STORYTIMES

During storytime, we read fun stories, utilize fingerplays, rhyme, and sing songs that will help your child begin the journey of being a lifelong reader as well as develop pre-literacy skills. Pre-literacy skills are the things children know about reading and words before they can read, such as letter shapes and sounds.  Scholastic explains it well in this articleWe also have crafts!

Curious Kids Club: A S.T.E.A.M. Program

Thursday, March 7th at 4:00 p.m.

Curious kids is a new monthly STEAM program where we will explore different STEAM related activities. We will meet on the 1st and 2nd Thursday of the month in the Co-Lab. On the 1st Thursday of the month, we could be programming with Bee Bots or using engineering skills to take on Lego Challenges. Each month will be a different activity. The 2nd Thursday of the month will be free building time. Kids will explore their creativity by building with recycled materials. Kids grades K-3.
