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!)

Each week, we will feature a different sports-themed movie!  Join us on the second floor for a relaxing and fun way to start your weekend.

This week's movie is:  Happy Feet (2007) 109 minutes
Emperor Penguins from Antarctica each express their true love with a special heartsong of their own that expresses their very being. However, the misfit Mumble cannot sing. Instead he has an extraordinary talent to tap dance with almost magical energy and expression. Nevertheless, the leadership of the colony fearfully blames the young penguin's unorthodox ways for the lean fishing that threatens them all. Defiant in the face of unjust rejection, Mumble and his true friends set out to find the true cause of the famine. Through the friends trials and perils, Mumble learns many things about his frozen world, not the least of which being that his toe tapping talent may be what he needs to save his people.

Our Own Stories

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!)

Growing Old is NOT for Sissies*

 Ove is cranky, rigid, and short-tempered.  He's done with living and is planning on suicide.  But life, in the form of new neighbors, an  old frenemy, and a scrawny cat, keeps upsetting his plans.  How did he get that way, and will he actually be able to carry out his plans?

 "...a fuzzy crowd-pleaser that serves up laughs to accompany a thoughtful reflection on loss and love"  from Publisher's Weekly Review.

 

 

*But it sure beats the alternative.
