On November 14th, Pine Village and the South End Branch library collaborated to bring families a Spanish language story time. Activities were themed around farms and farm animals, and included songs, books, and an art project.
|Karina and Myrna have real fun on the imaginary farm!
The event was a true example of team-work. Our toddler teacher, Claudia, prepared the art project. Preschool teacher Karina sang songs about the farm using pictures from her classroom’s vocabulary wall. Myrna, our South End director, read a book, utilizing a felt board and pre-cut images of the animals mentioned. Teachers helped to stick the pictures of the animals on the board giving children the opportunity to see the story as it was read. Everyone was amazed! Children were counting the animals with us and making animal noises, and they learned to repeat the names of the animals, all in Spanish!
The event was free and open to the public and there was an amazing turn-out. Thank you to the South End library, our wonderful staff, and to all the families, schools, and children who made this event a huge success! A special thank you to Children’s Librarian Margaret, without whom this event would not have been possible! Spanish Story Time recurs most months during the year.
