Moving into Summer

Storytimes have ended and now I begin school visits. St Patrick School kindergartens have visited and more schools are scheduled. These are fun to do because the kids are so enthused about summer and what they are going to do.
Get on the "wait list" for Science in the Summer. Malvern will offer the class July 22-25. Yes, you must attend all 4 classes. Please make sure your 2nd-5th grader is registered!

April is poetry month and Thursday, April 18 is the official day. Our Storytime kids will decorate a bag to participate in read a poem day. The businesses along King St will have a sign in the window announcing them as a " host "business. They will welcome your child to read or recite a short poem and have a small treat for your child's bag. Some businesses will extend this time through the weekend. This is a General Wayne Elementary School-Malvern Public Library co-operative project.

Jenifer Bryant-author and Poet- will visit GW School on Monday, April 29 and the same evening will be at Malvern Library for a short program and  to announce winners in the poetry writing contest. Check the Great Valley School web page for updates-www.gvsd.org.

Looking to March

"If March comes in like a lion, it will go out like a lamb.
If March comes in like a lamb, it will go out like a lion."

March 1st we will know and keep track all month with our lion
and lamb craft. Mary Had a Little Lamb is our rhyme this month.

"See the lion, see the lion, Fierce and proud, fierce and proud. Looking for his food, looking for his food. Roar!! Roar!! Roar!!
See the lamb, see the lamb,Cuddly and soft, cuddly and soft. Playing in the field, playing in the field. Baa, Baa, Baa" (tune-Fere Jacques)

Another Source for On-line Reading-not an App

I just checked out another resource for FREE on-line reading for ages newborn-10years. The book choices include an age guideline. You may "join" or enter through your facebook account. www.wegivebooks.org is a program of the Pearson Foundation. The bonus is by reading books thru this site you are also donating books . Visit the web site and enjoy.
