Smart Art :  Inspired by “Nigel and the Moon”, add your dreams to our community board! Using scissors, crayons, and tape, attach what you want to be when you grow up under a big moon! Every good book needs a wonderful bookmark to go with it! Use watercolor paper, spray bottles, and string to put together something colorful to pause your progress! Sensory Table)> Explore the night sky using black water and glitter stars! And don’t forget to make a wish! 

Purpose: Not only will this day encourage children to read, it will also hone their creativity and get them thinking about the future. They will develop fine motor skills, take healthy risks, and express their creativity. Children will also have a chance to develop their social emotional and teamwork building skills. 

Story Time (TIMES: 11am, 12pm (session 1) & 2:30pm & 3:30pm (session 2)):  Niguel and the Moon by: Antwan Eady 

Synopsis: When Nigel looks up at the moon, his future is bright. He imagines himself as…an astronaut, a dancer, a superhero, too!  Among the stars, he twirls. With pride, his chest swells. And his eyes, they glow. Nigel is the most brilliant body in the sky. But it’s Career Week at school, and Nigel can’t find the courage to share his dreams. It’s easy to whisper them to the moon, but not to his classmates—especially when he already feels out of place. 

Grown-up Tip: Literacy skills start at birth! Visuals like black and white cards, various designs, and or following a mobile help your baby with eye coordination and movement. Listening to voices and watching facial expressions also connect with early literacy.
