Date: May 15, 2024
Program: Pre-School Story Time
Theme: Birds

Activities:

Birds was the theme for the Pre-School Story Time this week. We talked about some local birds, owls, turkeys, different bird nests and nesting sites, saw neat feathers, and heard recordings of several birds. The children took home a poster of Virginia birds so they can identify birds in their neighborhood, and a coloring page.

The next story time will be in September.

Be sure to check the library’s Face Book page for the summer activities – summer reading program with rewards, and the four events in July at the fire house.

Healthy Highlands focus for May is mental health. The flyers available for taking address mental illness and stress/anxiety.

Mental illness symptoms include excessive worry and sadness, confusion, extreme mood change, strong anger or irritability, withdrawal, changes in sleeping and eating habits, overuse of substances, suicidal thoughts, inability to cope, and difficultly perceiving reality.

Stress and anxiety are interrelated but different. Stress is a response to external causes but dissipates once resolved. Anxiety is your reaction to stress but is a feeling that doesn’t go away and is constant even if there is no immediate stress. Both can lead to body ailments like high blood pressure, tension in muscles, loss of sleep, and headaches.

The flyers offer help for dealing with these issues and list online resources.

Program: Pre-School Story Time
Theme: Spring Time and Growing Things

Activities:
Springtime! Everybody loves it. We recited a poem about it, and talked about its warmth, flowers and trees blooming. Gardening time. More daylight hours to play outside. They learned that growing plants was something even a child could do.

What does it take to grow a plant? Sun, soil, and rain. The children taped vegetables and fruits to growing location – underground, above ground, and on a tree. Pollination was their new word to learn. Three girls were flowers, and a boy the bee. Bee moved pollen from flower to flower.

We watched a time lapse on YouTube of seeds growing. The children put gravel, potting soil, and compost in a large plastic cup and planted zinnia seeds. A laminated ruler in the cup will help them watch the zinnia’s growth. The children then had snacks and played so happily together.
