L is for Ladybug!

Boy do I LOVE these Story Time boys! L for LADYBUG today at the LIBRARY. We came up with LOTS of L words, did some tracing and drawing, then read the books "The Grouchy Ladybug" by Eric Carle, "The Very Lazy Ladybug" by Isobel Finn, and "The Bug Guy" by Bob Reese. As we read our books, one of our friends shared some LICORICE too! So nice! We finished up with making some of the cutest, grouchy LADYBUGS I've ever seen. Trying to get these sweet boys to make grouchy faces was the biggest job of the day. So funny! Made my day!
 




 

***Book Club***

Our next Endicott Library Book Club will be held:
Thursday, December 18 @ 7:00 PM
 
We will be discussing the book:
"Tree Soldier" by J. L. Oakley
 

In the darkest of times, good intentions go awry. One mistake can ruin a life. One mistake can transform it.

A government forestry camp set deep in the mountainous forests of the Pacific Northwest might not seem the likely place to find redemption, but in 1935, Park Hardesty hopes for just that.

Blaming himself for the fiery accident that caused his brother's disfigurement and the death of the bootlegging woman he loved, planting trees, building bridges and mentoring tough, homesick New Jersey boys brings him both penitence and the renewal of his own self-worth. When he wins the love of Kate Alford, a local naturalist who envisions joining the Forest Service, which allows only men, he also captures the ire of a camp officer who refuses to let her go.

Just when he is ready to seek his brother's forgiveness, he is falsely accused of rape. Every aspect of his life he has tried to rebuild is put in jeopardy. In the end, the only way he can defend himself is to tell the truth about his brother, but he risks being kicked out of the camp. Worse, he could lose Kate's love forever.

K is for King!

We always have so much fun at Story Time. Today was a little more of a mellow Story Time day, but fun none the less. "K" was the letter of the day. We worked on writing our letters, making K sounds, and coming up with words that start with the letter K. Then we read the books "A Pie Went By" by Carolyn Dunn, "King Snozzle of the Snozz" by Mike Reiss, and "I'm the King of the Castle!" by Shigeo Watanabe. Then we personally decorated our own King (and queen) crowns.

J is for Jet!

J is for Jet....and a whole bunch of other words! I was amazed at the number of words my Story Time friends could come up with that started with the letter J! Today we started by working on our letters and then we read the books "My Friend Rabbit" by Eric Rohmann, "Flight 1-2-3" by Maria van Lieshout, and "A Plane Goes Ka-ZOOM!" by Jonathon London. Then the kiddos chose a favorite color of paper, colored it, and we learned how to fold the paper into our own jet/airplane! We did a little flight practice around the library, had a contest to see who could fly the farthest, and then did some target landing practice. The library was soaring with energy! ;)

I is for ICKY!!!

Happy Halloween!!! 
 Today at Story Time we worked on the letter "I" and talked about the sounds the "I" makes and listed things that we think are ICKY! We sang a few songs and read the books "There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Bat!" by Lucille Colandro, "The 13 Nights of Halloween" by Guy Vasilovich, and "Inside a House That Is Haunted" by Alyssa Satin Capucilli. Then we made some crazy-legged, ICKY spiders! So fun for Halloween!
