Family Storytime and Craft: Monday, August 30th

Following our storytime program, children will have an opportunity to create a collage that will include the child's name or a special word. Keeping with our "green" theme we will be using recycled cardboard and baby food lids as part of our collage.
Storytime starts at 7:00 pm, and everyone is welcome.

Below are the words for the Cool Bear Hunt Song by Dr. JeanThis song is truely a favorite of the children who attend storytime.  I have also included a link, so you may oder the cd if you would like. This is a great song to help children learn directionality concepts (under, over around, etc...) and in turn, promotes visual perceptual skills needed to learn how to read and write.

Order the CD:  Dr. Jean sings silly songs
We also sing the "Hokey Pokey" song for the same reason. 
 

 

Keeping a Watchful Eye

During hot summer days, water activities are a great way to exercise and cool off. Even though the kids are back in school, many Texans will be enjoying the beach and local pool for weeks to come. As the days roll into fall, it's easy to become more relaxed and less mindful of the dangers of water, I wanted to remind everyone about water safety.

A Year of Fun

 

 

The Summer Reading Program may be over but the Atascocita Branch Library has fun activities for families all year long.  You can find a list of programs on our Branch Calendar.

This Thursday, August 12th, our very talented Children's Librarian, Ms Susan, will be sharing a few of her favorite underwater stories.  Children will make a fun handprint craft after the program. 

 

Back to School Fun!

Summer is almost over and many children will begin returning to school this month. Often, students have the first day jitters starting school, or experience stress when entering a new grade.  Below are a few books that you might enjoy reading as a family. Books have the ability to provide children insight, or they can even shed light on the funny side of life.
