Donna, the Literacy Lady, was here on Fifth St. for our Wednesday morning drop-in. She shared Elder Mabel Mitchell's version of "When Seagull Stole the Sun." The boys and girls were re-introduced to the characters and we all learned some hul'qumi'num words to go along with the story.
Each week during our Early Literacy Drop-In the children are invited to do some centre activities that are related to the stories we have learned. It's a great way for boys and girls to playfully explore and understand stories in more detail.
Story-telling teaches children of all ages about communication skills, about emotions and allows them to build their vocabulary. This week we made sea-urchins using play dough and toothpicks. We also did some alphabet sewing and some sponge painting!

Please come by next Wednesday for another Early Literacy Drop-In 8:45-12:00.
Circle time is at 9:45 ~ on Wednesday November 19th, our friend Jacqueline will be here drumming and singing.
Everyone is welcome!
