May is National Inventors Month. During this time the innovative individuals that improved our lives with their creative inventions are celebrated! Teachers, this would be a fun, interesting topic to conclude the school year.
May is "Get Caught Reading Month"! This is a nationwide campaign to remind people of all ages how much it is to read!

Last week, we caught sisters Ashley & Lily reading in the children's room.

We ended our storytime by dancing to some great bath songs with scarves and making music with rhythm sticks & egg shakers
