5 Storytime Kits were designed for use with kids 3-8. Each kit has a theme and comes with related books, flannel board activities, crafts, songs, rhymes & planning tools.
ThIs summer reading program kit provided by library staff and a summer intern from Tisdale Community Library in Saskatchewan is for the whole community.
The Shake, Rattle and Read program models early literacy for the preschoolers. The Ready Set Read, Tween Book Club and Teen Challenge programs help children to maintain and improve their reading levels during the summer months, building vocabulary and reading comprehension. The Children in Ready, Set Read spend one on one time with a volunteer. The Crafts and other activities extend the reading experience; stimulate the children’s imagination, and the children become more excited about reading.
The TD Reading Club, Shake, Rattle and Read, and Ready, Set, Read programs keep track of the books they read in the log books provided by the TD program. On the library’s WALL OF FAME each child has a paper with their name that they place a sticker on for every book that they read or is read to them. The adults keep track of their reading on their bingo cards. We send out Bingo cards with the books that our volunteers deliver to our Books on Wheel Patrons so those that are unable to come to the library can still take part in our summer program.
This program incorporates digital tools: Storybird and Tumblebooks.
