If all the raindrops…

April 8, 2014

were lemon drops and gum drops, oh what a rain it would be!

Today in Ready, Set, Kindergarten! we sang songs, read stories, and even acted out some of the stories celebrating rain. We are hoping that April showers really will bring May flowers.

Everyone also made a rainy day picture.

Next week, during the Ossining schools spring break, we will have a special program for preschoolers called All Together Now. It will incorporate the early literacy information we have been sharing during Ready, Set, Kindergarten! but will feature rhymes and songs followed by play. Come and share songs, stories, and imaginative play with your 3-5 year old child next Tuesday from 2 to 2:45.

Vroom! Vroom! Truck Fun!

April 7, 2014

This week’s Saturday Storytime was all about trucks. We read some fun truck books–everyone helped to make truck sounds and to steer–and sang songs, too. All the kids made their own shape truck. Everyone had a lot of fun being creative.

A hooting good time at the library!

March 18, 2014

Today was the last Ready, Set, Kindergarten! of our winter session. We had lots of fun reading books about owls.

We also sang songs, did some rhymes and pretended to be owls, bears, cats, and more. Then everyone made their own owl stick puppet.

We are taking a two-week break between our winter and spring programming sessions. Programs begin again on April 7.

March Madness-Round 2!

March 12, 2014

We made it through Round 1 of March Madness. Here are the results:

The Penderwicks & Artemis Fowl tied and are now up against Madeline, which won over Whales on Stilts.

Knuffle Bunny beat Liar & Spy to face Miss Nelson is Missing, which barely beat Click, Clack, Moo!

Come by and vote for your favorites!

Don’t miss author Chris Grabenstein when he visits the Children’s Room Saturday, March 22. Chris wrote the OPLbery-winning book Escape From Mr. Lemoncello’s Library, and many others.

He’ll be talking about his books, and about writing in general. We will have some of his books for sale, as well.

Attendance is limited to the first 80 people to arrive. FREE tickets will be distributed beginning at 1:15 pm

This is a program for children in 3rd grade and above.

Fun with boxes

March 11, 2014

Today in Ready, Set, Kindergarten! we had lots of fun with boxes.

There are so many great books about boxes; we didn’t have time to read them all.

We also brought out the song cube again today. The kids love taking turns tossing the cube and then singing the songs.

After the stories and songs, we had free play time instead of a craft today. In addition to building toys, we had lots of boxes to play with.

You can see all the photos on our flickr page.

Everyone loves a story time about underwear!

March 4, 2014

It was so much fun to be back after missing last week’s story time while attending a day-long training. I learned lots of great new things that I’ll be incorporating into Ready, Set, Kindergarten! a little at a time.

Today we had a wild and crazy story time about underwear! Did you know there were so many funny books about underwear?

We sang Head, Shoulders, Knees and Underpants, and we had fun playing with pieces from “What Color is Your Underwear.”

Everyone made a sheep with a secret–under their wool they were wearing underwear!
