Howell Theater Friday, October 28, 9-11pm and get a taste for paranormal investigation with Southeastern Michigan based Portal Paranormal Society.
