AAARRRRR you ready to read.... GREAT BOOKS?

Children & adults enjoyed the Preschool Pirate theme! We read Shiver Me Letters: a pirate ABC by June Sobel, we did the Pirate Pokey, went on a TREASURE hunt and found two treasure chests (lucky for us we found READ tattoos)! Adults helped assemble our pirate swords and of course, we had to make a pirate hat! Everyone left as a PIRATE!


Two separate programs with the same result.... SAND ART! Children chose from a variety of images, then they peeled the sticker, and colored with sand! Children enjoyed playing with sand out of the SUN!

Listen to your Summer Reading book- 2nd Grade

Preschool Penguins

This week we had a Penguin theme. First, we shared stories: Sergio Makes a Splash by Edel Rodriguez & If you were a Penguin by Wendell Minor. Then we learned a new Penguin rhyme, which goes like this: 1 baby penguin makes a wish, 2 baby penguins catch a fish, 3 baby penguins slip and slide, 4 baby penguins run and hide, 5 baby penguins look around calling, " Mama, Mama, Mama!" Now they are found! Finally, we went home with our very own Penguin Pal!
If you'd like to see more photos from this or another program look for Woodbridge Public Library on Facebook!
