MonkeyPlay @ Chelsea District Library at McKune Room
May 6 @ 6:30 pm – 7:15 pm

MonkeyPlay creates a multi-sensory environment that encourages children to reason, problem solve, predict, use language, think with imagination, and interact with others, all while engaging in the “joy” of movement. MonkeyPlay incorporates the complexity of social play, from activities like working together to build a blue footed booby nest, to tumble play, like hopping away from the fox into a pretend burrow. We introduce movement-based reading activities to help children develop their reading skills and at the conclusion of every session there are take home activities to continue learning with family.

KinderConcert from the Ann Arbor Symphony @ Chelsea District Library at McKune Room
May 11 @ 12:00 pm – 12:30 pm

Music comes alive in KinderConcerts – free 30-minute concerts designed especially for children 2- to 5-years old. No worries about wiggly tots sitting still for a concert – they’ll dance and move while listening to the music. Then they’ll be mesmerized by hearing a story being told with musical accompaniment. Members of the A2SO join child movement expert Gari Stein and pianist Kathryn Goodson for a guided introduction to the instruments of the orchestra. Parents, grandparents, teachers, and day care leaders can introduce classical music to even the youngest listeners at your local libraries.

In order for all children to participate and have a successful experience, please let us know if your child has any special needs that we can accommodate. Call Jessica at 734-475-8732, ext. 208.
