Adair elwing's Ideas

Read Around the Library

We played on the VBS theme used maps to decorate the idea being that they read out of each 'group' (fiction, 100s, 200s,...) with a round prize for each (glo-stick, pencil,  ball...) and they put a sticker on a world map for each book Both our regular church kids and the day-care kids are enjoying I did not even think about asking the adults to join us

Adair,  I have an extremely busy week this week.  We have almost 100 reservations coming to Paris Day, our first homeschool event this school year.  That is Thursday and it will take us all day Friday to pack up and clean up.  Maybe next week I could get with you.  I work Monday and Wednesday afternoons at nursing home and at library some Tuesdays and every Thursday.  Talk to you later.  Carol Gilmore
