Course Description

Become a certified Stories, Songs, and Stretches!® facilitator! This online training utilizes professional videos, recorded lecture, interactive discussions, and group / individual assignments to provide a distance-learning certification option, without sacrificing the quality of the in-person experience.

Module III: Learn to weave together specific books and songs with movement and stillness components, always connecting everything we do back to the specific early learning skills that Stories, Songs, and Stretches!® is designed to enhance.

Stories, Songs, and Stretches! provides adults with the skills and resources they need to understand and enhance early learning through embodied play. The online training version is made up of three 4-week modules. These modules are for anyone who works with preschool and/or early elementary age kids on a regular basis, or who wants to learn how to use the program with kids and families. This includes teachers, librarians, early childhood educators, social workers, and yoga teachers, among others. Nearly everyone who works with young children can earn continuing education credits when they attend our workshops. All modules must be completed before one can become certified. A break period of two weeks is offered between modules in the series. Registration is available for individual modules at $175 each; register for all three in the series together for just $450 (a savings of $75).

Katie Scherrer

Kate ScherrerKatie Scherrer is a consultant, writer, early childhood education trainer, librarian, yoga teacher, and the founder of Stories, Songs, and Stretches!, a startup devoted to enhancing early learning through embodied play. Katie began working in public libraries in 2005 and quickly discovered that her Spanish-language skills were in great demand. Completely unexpectedly, librarianship became her career and working with Latinx immigrant communities became her passion. At the same time, she discovered the practices of yoga and mindfulness, which slowly transformed her life into one of greater empowerment and less reactivity. Katie has been working as a consultant since 2012, helping libraries and educational organizations increase their inclusion of Latinx communities. She now travels across the country, sharing workshops on mindfulness, inclusion, yoga, and other related topics with librarians, educators, social workers, yoga teachers, and others who serve children and families. Her teaching style is encouraging and warm, while grounded in research and current best practices. Katie is an active member of ALSC (Association for Library Service to Children) and a lifetime member of REFORMA (The National Organization to Promote Library and Information Sciences to Latinos and the Spanish-Speaking). She was a member of the 2013 Pura Belpré book award committee, and has published two books with the American Library Association, Once Upon a Cuento: Bilingual Storytimes in English and Spanish (coauthored with Jamie Campbell Naidoo) and Stories, Songs, and Stretches! Creating Playful Storytimes with Yoga and Movement. Find more at www.connectedcommunitiesconsulting.com and www.storiessongsandstretches.com.
