Story Time with GCCSA

Listening to stories read aloud introduces new worlds to early learners – worlds of unique words, sounds and illustrations. Children will listen to a story, hear the words, see the pictures, and process them.

GCCSA’s Head Start/Early Head Start educators are bringing our classroom story time to the GCCSA Community. Each month, a different reader will share beautifully written and illustrated stories from around the world; stories that are reflected in the rich backgrounds of our children.

Please join us each month via virtual link or watch back via YouTube.
