Every week, I prepare and present a program geared towards Homeschoolers, ages 7-12. This is a lot of fun! Before I decided to be a librarian, I originally wanted to be a teacher. This weekly program lets me be one for at least an hour a week.
Discovery Club has been renamed, and is now Homeschoolers @ the Library. This fall we will be continuing our Around-the-World series visiting Ancient Egypt and Germany. Our programs begin September 13, 2011 and runs through December 9, 2011. We will take off the week of Thanksgiving.
The programs run approximately 45 minutes to one hour and are geared for ages 6 through 12. We will have hands-on and/or craft projects with each program. Throughout the unit study on Germany, we will be learning some German words and phrases.
Colbern Road has unbelievable upcoming programs as part of our Homeschoolers @ The Library series. Every month, kids can experience a new topic first-hand. These programs supplement a homeschool curriculum, with a focus to Missouri’s Show-Me Standards subject areas. However, they are open to both homeschoolers and traditionally educated children, ages 5-12.
Our new title for the enrichment program, previously called Discovery Club, reflects our library’s support and dedication to learning. MCPL, as an establishment, has made much progress in providing different resources to home-schooled families.
Where do koalas live? How many people live in China? What is Kenya’s official motto? What is Missouri’s state bird? Find the answers to these questions and more at the Colbern Road Branch's next installment of the Homeschoolers @ the Library series.
MCPL now has a new webpage for homeschool information (Homeschoolers @ the Library is the new name for Discovery Club). The webpage includes information on events and online resources. The Raytown Branch will host two events: Arctic Express November 10 and This Your New Year on December the 8th.
Get ready for another installment of our Homeschoolers @ the Library series! Mad Science will be here on Thursday, November 17th at 3 p.m. to play with the forces of nature. Explore the science of motion by playing with rotational forces, a rocket pack, and a rocket car! We promise that you’ll have a "moving" experience.
The Lone Jack Branch has been offering programs to home-educated students for over 15 years. The program has changed its name a few times, as did this category of education. What has not changed here is the desire to make a difference in people’s lives. It seems that we would eventually exhaust the list of topics, but the world is so big, so old, and so diverse!
Homeschoolers @ the Library Presents: The Solar System
Come and unlock the mysteries of the gas giant planets of Jupiter and Saturn or the rocky planets of Mercury, Venus, Mars and Earth. Find out why Jupiter has a great red spot, and find out how Saturn got its rings. Discover why Earth has life and why the other planets don't.
Have you ever wondered what the America of the past was like? On February 23rd, Barbara Hughes will be at the Colbern Road Branch to take us on a journey through our history. Come learn more about the birth of our nation through the stirring tale of Anna Mary Kersallen, an indentured servant, who moved from England to America and became an American revolutionary figure.
