#flannelfriday: Ouch!

I have no shame in seeing a post on the Flannel Friday pinterest board that I like and copying it almost exactly.  I figure its okay as long as I give credit where credit is due. This summer I decided that I really needed to jazz up my flannel collection.  I’d been using many of … Continue reading

Fall 2012 Programming

Fall 2012 Programming

It’s been so long since I blogged about the programming I do that I have to go all the way back to Fall – which is kind of nuts since I’m currently in the process of planning for Fall 2013. During Fall 2012, we had a bit of a moratorium on programming in our system. … Continue reading

Sometimes You Just Need a Win

Sometimes You Just Need a Win

Sometimes, the day-to-day repetitiveness wears you down and you feel uninspired.  I especially felt this way after a whole fall of very little programming due to budget cuts.  And by little programming, I mean Storytime, desk time, and then the million other things that you do off desk but aren’t always as much fun as … Continue reading

Jimmy the Olympian?

Jimmy the Olympian?

Today I was feeling extra silly in storytime today with Jimmy.  I don’t know if it was because it was the last Toddler Storytime of the summer of because the parents were interacting a lot with their children so I wanted to make them laugh or because I hit my stride in storytime (which is … Continue reading

A Week of Awesome Storytimes & #flannelfriday

A Week of Awesome Storytimes & #flannelfriday

This week I offered some stellar storytimes, I have to admit. At Toddler Storytime on Wednesday I did a puppet version of Campbell’s Dear Zoo which went over splendidly!  I got the idea from Beyond the Book Storytimes blog and used regular brown boxes with special made shipping labels.  I didn’t have all of the … Continue reading

My first #FlannelFriday Post

My first #FlannelFriday Post

I probably won’t make posting on Flannel Fridays a regular thing, but I thought it’d be fun to do since I’ve been making finger puppets and new flannels here at Glendale.  At PVLD I was a little spoiled by their huge collection of flannel board stories to choose from and now that I only have … Continue reading

The First Time: Pre-School Storytime

The First Time: Pre-School Storytime

Yesterday (Monday) I had my first pre-school storytime here at GPL.  I was a little stressed about it because I started work 30 min before storytime was to begin and realized that I had planned on doing a flannel that I’ve only told once (Anansi & the Moss Covered Rock) and singing a song w/pom … Continue reading

The First Time

The First Time

The first time you do anything at a new job is nerve wracking.  At least for me.  Christian says that in your first few weeks you get a hall pass.  You’re allowed to mess up and no one can get too mad at you because how could you know?  You used your judgment.  But I … Continue reading

TAC Sponsored Easter Egg Hunt

TAC Sponsored Easter Egg Hunt

I was so proud of my TAC on Saturday!  They put on a pretty successful Easter Egg Hunt/Spring Storytime/Craft for the little kids.  The majority of planning was done with myself and the TAC, with the programming librarian and the Children’s Assistant helping to coordinate the craft and act as a sounding board when maybe … Continue reading
