We’ve had a great summer of reading! It’s been all about catching the Reading Bug! Here are descriptions and pictures from the first programs.
We started the summer with a Rally for Reading on a stormy Saturday in May. Peter McCory, The One-Man Band, had everyone singing and dancing.
We even played some of his instruments! There was face painting, food, storybook readers, origami paper-folding and books to pick up and purchase from the Winchester Book Gallery.
It was the first time to register for the Summer Reading Club.
We had a great time exploring the library grounds while looking for grasses to add to our shirts. We wanted to make sure the butterflies and dragonflies were resting on something.
We started with a t-shirt, stuffed it with newspaper, added the stencils and grasses and twigs and waited for our parents or other adults to spray our shirts with red or blue dye.
The sun helped to dry the shirt.
We had some great shirts at the end! Look at mine!
