Jeez. November. I can’t help but think about Bats at the Library right now and how there’s a quote in there that says something like, “life flits by at dizzy speed…” How true!

Here’s my very busy October –

Bought vacuum and mattress – very clean carpets and very cozy bed.

Hosted quite a few meetings and events in the library – Rolling Readers training, SC Book Award Committee meetings, and then the usual faculty meeting, SIC meeting, etc. Hosted the July, August, September and October Birthday Book Club Celebration (Marty came and talked about being a front person in a band…then, we sang karaoke) and Lion Cub Club.

Speaking of Lion Cub Club – here’s what I did for STORYTIME – this month, of course, was Halloween themed. FYI – I now do storytime for 3 different groups: our 4 year olds, Lion Cubs, and Park North.

Read: There was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Bat (gave pieces of the story to kids to put on flannel board as I read); Dem Bones by Bob Barner; when there was time, I also read The Little Old Lady Who Was Not Afraid of Anything and In a Dark, Dark House.

Fingerplay and songs: 5 Little Pumpkins (with a glove and velcroed pumpkins); I’m a Little Pumpkin

Snack: Rice crispy treats (pre-packaged for Halloween with bats on them – I just don’t have time to be too clever with the snacks with so many different groups!)

Craft: Pasta skeletons. Each student got a black piece of construction paper, various pasta noodles, and glue. They created a skeleton of their own design with their supplies. They came out super cute.

November is going to go by very fast, I know. SO MUCH GOING ON! Guess you’ll read about that around the first of December 🙂

Have a safe and happy Halloween!

    I read that book: “The Little Old Lady Who Was Not Afraid of Anything” to my preschool storyhour in SPANISH. Was so surprised how the translation was on point and the children enjoyed it. We followed the storyhour with a craft.
