Mrs. Etta’s Sneak Peek of the Week at the Library

Friday May 20th 2022

This week, Mrs. Etta was inspired by author Paul Czajak’s book, Seager the Weaver, about the spider who breaks tradition and creates a web in new and innovative shapes. Related to this theme, she read Kindergarten and Grade One students Lois Ehlert’s book, Color Zoo, that features a variety of animals composed of different shapes meticulously connected. The students drew their own creative shape animals out of circles, triangles, and squares.

As a follow-up to introducing Grade Two students to word play homonyms with the book Dear Deer by Gene Barretta, the students “played” on the words “Bear/Bare” by drawing a “bear, who cannot bear to be bare.” The result was a variety of bears sporting hats, decorative coats, and even a kippah!

At the end of last week, readers who participated in the Pesach Reading Club were awarded a free book for a job well done over Yom Tov. The gift of a new book is always the most meaningful reward for enriching one’s time with the joy of reading.
