Reader's Studio Says "Oh Brother! Oh Sister!"
We had a small but enthusiastic group at the last Reader's Studio of the school year on Monday, April 16, 2012 at 6:30 pm. Our theme was Oh Brother! Oh Sister!, and we laughed a lot as we shared the books we read about siblings.
Alonna - Oh Brother! Oh Sister!: A Sister's Guide to Getting Along by Brooks Whitney
Aziza - told a story about her and her sister Anjum
Citlali - Underground Homes by Jeff Bauer
Emily - Wishes, Kisses, and Pigs by Betsy Hearne
Miss Katie Jane - Super Completely and Totally the Messiest by Judith Viorst ; Zombie Tag by Hannah Moskowitz
Maddie - Times Squared by Julia DeVillers
Miss Polly - The Family Hitchcock by Mark Levin & Jennifer Flackett (& Dan Elish)
Sofia - Snow Is My Favorite and My Best by Lauren Child (Charlie & Lola book)
Miss Katie Jane forgot to check the battery on the camera (oh no!), so we didn't get any pictures until the very end when Miss Laura saved the day. But she was able to get some good shots of us making and using our crafts. In honor of sibling rivalry, we made sibling thumb wrestlers.
Reader's Studio takes a break during the summer, but there's plenty to keep you busy at the Hoover Public Library. Check out the Kid Zone page to see what's headed this way. And here's a sneak peak of the "genres" that the Reader's Studio will be tackling in the 2012-2013 school year.
