I was going to say

Category: Daily Happenings | Posted: Fri May 12, 2006 4:28 am

I was going to say that I was done with the summer reading program plans. Today, I typed them all, there are 8 of them, and e-mailed them to Dan at the library. He printed them out.
But, we still have to make copies for the board meeting next week and we have to make some copies for the Youth Services meeting next week. Dan is going to make copies for his boss and the county librarian. Then, we will need extra copies for volunteers. It's a good thing the library has a copy machine. It's still not exactly free since we pay for materials but we aren't paying 10 cents a copy to someone.
Anyway, the basic plans are done. They are still subject to revision and additions. We have to come up with team games besides the scavenger hunt because we decided to choose permanent teams at the first meeting and have them stay together for the whole reading program. Prizes will be individual and by teams, too. I haven't exactly figured that one out but Dan said it so it must be so.
Next job is to find folders for each child that registers so they have their forms in one place. When they return their books they will list them on their reading charts and then Dan or a volunteer will award the points and as the points add up they can purchase prizes from the prize board.
I need to have a box for each week so craft supplies, etc can be gathered before the weekly program so things are ready when the kids come. Kids get antsy when they have to wait for you to find something or wait for you to decide what to do next. Keep them busy and enthused about the program and they have fun and enjoy themselves and come back the next week.
Everyone has committed to a program and all have offered the service for free. Some of the large city libraries pay a lot of money for people to come do programs and I bet ours are just as good and the kids don't care one way or the other.
Maybe people don't want to do programs for free for a lot of kids. We will have 35 or 40 kids, maybe. That is a lot of kids because our room isn't all that big. Dan and Mary ordered prized and Dan said he ordered all the craft supplies on my list so we should be about set. We can't order or buy food for fun day but we can amass snacks for each week. Animal crackers, animal shaped cookies, dog bone shaped cookies, we'll see what comes our way. Do you think licorice strings would be okay for snake week?
I hope things go okay. We have our plans ready. Now, we will get all antsy waiting for it to begin. I hope we don't nit-pick and make changes. When it's done, leave it alone. Dooley

I think licorice strings are a very cute idea for snake week! You could also use gummy worms too!! Your program sounds so exciting! I think the kids will have a great time! Sounds like ya'll have done a great job! Good Luck! I can't wait to hear how it goes!

Such a lot of effort to organise this but it sounds like you have everything under control Dooley.

By the way what does 'antsy' mean? I looked it up in the Gnomish Dictionary and couldn't find it anywhere!
