It's construction day in the library. While these kind gentlemen are fixing the library door, we will be listening to stories on construction! We have tools to hunt for in the toolbox and a fun activity with drum sticks.

Literacy Tip of the Week: Grab a non-fiction title for your kiddo! Stories are great, but they are only one component of reading. "Children love facts and information, and while it is vital to teach children to read, it is even more important to help them explore a range of genres for themselves." (Hunt, 2017)

Literacy Tip of the Week: Make sure you read everyday! With summer break starting this week it is especially important to make an extra effort to read every day. Summer shouldn't be a break from learning, make sure your kiddo's skill grow over the summer.
