We’re All Sharks!

Today in Family Storytime we read some fun books about sharks, we heard the story of the three little fish and the big, bad shark, and we made our own shark fins.

Can you see me?

This week in Full STEAM Ahead we learned about animal camouflage. And then everyone tried to make art that would be camouflaged in one of three habitats: coral reef, forest, or desert.

We used washable markers to make our designs on plain white coffee filters. When the designs were done, they were sprayed with water, and the colors ran and bled into each other. Here are a few of the designs. Did they succeed in blending in with their backgrounds?

DIY Poetry

Our DIY Poetry Station has been out all during April to celebrate National Poetry Month. Some kids took their poems home, and others were happy to share with us. Here’s what our bulletin board looks like now that April is almost over.

Thanks to everyone who contributed a poem (or two!).

No Fooling!

Today is April Fools’ Day, and to celebrate, Family Storytime was all about tricks.

We read about a very clever and tricky “crocoduck,” we guessed (wrong) again and again, and we heard some silly knock-knock jokes.

Everyone made a pair of fake glasses. Don’t they look silly?

It finally feels like spring, and our spring program flyers are available. You can pick up a copy in the Children’s Room, print one here in English, or here in Spanish.

Here is a link to our calendar, or to our programs.

What did the dog say when it sat on sandpaper?

Ruff!

That was just one of the dog jokes from today’s celebration of Every Day’s a Holiday.

Today is National Puppy Day, and we had lots of puppy fun.

We had a puppy trivia contest. Did you know that dogs have 8 blood types? Or that a healthy dog’s temperature is 101.5? Do you know how many teeth a puppy has when it is born? Zero!

We also ate like dogs–no hands.

We ended with a calmer activity: making art.

Thank you to William Wegman for the inspiration.
