Raabe, Kim Privler It's Jammie Time! Life Skills- Other,
Literature- Other,
At Mama Pajama’s Playhouse, our motto is “Rest Time Is The Best Time!” We believe that daily transitional time from the busyness of work and play is necessary for our bodies and minds to rest, recharge, and re-energize so that we can be our very best in the lives we lead. We use our live, interactive music and story shows, as well as our online concerts and story times to encourage and reinforce positive rest time perceptions to our audiences in a fun and entertaining way. This particular show is available in three formats - music only (entertainment-based), music only (entertainment + education), or as a story show, which uses both music and storytelling (entertainment = education). This show is primarily intended for children age 3-7, and of course their parents!

Media- Other
The Excuse Me! Let Me Speak workshop is divided up into two six week sessions. Children learn how to effectively communicate with teachers, students, and adults. The workshop will build the child’s confidence as it helps to develop his or her listening skills. The program utilizes poetry, art, music, role-play, interviewing techniques, film and photography to help children build their self-esteem and self-confidence. Each child will learn how to evaluate others, offer and receive constructive feedback, do research, how to speak impromptu, and so much more. We have not done the program yet at a library but we have tested it at the Centennial Elementary School in Roosevelt NY as part of a mentorship program.

Umans, Jackie 15 Ways to Zap a Bully! Life Skills- Parenting
Knowing what to do with a bully is always easier than knowing how to do it. My program shows kids (ages 5-11) how to deflect bullying in ways that take all the fun out of it for the bully. With parents in attendance for kids younger than 9, I solicit young volunteers to help me demonstrate a not very good way to handle a bully vs. a much better way. Kids never feel embarrassed to participate because I always let them take the winning role. At the end I explain the 5 W's of reporting a bully: who, what, when, where, and WITNESSES!
