The 2015 Early Childhood summer Program, “Every Hero has a Story,” “officially” ended on July 31st! You may still record reading and early literacy activities and claim prizes but we do ask that you do this as soon as possible. We will be putting things away on August 31.
You will have two options for keeping track of you and your child’s reading and literacy activities:
- Paper option. Come to the library, find the Sign-up Station and follow the directions there.
- Online option -You will need to keep track of every title that you read to your child (If you read it more than once, write it down more than once). Just click the link: Every Hero has a Story – Early Childhood Program @ PDL and follow directions. This is the first time that we have tried an online option and, while we’d like to think that there will be no glitches, we know better. Please feel free to ask questions!
With the paper option you’ll receive a Reading Record/Calendar sheet, bookmarks, Early Literacy Activities Sheet and a sticker when you sign up. Whichever method you choose, please do not do both of them..it will cause confusion for all of us. Thanks!
Record-keeping will involve keeping track of the number of books read as well as trying 8 of early literacy activities. You may also, if you wish, keep track of the titles that you and your child have shared.
Prize bags are provided at a couple of levels for the child, as are certificates to document you and your child’s achievements:
- Level I – 20 Books.
- Level II – 32 Books AND 8 early literacy activities.
You will receive a ticket in your folder if using the paper option and an email if you’re keeping track on line when your certificates and prize bags are ready.
With the exception of Babies and Books, this program will run until 5 p.m. on Friday, July 31.
