Terrific Tuesdays Summer Wind-up

Today was the last day for the Library's Terrific Tuesdays programs.  I'm sad about it.  But we have some great photos.  As always, click the pictures to bigify.

Casey at the Bat showed her elementary school-age patrons how to create a make-believe story, reading an example and then giving them a Garfield the Cat cartoon to illustrate storyboarding.  She also tossed a beanbag around the group, allowing everyone to add something to an ongoing story they made up as they went along.  Then everyone sat down to create their own stories.

There's the Punch Line!

 Creating Your Own Stories

Meanwhile, Crafty Gal did the storytime thing with her kinder & pre-kinder crowd (and their caregivers).  The story was about a talking melon, but there was really a spider inside that did the talking.  She then had her charges create their own spidery crafts and insert a plastic spider into a "melon" (i.e., orange tennis ball).  There was cantaloupe to eat, too, for snack time.

It was a terrific way to end the Library's summer children's programming, I'd venture.
