TIPS FOR EARLY LEARNING:
Look for shapes while you go for a walk. Ask your youngsters, “What shapes are the signs?” “Can you find a circle, a triangle, or a star?” Shapes are all around us, on the sidewalk, on buildings, on vehicles and in nature.
DRAW & TALK:
Talk to you child as they draw. Ask open-ended questions that can’t be answered with a simple “yes” or “no”. What are you drawing? How did you think of that? Why did you choose that color? Can you tell me a story about your picture? Have fun drawing your own picture and model answering your own questions.
CREATIVE WRITING CONTEST:
The Friends of the Palisades Library are sponsoring a writing contest for grades 1-12 that is open to all youth in Los Angeles. Entries can be short stories, essays or poetry.
