Today we learned about Nebraska, the Cornhusker state. We read The Divide by Michael Bedard.
And we made corn husk dolls.
For snack we had fruit pudding – mixed berry or peach, with powdered sugar on top. Yum! Many thanks to Miss Sarah for all the wonderful food she makes for our after-school program.

- Science: CODING Nebraska Library Commission has some great resources to learn to code divided out into age group. “Learning to Code is in the spotlight as a way for young children, tweens and young adults to check out STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) focus areas. Did you know that there are many free resources including websites and free downloadable computer software that can be used for coding activities for all of these age groups? The good news is that as library staff you do not have to know how to computer program or code to offer an activity or program at the library for young people in your community.”
- Math: This state’s math exercise is for pre-K and the young kids. Nebraska has set up a parent’s guide to help you and your young ones begin the math adventure. Nebraska Math Education
