The Biggs Branch of the Butte County Library now features a storytime and art activity every 3rd Saturday of the month. Last Saturday we read the book Clara Caterpillar by Pamela Duncan.
Before reading the book we talked about how there are lots of interesting words in the story and that a lot of those words start with the letter “C”. As we read the story the family followed along with their own copy provided by the library.
We put out chalk boards and chalk and printouts of some complex vocabulary that children could practice writing.
After we finished the story we were able to give a copy of the book for the family to take home thanks to our Yearn to Learn grant through the State Library of California which also provided our supplies.
Then we made kites and visors using the letter “C”.
