Fiddle Stix Kids

We are happy to partner with PPS to enhance learning through our Books Alive & Rock-It Science programs.

Albert Einstein once said: “Education is not the learning of facts, but the training of the mind to think.” Our goal at Fiddlestix Kids Learning is to create these “thinking” opportunities for children by providing literacy and science classes that are interactive, meaningful and fun!


What is Books Alive?

Books Alive is an early literacy program that fosters the development of “THE BIG SIX EARLY LITERACY SKILLS” by bringing BOOKS to LIFE through INTERACTIVE storytelling, puppets, character dress up, flannel board stories, prop stories and music/movement activities! According to the National Institute for Literacy, development of “The Big Six Early Literacy Skills” has a clear and consistently strong relationship to future school success! The Big Six Early Literacy Skills include: vocabulary, print motivation, print awareness, narrative skills, letter knowledge and phonological awareness. Books Alive also develops listening skills, memory/recall, self-confidence and most importantly a feeling that READING IS FUN!

What is Rock-It Science?

Rock-It Science provides programs that bring SCIENCE to LIFE through AGE APPROPRIATE, INTERACTIVE and HANDS ON activities!  These activities are designed to engage, educate and entertain budding scientists!  

Rock-It Science:

  • Introduces scientific concepts, vocabulary, equipment & materials

  • Encourages children to ask questions and seek answers as they explore the world around them

  • Fosters scientific thinking & problem solving skills

  • Reinforces mathematical skills (number/shape/color recognition, counting, measuring, patterns, comparing, matching, sequencing/ordering, sorting/classifying, etc.)
