On April 17, 2009 approximately 150 Pre-K students from three local schools visited Odum Library for Read Fest 2009, held in honor of National Library Week. Our goal is to promote a life-long love of reading through a variety of fun reading-related activities.
We had read-a-louds
Some read-a-louds include dancing
We had two puppet shows, with ice cream (yum!)
Students could get their faces painted
with great results
or scary results (spiders are the scariest!)
snakes are scary too!
or not on their faces after all
Students could color
or make bookmarks
Students had fun hula hooping
so did librarians
Students could spin the Chick-fil-A Wheel to win a prize
There was jump roping too.
Eventually the students had to go back to school.
