In 1909 one of the largest female American strikes of that time took place in New York! This week at Little New-Yorkers we will read about a young woman named Clara in Brave Girl. She was not only brave but also strong, determined, and a leader! Afterwards, we’ll create a craft project.
Little New-Yorkers in December
Oskar and the Eight Blessings by Tanya Simon and Richard Simon, Illustrated by Mark Siegel
Tuesday, December 4, and Friday December 7, 3:30 pm
New York City is full of beautiful, kind moments, especially during the holiday season. This week at Little New-Yorkers we will explore the city through Oskar’s eyes while reading Oskar and the Eight Blessings. During Hanukkah and Christmas Eve, Oskar experiences many acts of kindness while walking through the city. In the holiday spirit, we will create a craft project to share as a special gift with someone we cherish and love.
Snowy Day by Ezra Jack Keats
Tuesday, December 11, and Friday December 14, 3:30 pm
One of the best parts of winter is snow! Seeing everything covered in a blanket of white is beautiful. What is more delightful than crunching through fresh snow, building a snowman, and afterwards, drinking hot chocolate? What do you like to do when it snows? Let’s find out what Peter in The Snowy Day likes to do when it snows. After reading, we’ll create snow globes as our craft!
Swan by Laurel Snyder, Illustrated by Julie Morstad
Tuesday, December 18, and Friday, December 21, 3:30 pm
Whether it’s hearing a symphony or watching a ballet, performing arts can entertain us, enlighten us, and inspire us. Ballerina Anna Pavlova was inspired to become a dancer while watching a ballet when she was just a girl. When she saw the first dancers take the stage, she felt as though she was entering a fairyland! After reading about Anna in Swan, we will create wings as an art craft so we know how to fly once we arrive in Anna’s fairyland.
