Activity time on June 17 required the kids to create a contraption that would protect an egg when dropped from a ladder. They worked in groups and were instructed to design and build a container to hold the egg using a trash bag, tissue, paper cup, string, and tape. When dropped, three out of the four groups succeeded in saving their egg.
Things were quiet on the Tucker farm until that peacock showed up. On Wednesday, June 16, Three Hens and a Peacock by Lester Laminack, was read to the group for Story Time. Afterwards they made beautiful peacocks to take home.
Story time on Monday, June 7, featured I Found a Kitty by Troy Cummings. Lucky Arfy has a home. Scamper doesn’t. Arfy just has to find a furever home for this cute little stray kitten – a quiet home full of laughs, gentle pats, and yarn balls. And bow wow wow, he thinks he knows just the place. A story that is purrfect for cat lovers, dog lovers, and anyone with a heart.
Mrs. Beckman and the second grade visited the library on Wednesday, May 19. They came and listened to a story, Three Hens and Peacock, written by Lester L.Laminack. After the story, they decorated tiles of their favorite book. These tiles will be on display in the Children’s Room at the library. Stop by and check them out. They also got to play with Legos when they were done drawing. It was wonderful to have them in the library.
Activity packets for April are ready to be picked up. We are open from 4 to 7 today, April 12.
Today’s book is waiting to be read.
We have another good book in the library for your child to read and enter in the drawing.
