Burnham Bunch: Frogs … ribbit

The library I was thrown into a tizzy today … News Channel 3 and Mark Dixon taped a segment for “Cool Schools” …. and author/illustrator Mercer Mayer was here to read to the Burnham School kiddos. So, I tried to pick an “easy” project for today. I reused my fave book, Frog in a Bog by Karma Wilson, (LOVE this book) and a flannel board activity that goes along with it. We also sang a tune about a speckled frog on a speckled log … not sure if you ever heard of it?!




Burnham School is one “Cool School”

Big Happenings in Bridgewater today, as Channel 3 News tapes “Cool Schools” with Mark Dixon! Congratulations to Burnham School … we always knew that you were cool! And we had the amazing opportunity to meet author/illustrator Mercer Mayer. Pretty much a great day here at the library …


Burnham Bunch: Butterflies

Today’s theme was butterflies. I use this them every year … trying to make it fresh each time. I found a great pin on Pinterest which uses a coffee can caterpillar. The kiddos had the chance to “feed” our caterpillar, while I read The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carl. So fun! We also read Butterfly, Butterfly by Petr Horacek. This book has a beautiful pop-up butterfly at the end! A nice little surprise.

Dance Camp

Dance Camp began in December. It was an idea brought to us by teen Ashley Mulhare. She LOVES dance, and wanted to share that with the children of Bridgewater. She provided a free opportunity for kids to discover dance. It’s been a great time for all the kids involved. I hope that Ashley is very please with the results!
