Hero

Hero was our word of the day. We started with a little singing and tracing of the letters H-E-R-O. Then we read some great Hero books. We read "Hero Cat" by Eileen Spinelli, "Maxi, the Hero" by Debra and Sal Barracca, and "Superdog the Heart of a Hero" by Caralyn Buehner. Then we played some thrilling games of Hero Bingo. So much fun and excellent cooperation from our mini storytime heroes.
 




After School Program - Town Cleanup

Once again...we held my favorite After School Program of the year this week....our annual Town Cleanup day. I love the kids' enthusiasm and willingness to help. I also had a great handful of bigger kid/adult helpers, which really make this project work. Thank you!

Science!

What a great day for a science experiment!  A good size group of kiddos for our Storytime today to talk about SCIENCE!  We started with getting a science experiment set up...as I knew it would take a bit to get the results we were looking for.  We talked about what happens when you add food coloring drops to water.  And then we made guesses as to what was going to happen to our jars and paper towels as we trailed one end of a paper towel from the colored water jars to the empty jar.  I have to tell you...this bunch of kiddos is pretty smart and pretty much figured it out!  Then we had a snack and read the books "Arthur's Science Fair Trouble" by Marc Brown, "Science Fair Day" by Lynn Plourde, "OH NO! (Or How My Science Project Destroyed the World)" by Mac Barnett, and "The Secret Science Project the Almost Ate the School" by Judy Sierra.  After reading we went back to our experiment and sure enough...the water had walked from one jar to the other!  And the two colors (yellow &  blue) mixed together in the once empty jar and made green water!  It was pretty cool!  We also had a nice mom share some cookies that she made and we talked about how cooking/baking is like science too.  Lots of learning going on at the Endicott Library Storytime today.

HaPpY!

Our Storytime word of the day was HAPPY! We sang a couple songs and then traced the letters H-A-P-P-Y. Then we read some really great books. We read "I Have Feelings!" by Jana Novotny Hunter, "Taking a Bath with the Dog and Other Things that Make Me Happy" by Scott Menchin, "Happy Hippo, Angry Duck" by Sandra Boynton, "The Happy Egg" by Ruth Krauss, and "Happy!" by Pharrell Williams. Then we did a little egg-shaking & dancing to the song "Happy" by Pharrell Williams. We finished up by making a list of 5 things that make us happy. <3 Then we spent a little time reading to Chesso...which makes him HaPpY!!!
