Welcome back! We can hardly believe it is almost the end of June! Happy Pride Month!!! We have one additional invitation today, to participate in this year’s Summer Reading Challenge.
We want to encourage you to sign up for the DCL Summer Reading Challenge. This summer they have gotten very creative with great resources for activities, book lists and recommendations, and a code word challenge for older children!
Language/Literacy Invitation: For all the age groups today we are offering Julian is a Mermaid by Jessica Love. This wonderful story of exploration and support is much-loved by young children. You can watch a read aloud by Dr. Marianne Magjuka here, or as part of a Drag Queen Story Hour here.
Fine Motor/Design Invitation: Light table work
A few weeks ago, Sarah and Caitlyn shared an idea for creating a light table at home. You can also use a small tracing tablet. Today, we are wondering what kind of translucent or transparent things you can find for your middler to explore on the light table. Many magnetic blocks are transparent and very interesting when paired with a light table. This is an opportunity for children to explore light/dark, design, and motor skills.
