Have you ever observed the weather? A scientist you watches the weather and the atmosphere is called meterologist. The study of the atmosphere and the weather is meterology. We created a weather page to add to your Summer Science Notebook. The activity page includes a short list of non-fiction and fiction books to read, weather observation questions and a weather prediction chart.

The library's Summer Reading Program is under the theme Fizz Boom Read! We're so excited for a Science Theme Summer!!
In celebration of Fizz Boom Read, the Children's Librarians are creating pages for young scientists to use over the summer and add to their own Science Notebook. Each week we hope to post a new page to print off for more science activities young scientist can do at home with a grown-up assistant. We'll list all our pages on this page: Summer Science 2014, but be on the lookout for individual pages posted on the blog.
During the month of May, the Children's Room hosts a special story time celebrating the season of Spring! This year at Preschool Planters Story Time, we talked about stems and sticks, leaves, and flowers. During story time, we read books about each theme and danced to some Jim Gill music. After story time we enjoyed activities that followed our theme. The first week we drew flowers on stems, the second week we create tree pictures from torn paper, and the final week we planted our secret garden.
April 30th is Dia Day, a yearly celebration of books, kids, and reading.
We celebrated Dia Day or Children's Day/Book Day with La Cuentista Lista, Kay Weeden. We spent our morning listening, telling stories, and even dancing. Thanks to all the BDM and Trinity classes that came to visit for this special bilingual event - we had a great time!
