Elementary Reader’s Theatre (ERT) for grades 3-8 for the rest of the school year will meet from 5-5:50 p.m. on Wednesdays, beginning February 11 through the end of May, in the Program Room.  Mr Jon Baughan will be the new mentor.

Reader’s theater is a legitimate form of drama with actors using their voices and upper bodies to convey various roles in a script through reading to an audience. It differs from a play in that parts or roles are read rather than memorized. Actors usually stand behind lecterns or music stands and use techniques such as vocal and facial expressions as well as hand and arm movements. Small hand props may be used as well.  And, It’s FUN!

Periodic public performances are presented, participation in these is optional.

Readers earn a stamp on a record card for every 15 minutes that they read to one of our dogs. When he/she has earned 4 stamps, they will receive a “Pawsome Reader” tag to wear as a necklace or use as a zipper tag. If readers complete a second card, they a “Pawsome Reader” dog tag.

The theory is, that by reading out loud to the dog, who doesn’t judge how well the child reads, the child’s self consciousness disappears and she gains the confidence needed to become a better reader.

Patty-Anya-1Patty and Anya will be available on the LAST Wednesday of each month from3:30-5 p.m.

Readers earn a stamp on a record card for every 15 minutes that they read to one of our dogs.  When he/she has earned 4 stamps, they will receive a "Pawsome Reader" tag to wear as a necklace or use as a zipper tag.  If readers complete a second card, they get a “Pawsome Reader” dog tag.

The theory is, that by reading out loud to the dog, who doesn't judge how well the child reads, the child’s self consciousness disappears and she gains the confidence needed to become a better reader.

Readers will need to schedule a 15 minute appointment at the Youth Services Desk or by calling 231-758-3112. Open or cancelled slots will be available on a first-come, first served basis.

There is no charge for this activity

Elementary Reader’s Theatre (ERT) for grades 3-8 for the rest of the school year will meet from 5-5:50 p.m. on Wednesdays, beginning February 11 through the end of May, in the Program Room.  Mr Jon Baughan will be the new mentor.

Reader’s theater is a legitimate form of drama with actors using their voices and upper bodies to convey various roles in a script through reading to an audience. It differs from a play in that parts or roles are read rather than memorized. Actors usually stand behind lecterns or music stands and use techniques such as vocal and facial expressions as well as hand and arm movements. Small hand props may be used as well.  And, It’s FUN!

Periodic public performances are presented, participation in these is optional.

April 30, 2015

????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????Parent/Child LapSits and last about 30-45 minutes.  Parent or Caregivers need to bring the child and sit together to enjoy developmentally appropriate stories, songs (accompanied by banjo and ukulele); finger plays, flannel board presentations and a weekly visit from Puff the Magic Dragon. These programs are targeted at children 18 months to three years old.  Information about parenting, literacy and other family related subjects will be shared periodically during the program.

Due to the developmental needs of this age group, it is preferred that siblings do not attend if at all possible. However, nobody will be turned away if bringing a sibling is the only way for a child to attend. Bringing toys is also discouraged.  This is a “drop-in” program and no sign-up is required.
