Library League

This is an ongoing series of programs. It is held several times throughout the school year, usually in 6 week sessions, though that varies due to workshops and holidays. The program takes place at 3:15 on Fridays, as the local branch art museum’s homeschool art class ends at 3. The branch is located across the road from the library branch.

The program is advertised for kids in K-4th grades; however, there have been several children age 4 or in 5th or 6th grades who also attend. The basic format for the program is as follows:

  • Some discussion about the topic
  • Read 2 picture books appropriate for this age group
  • Work on a project appropriate for the theme

Additionally, I show several books available to be checked out that are about the theme. These books are both fiction and non-fiction.

As the attendees are mostly homeschool families, I provide a list of the themes and book titles read each session. This can be added to their portfolios – a requirement for homeschooling families in Ohio (from what I am told, they can have a portfolio or they can test)

I will do several posts with the themes, especially as I have photos to go with some of the crafts!
