The wait is over! The Stettler Public Library TD Summer Reading Club is starting on July 2nd in the library with the Lion group (ages 5-7) at 10:30 a.m. – 12 p.m., followed by the Tigers (ages 8-10) from 12:30 p.m. – 2 p.m. and ending the day with the Bear group (11+) from 3 p.m. – 5 p.m.
Lions and Tigers and Bears OH MY!!! This will be a day filled with getting to know your activities, reading, and a craft for the Lions and Tigers. The Bears will be reading, playing games, and other fun activities that they won’t want to miss!
There will be daily activities that focus on the five aspects of literacy: reading, writing, listening, communicating, and representing each day with a theme tied into each week based around our big theme of the Natural World.
Representing can be done through STEM activities, a craft and or physical activities. The first week will be getting to know you and activities based on nature. Other themes for July are water week, detective week, techno week, and science week.
