What did you put in YOUR pocket?

Today we had lots of fun reading about pockets in Ready, Set, Kindergarten!

So many books about pockets!

We also played a guessing game and made letter shapes with our whole bodies. The letter K was especially hard!

Everyone made a pocket to take home. To see all the photos click here.

One for me, one for mom, and one for my baby.

I cut up lots of little pieces of paper!

Join us next week for stories about Thanksgiving. It will be our last program for the fall. We’ll resume on January 6.

A very noisy storytime

Silly and serious books about animal sounds

Today in Ready, Set, Kindergarten! we had lots of fun with animal sounds. Some of our books were silly and some weren’t, but all were fun. We also sang some songs and pretended to be different animals.

Everyone made animal finger puppets. There’ll be lots of animal sounds in lots of homes tonight!

So much animal fun!

Finger-puppet hands!

Candy Couture at Crafternoons!

For our last Crafternoon of the year we made candy accessories using colorful (and yummy) candy.  Our crafters got creative cutting up and pulling apart Twizzlers to use as beads and string.

We made one of a kind bracelets you’ll only find at Ossining Public Library.

A very bubbly storytime

Bath books

What fun we had today in Family Storytime. All our books were about bathtime. Some were cute and some were very silly. We also heard the story of Little Monster’s Bath (and some of us got pretty wet!).

Little Monster’s friends made quite a splash!

We popped bubbles and listened to Rubber Duckie, too.

Everyone decorated their own bathtub (with a rubber duckie). To see all the photos, click here.

Do we love shoes? Goodness, yes!

We had so much fun this week in Ready, Set, Kindergarten! reading, singing and more. Our theme this week was shoes, and we had lots of fun talking about what kinds of shoes we were all wearing, and how many different kinds of shoes there are.

All the kids also made their own pair of shoes. Some of them where white, like Pete’s at the beginning of the book. Others were all different colors.

Next week we’ll be reading books and more about animal sounds.

Boo! It’s Almost Halloween!

Halloween books

Today in Ready, Set, Kindergarten! we howled, yowled, and booed our way through storytime. We read some not-too-scary books, sang “The Witch in the Night,” (to the tune of “Wheels on the Bus”), popped bubbles to “The Monster Mash,” and heard the story of the Little Witch and the Orange House.

The surprise inside the Little Orange House

Then all the kids made a ghost to take home.
