Baby Sign Time- Monday's at 9:30am. 宝宝手势时间－周一9:30am
We need volunteers to help with this class! If you are available Monday mornings, please contact Lauren and let us know if you can join. All that is needed to participate is a willingness to hold the children on your lap and engage them as the video and leader direct. We need a one-to-one volunteer to baby ratio for this class, so the more volunteers, the more babies that can participate!
Music Time- Thursday's at 9:30 音乐课－周四9:30am
Through percussion, parachute, and dress-up play, we aim to help the babies develop their cognitive, motor, and social skills; expand their imaginations; and build a lifelong love of music.
ANIMAL ASSISTED THERAPY
We are excited to introduce SHH’s newest volunteer-led class, Animal Assisted Therapy! This class is being led by Sara Min and is happening once a month on Saturday from 9-10am. So for all of you who have always wanted to join a class, but are not available during the week, here is you chance to get involved! If you are interested to join, please let me know and I will get you signed up and connected.
Animal Assisted Therapy is used to help SHH kids learn skills such as patience, fine motor skills, and verbalization. Also some children get adopted into homes where there are pets so this will help to lessen their anxiety at that time.
During this class we will use any of the following animals: cats, rabbits, and dogs. We already have the animals so if you are interested in helping we don’t need you to bring any animals:)
Toddler Class 幼儿课程-Tuesday and Friday afternoons at 2:30PM, Wednesday morning at 9:30AM. 幼儿课－周二和周五下午2:30pm，周三上午9:30am
Melissa has been doing a great job with our older children at SHH having a weekly “class” time. They are doing crafts, signing songs, and listening to stories. Volunteers are welcome to help the kids interact and support Melissa. Contact Lauren for class times and find one that will suit your schedule. You do not need to come every week in order to be a help.
Art Class- Tuesday's at 9:30am 艺术课－周二9:30am
Art class is going great with Cindy Hu leading every week, and the kids are having a blast. Come on over if you'd like to join in the fun.
