Bulletin Board Art for November: Arndt's Preschool

This month's bulletin board art comes from

Arndt's Preschool

Every month, the Easton Area Public Library offers the bulletin boards in the children's room to local childcare centers in the Easton School District. The centers are welcome to display creative artwork, photographs, 3D art projects, and promotional materials. Make sure to visit the children's room to see their artwork up close! If you're interested in learning more about Arndt's Preschool, contact information is available on their displays.

Fall Fun with Friends

Hand Fed Turkeys!

It's a Whale of a Tale, it's a Big Blue Whale!

If you missed preschool storytime this week, here is what we talked about:
Whales!  What's the first sound you hear in the word, whale? /w/  What is a whale?  Where do whales live?  What else do you know about whales?

Let's sing our Little Bird Song:  Way up in the sky, the little birds fly.  While down in the nest, the little birds rest.  Shhh!  They're sleeping.  With a wing on the left and a wing on the right, the little birds sleep all through the night.  Shhh!  They're sleeping.   THEN!   Up comes the sun, the dew goes away!  Good morning!  Good morning! The little birds say!  (repeat a little faster)

It's Storytime!  Your ears are to listen!  Your eyes are to look!  Now let's get together and read a great book!  Here is the book, and here is the (cover).  When you open it up, there's a lot to discover!

Blue Whale: The World's Biggest Mammal by Molly Smith.  The kids loved learning all about where blue whales live, what they eat, and how they breathe!
