Join us as we adventure through Roald Dahl's Matilda. Each week, Miss Devon will read aloud from the book while we all draw, write, play games, and act out scenes from the story. At the end of the series, we will watch the film version of this beloved children's novel.

This class is for 3rd - 5th graders. Registration is required.

More about the book: "Matilda is a sweet, exceptional young girl, but her parents think she's just a nuisance. She expects school to be different but there she has to face Miss Trunchbull, a kid-hating terror of a headmistress. When Matilda is attacked by the Trunchbull she suddenly discovers she has a remarkable power with which to fight back. It'll take a superhuman genius to give Miss Trunchbull what she deserves and Matilda may be just the one to do it!"

Roald Dahl's Matilda won the Children's Book Award shortly after it was published in 1988, and it has continued to delight audiences ever since.

(The children in our previous session of afterschool book club suggested and unanimously chose this novel for our summer session!)

In this nontraditional Preschool Story Time, books are read to preschoolers who love to read!  Songs, rhymes, fingerplays, and toys are used to help kids learn and love to read.  At the end of story time the kids are invited to put laminated pieces on a scene board and tell everyone their story that they created.  A great way to encourage imagination, creativity, and story-building!

Registration is NOT required. Tuesdays at 1:30pm

(Children learn best through role modeling. Caregivers are asked to be great role models and be attentive and engaged in the story time. Side conversations can take place during free play. Thanks!)

Join us as we adventure through Roald Dahl's Matilda. Each week, Miss Devon will read aloud from the book while we all draw, write, play games, and act out scenes from the story. At the end of the series, we will watch the film version of this beloved children's novel.

This class is for 3rd - 5th graders. Registration is required.

More about the book: "Matilda is a sweet, exceptional young girl, but her parents think she's just a nuisance. She expects school to be different but there she has to face Miss Trunchbull, a kid-hating terror of a headmistress. When Matilda is attacked by the Trunchbull she suddenly discovers she has a remarkable power with which to fight back. It'll take a superhuman genius to give Miss Trunchbull what she deserves and Matilda may be just the one to do it!"

Roald Dahl's Matilda won the Children's Book Award shortly after it was published in 1988, and it has continued to delight audiences ever since.

(The children in our previous session of afterschool book club suggested and unanimously chose this novel for our summer session!)

This week's movie is:  Ice Princess (2005) 99 minutes
17-year-old physics whiz Casey Carlyle is urged by her physics teacher to work on a physics project over the summer for presentation to Harvard. Since Casey is an ice skater she decides on a project that will show the elements of physics applied in competitive figure skating. To better understand the principles she's using, she will have to become her own test subject. She decides that she wants to skate on the Nationals circuit, but has some very tough competition. The more she gets involved she realizes that she must make a choice -- continue skating or go on to Harvard.

A first library experience.

Children and adults will engage in a repetition of rhymes, fingerplays, stories, songs and movement to encourage language and early literacy skills. Play is how children learn best, so the literacy segment of the program is followed by a playgroup. Using age appropriate toys, children and adults can focus on  distraction free time together. We conclude our time together with a circle time of songs and goodbyes.

A great way to start the library habit and meet other young families in our community.
