Our summer reading program is in full swing at our local library. I work there part time and am having a great time helping with activities. Sunshine (that’s my co-worker) is doing a great job.
This week’s family night had Ronald McDonald teaching us how to be creative at the library. He told lots of jokes and did magic tricks. The kids LOVED him. I thought my 10 year old son would be too old to enjoy this but he keeps talking about how great it was.
The program lasted about an hour and during that time Ronald wowed everyone with his humor. My kids favorite part was when he drew a face on a white board which he called his “Dictionary”. The face then proceeded to “come to life”. The face moved it’s eyes and mouth to spell words and give definitions. Even I was pretty spellbound.
My kids have really started reading so they can get prizes at the end of the SRP. For each 5 picture books or 50 pages in a chapter book they receive a ticket that they can put in as a chance to win a prize. The top 50 readers will also get a t-shirt which was donated by the Sardinia Pharmacy where my sister works. Thanks Dale!!!! What a great way to get kids to love reading. I will post again next week when we have a real magician coming to the family night on Wednesday.
