Weekly Storytime Returns to The Domes, Oct. 10–Nov. 7
Each session, held at the Education Center, will be led by Paula Zamiatowski, Conservatory Educator.
Milwaukee, WI (Sept. 19, 2016) – Young children will enjoy stories and related activities Mondays from Oct. 10 –Nov.7, from 10:30-11 a.m., at the Mitchell Park Domes, 524 S. Layton Blvd. The program is free with regular admission.
Each session, held at the Education Center, will be led by Paula Zamiatowski, Conservatory Educator. She will read two to three stories, engage the children and parents in indoor or outdoor activities related to the story, and provide handouts for families to take home as a springboard for explorations.
“Nature and literacy go hand in hand,” Zamiatowski said. “We make the introduction to science and reading fun for the family.”
Oct. 24, “Terrific Trees” combines readings of This Tree Counts by A. Formento, Room for Bear by C. Gavin, and Little Tree by L. Long, with an activity that has participants acting out the roles of a tree’s root system, branches and leaves.
Nov. 7, “Beneath Your Feet” uses Roots by K. Kudlinski as a lead-in to meeting live worms, slugs, millipedes and snails, up-close with magnifiers.
