Tunica-Biloxi offers 'Story Time' Saturday
The Tunica-Biloxi Tribe of Louisiana’s LCRP will continue its “Story Time” series, featuring popular children’s books on Saturday, Nov. 5. The free and open-to-the-public event introduces practices for building early literacy skills that are essential for children entering school. Traditional Tunica-Biloxi stories and songs are integrated into the “Story Time” program. “Story Time” is offered for children 7 years old and under from 11 – 11:45 a.m. in the CERC Library; children must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
“Story Time” offers engaging activities highlighting the Tunica-Biloxi culture, including bilingual songs, popular children’s books, finger-play and free-play with puppets and props, rhymes, dances, games, crafts and more. Hosted by LCRP language and cultural lifeways instructors Donna Pierite and Elisabeth Mora, “Story Time” features activities based on standards from Every Child Ready to Read (ECRR), a curriculum adopted by the American Library Association to support parents and caregivers with early literacy development of children. “Story Time” is funded in part by a grant from the Institute for Museum & Library Services.
