- Program Goals
- Offer a summer storytime for a wide range of ages
- Encourage outdoor experience and involvement in the gardens
- Attendance: 25
- Attendance: 45
- Feedback/Connections: Lots of sign-ups for summer reading.
- Notes: I should have expected a bigger group - Pattie always draws a crowd. This was a little hectic and it was just as well that it was raining and we had to skip the outdoor portion, because I don't feel there was enough adult supervision to keep the little ones safe outside. It was very nice overall and we got to see lots of new kids. It was mostly preschool-age, which was great because that's my best age.
I started with shakers and Laurie Berkner's "Fruit Salad Salsa" then we read Planting the Wild Garden by Kathryn Galbraith (edited for the younger audience) then we did "The Enormous Carrot" which was super popular and finished with Looking Closely in the Garden by Frank Serafini.
Craft time: 10:30-11:30
Pattie did stepping stones. Messy, but fun
Picnic/Outdoor time: 11-12
People were supposed to go outdoors, help us plant the gardens, and eat under the tree. It was raining and this didn't happen.
