Week 3 for Ness City Public Libray Readers was a fun filled one! On Tuesday, Dan Dan the Magic Man and his two side-kicks (sons) arrived at the Methodist Church and presented an awesome show of entertainment and magic! Several kid in the audience participated and of course Dan Dan had a few of his special trick pets with him, a hamster name ‘Flash’ was the speediest thing on paws, and a beautiful white rabbit kept disappearing. In the end all the animals were back in their homes.
Friday brought out eleven the first and second graders for their ‘activity day’. We met here at the library and had a great time. Hero sun catchers were painted by each child. Ms. Jean read the book, “Lucy and the Bully” by Clair Alexander. The children had to decide who they thought was the hero in the book. The kid came up with several heroes and described why the felt they were a hero. The next book was about real life heroes – policemen.
The children created red, white and blue bees and butterflies with foam craft, they turned out really cute. Everyone enjoyed the snack of some-more dip and graham cracker with fruit-punch juice. We ended the activity time with a game of “Extinguish the Flames.” Two teams tried to get their bean-bag to land on a paper flame, which extinguished it and gave their team a point. The boys had the red flames and the girls had the yellow flames. It was a very close race!
We were having so much fun we forgot to hand out the ‘goodie bags’ to the children. So if you attended the activity time for first and second graders, please stop by and pick up your bags.
Also check to see if you were a winner for the prize drawing last week, we still have some prizes that have not been picked up and it time to draw more name for this week’s prize drawing.
