Welcome to our weekly blog post - Sharing the Storytime Joy! Today's post is by Alicia, who works with children and families at the New Haven Branch Library.
Last week the New Haven Branch Family Storytime group explored St. Patrick’s Day! We built background knowledge by discussing what we already knew about St. Patrick’s Day and added a few new words to our vocabularies: “shamrock” and “leprechaun”.
During our Preschool Primer program that directly follows storytime, we used the ideas we learned from How to Catch a Leprechaun to build our very own leprechaun traps! We used blocks, magnetic blocks, Magna-Tiles, and hand crafted 4-leaf clovers to lure in the tricky little creatures.
