What's Happening

Fall is my favorite season! Color, apples, cider, pumpkin flavored everything! It's amazing. Of course with these first peeks of fall color we are going to have a fall storytime! We will also be bringing out the scarves today and doing fun songs. 

Early Literacy Tip of the Week: It's beautiful outside this time of year. Go on a nature walk. There are many literacy activities to incorporate into a nature walk! Find outside objects for each letter of the alphabet. Make letters out of items from nature. Do a scavenger hunt.

Today we are having a Tiger storytime! We have to really fun tiger stories. Instead of a bear hunt, we will be going on a tiger hunt! (Going on a bear hunt preschool song)

Literacy tip of the Week: Tell your kiddos and show them how much you also enjoy reading stories! Your enthusiasm will be contagious:-) Using funny voices in the story or doing a related activity afterward, such as "Going on a Bear(or Tiger) Hunt" show kids how reading can be REALLY fun.

We have an amazing new item available for checkout at our library! Wonderbooks, an all-in-one kids audio. We have picture books and short chapter books.

Audio versions of short chapter books are a great tool for kids with a reading level that doesn't match their interest level. Wonderbooks provide a bridge for kids to see the written words and follow along in the story with audio. Also awesome for reluctant readers, ADHD, dyslexia, and other learning challenges.

Today is Orville Wright's Birthday!

In honor of Mr. Wright, we will be reading airplane stories, looking at the first airplanes built and flying our own rocket ships!

Literacy Tip of the Week: Just like adults, kiddos like to read what they are interested in. . . a great way to get your kiddo to read for fun is reading what interests them! Airplanes, Pokemon, dragons, dogs, whatever it may be.

It's the anniversary of the first Model T built by Henry Ford's Company! I personally love cars, right after books of course! Model T's are the coolest, however, the first thing my mom brain thinks of when I see a Model T is how LONG trips would take when your top speed is 45mph. Also, the maintainance. First generation of anything always has bugs and extra maintenance until the kinks are worked out. 

At today's storytime we will look at the Model T's, follow a very inventive little boy and go on a long road trip.
