OPL Albert Einsteins

The Ossining Public Library sent 2 teams to the Westchester County Battle of the Books on Saturday, October 18th, which was held at the Scarsdale Middle School. The 4th-6th grade team (The Albert Einsteins) went to the semi-final round before being defeated, and the 6th-9th grade team (The Erudites) won the competition in their age group, taking home the trophy for the Ossining Public Library. Public libraries from all over the county participated. We are so proud of all our kids! Everyone worked really hard, and all the participants had a great time!

We’ve got lots of great books about trucks

At our last Ready, Set, Kindergarten! we read books, sang songs, and had lots of fun with trucks. All the kids also got to make a truck out of shapes.

A Pizza Storytime!

October 7, 2014

Everyone loves pizza! And everyone at Ready, Set,  Kindergarten! today loved our pizza-themed storytime.

Some of our books about pizza

We read some fun stories, sang “I Am a Pizza,” acted out a pizza story, and all shared a “pizza.” After the songs and stories, all the kids made their own pizzas.

Mmmmm, pizza!

If you are, write your name on an apple and add it to our apple bushel in the Children’s Room. There’s still lots of room left!

Family fun in storytime!

September 27, 2014

Today in Family Storytime we went to the farm. Or at least we pretended to. We read some fun books about farms and farm animals, made lots of noise (farm animal noise, of course!), did the chicken dance, and made our own barns.

This is what the outside looks like.

And the inside!

It’s apple time!

This week in Ready, Set, Kindergarten! we celebrated apples. We read stories about apples, apple trees, and apple pie!

Some books about apples

We also heard the story of the  mouse and the apple, and we enjoyed some fun rhymes.

Before they left, all the kids made their own apple.

Mmmm, it was delicious!
