My name is Samantha Luschen and I am so excited to start the new year with the Donnelly Library Afterschool Program! My son, Gideon, loves playing, learning, and reading with the students. Since returning to school, we have been learning about teamwork and civil rights. If you have visited the Library recently, you might have noticed a snow maze developing. Everyone has been working together to create a fun maze with tunnels with an igloo in the works! The children have been diving into civil rights while we learned about Martin Luther King Jr., Rosa Parks, and the Underground Railroad. After reading Follow the Drinking Gourd by Jeanette Winter, I challenged each child to find the the Big Dipper and Little Dipper constellations. I can’t wait to hear about their search!
Don’t forget that reading any ten (10) snow books and/or civil rights books will earn you a brag tag!
