Our Homeschool Club met for the first time yesterday at 1:30pm.
First we got to know the Library a little better. In two groups, the children were given a sheet of photographed items located in the Library, a marker, and a camera. Both groups were sent off to find the items, take a picture of it, and cross it off the sheet.
The children in attendance participated in get to know you games called "have you ever" and a modified version of hot potato. The games were highly energizing and we now know who are our basketball fans, who is extra giggly, and who has never lived on a farm.
I gave each child and parent a survey. The children let me know what they are interested in doing during our Club meetings and what things they could really care less about. These surveys will help me plan exciting activities for the Club.
In addition to our activities, we had two guests: a tv reporter and cameraman! Check out their interview here: http://www.weau.com/home/headlines/Welcome_to_the_Homeschool_Club_139757863.html
If you are interested in our brand new Homeschool Club, please contact Jenna at firstname.lastname@example.org or 715.877.3334. I will e-mail the surveys to you. I can also leave surveys at the Circulation Desk - just ask :)
We meet the 3rd Monday of the month at 1:30pm. If interest increases we can add an additional day and time. Do let me know if this appeals to you.
Next month we'll focus on learning about Spring through art and science!
