At my school we are very lucky to be located so close to the main public library in the city. Although we do travel by bus due to safety issues, it is wonderful to be able to go and get out of the classroom once a month. In September there had been some issues with busing so, we weren't going to be able to go to the library. Have no fear, because the two librarians who always host offered to come to us! They are simply amazing! They brought their books and their craft supplies and we met them in the cafeteria. For the month of September they had chosen the them of pirates! Who doesn't love pirates?! The kiddos were very excited as this was their first time meeting with the librarians. They had so many questions to ask and were so eager to listen to the stories.
Unfortunately, my memory has failed me. I cannot remember what pirate tales they read to us! After they read the stories and fielded questions, they started to work on the craft with the kiddos. They made pirates out of paper plates. They were ADORABLE! They were so cute, we couldn't let them go home just yet! So, my super awesome para made a pirate ship for our little land-lubbers to hang out on. How cute is this:
Do you visit the library with your kiddos? If so, how often?
