This past week was a great week at the Brandon Public Library. On Monday they had 2 Baby and Me programs. The first one had 8 kids and 5 adults. I observed during this one. But, I did get up and do the dances to the songs! They sang and danced, read 2 books on counting, and then had playtime for 15 minutes. The next Baby and Me program I read the books and led the singing and dancing. For this one there was 4 kids and 3 adults. The program was exactly the same as the first one. After we did this we began taking down the displays from last month.
On Wednesday they had one preschool program. I didn't read the books, but I participated in the singing and dancing and helped with the craft. The theme for this program was space. Mrs. Jessica read books about space and the craft was a space rocket. For this we took a small rocket pattern that the children had colored, taped it on the front of a cone shaped water cup (the kind that are at the water cooler), and then used small strips of red crepe paper for the fire. It was a very simple craft and the kids seemed to enjoy it. There were 15 kids and 7 adults for this program, I believe.
After we got cleaned up from the program we started decorating for Halloween. The children's department is now covered in pumpkins and scarecrows. Pics to come later!!!
