Curated with Libraries in Mind
During the creation of these packages, we reached out to librarians who were already incorporating Kodo materials in their spaces. Based on first hand reports of their successes and needs, we curated these packages of products. Support materials, guided play experiences, and marketing assets offer a complete educational resource for the library setting.
Why incorporate Kodo Library Packages in to your space?
- - Offer play experiences which support the development of pre-literacy skills and the exploration of STEM concepts
- - Support caregiver interactions which promote the development of foundational pre-literacy and literacy skills
- - Create spaces for investigation that engage 1-12 year-olds
Engage children and caregivers in shared learning experiences!
At Kodo, we believe in children, their competence, and their innate nature to question and learn. Our intentionally curated packages engage children, with the support of their educators and caregivers, in developing a strong foundation of literacy skills through play. Our open-ended, simple, and accessible support materials include prompts, investigations, and questions that scaffold library facilitators and caregivers in creating authentic, literacy rich play experiences for every child.
Encouraging Child + Caregiver Engagement - Simple prompt cards are easily displayed to invite parents and caregivers to engage their children in learning experiences during play. Open-ended questions and related vocabulary encourage the caregiver to take a hands-on approach to support their child’s pre-literacy, STEM, and 21st century skills.
Facilitator Support - Each set of materials includes a Facilitator Guide to support library staff in fostering the engagement of children and their caregivers through open-ended play experiences. Easily accessible language, invitations, and content ensures that the facilitator understands the learning opportunities and how to engage both child and caregiver in skill building through play.
Marketing Support - Each thoughtfully curated package comes with an extensive digital marketing package to ensure your investment in high quality learning materials and learning experiences is communicated to your community.
