Halloween Storytime

On Wednesday  October 31st our Toddlers from storytime got to parade through the village in their Halloween costumes.

The previous week they painted pumpkin for some of the local businesses.  On Halloween they gave the pumpkins to

the Mayor’s office, the Post Office, Marshes Market, and Skillmans.  When they returned to the library, they listened to the

story Don’t Push the Button: A Halloween Adventure by Bill Cotter.  We finished up storytime with homemade Pumpkin Cupcakes

topped with frosting and candy corn.

Symbolizing strength and moral integrity, gladioli also represent infatuation,

with a bouquet conveying to a recipient that they pierce the giver’s heart with passion.

Striking and colorful with towering stems, this August birth flower and 40th wedding

anniversary flower evoke the drama of Roman gladiators.

St Bonaventure’s Art Mobile was successful!

Ms. Gwen & Ms. Abbey had the children’s attention from start to finish!  They had wonderful activities planned based on Music and Keith Herring.  The children were in deep conversation about art and display of all its form.  The first project proposed was a listen activity, where the children listened to four different songs and drew what they felt.

                            

The second activity was their version of music chairs (of a sort).  Ms. Gwen and Ms. Abbey set up some art pieces that they brought from St. Bonaventure University.  They then play more songs and had the children stand by they piece of artwork they believed the music represented, the participants then had to explained their reasoning for their choice.

      

The last activity involved looking at some of Keith Herring drawings and having the children cut and put together a figure resembling a Keith Herring paintings.  They colored the finish project with markers after that.

    

Thanks to all who came!
