This week you are in either in the parenting stage where the recent ending of daylight savings may have scored you the chance to actually sleep in .... or are you in the stage where it Doesn't. Matter. At. All? (Raises hand wildly!)
In either case, November has made its debut, and with that comes exciting ways for kids to explore their creativity – wherever their interest lies. Plus, it’s a great week to explore something new outside of normal comfort zones – think singing, playing, reading, and building...and yep, squishing!!
This week we start off with squishy sensory indoor fun (don’t worry parents, the mess will still be contained outside your home!). Get some reading practice in with some furry friends, build your imaginations literally with LEGO designs, and get ready to sing your little hearts out.
The end of this week is all about American Pride as we take the time to salute and thank the veterans for their service.
Babies and toddlers use a mishmash explosion of sensory data to make sense of the world around them. The more squishy, messy, scratchy, nubby fun we can show them, the more they learn! Head to the Plymouth Art Center for a morning of sensory play planned with wee little fingers and toes in mind. Prepare to join in and get grubby!
At this event kids pick out books and then read to the Aurora Therapy Dogs at the Manitowoc Public Library. This is a chance for early readers to practice their literacy skills in a non-threatening environment. Dogs sit patiently as the children read or tell stories to improve their reading and verbalization skills. The dogs love the kids and are very gentle, letting the children pet them and touch them. Fun for all!
The Elkhart Lake school district would like to invite the community to attend and share in this event honoring all who have served or are currently serving. The High School Band and Chorus will perform a few selections for this event, which will also include speeches and poetry reading from students.
