Early Childhood Education Class Presents at Library’s Family Reading Night
Children attending Family Reading Night at the Statesboro Regional Library got a special treat recently when Ogeechee Technical College’s Early Childhood Care and Education’s Language Art class presented a special program - ”Chicka Chicka…..BOOM! BOOM!” In this bright and lively rhyming story, the letters of the alphabet race each other to the top of the coconut tree. Following the story, students in the Early Childhood Care and Education program helped children select materials as they created their own puppets.
When asked why her students were performing during Family Reading Night, Mrs. Lisa Cox, Ogeechee Technical College Language Arts instructor stated, “Elaine McDuffie, Head of Youth and Family Services and everyone at the Regional library has a long history of providing our community with wonderful services. I thought that Family Reading Night would be the perfect opportunity for our students to take what they have learned in the classroom and apply it in a real life situation.”
“Collaboration like this can really improve the quality of a program by allowing each contributing partner to do what they do best. Collaborative programming also allows more people to benefit. In this case, the students in the OTC class were able to practice what they have learned in a real life situation, while the children who attended the event enjoyed a fun, well planned story presentation.” commented Elaine McDuffie of the Statesboro Regional Library System.
