For Children in Grades K-3

Participate in a live-action read aloud of a Scooby Doo Choose Your Own Adventure story. Mrs. Shaia will read a story and you decide where the characters go. Will you follow Shaggy and Scooby down a dark hallway or Velma, Fred and Daphne into a cornfield under a full moon sky? After the reading, we will do an activity or craft related to the story. No need to pack a snack - Mrs. Shaia will provide peanut-free Scooby Snacks.

Game On @ LEF Minds in Motion

At Litchfield High School
For Children in Grades K-8

Come visit Mrs. Shaia at Litchfield Education Foundation’s Minds in Motion Fundraiser. There will be exciting, interactive workshops for every child with every interest, Kindergarten - 8th grade. Adults can attend a keynote and thought-provoking, special-interest workshops. Mrs. Shaia will present a workshop for children in Grades 2 - 3 called Game On! Children will create their own board game with a clear objective using a variety of available possibilities including a spinner, dice, a board, and cards. We’ll look at Ticket to Ride, Scattergories Catergories, Spot It and Codenames for inspiration. Each child will leave the workshop with their own game that has been tested and played to enjoy with their whole family.

Outreach Storytimes for Preschoolers

Each month, Mrs. Shaia, Children’s Librarian, will be bringing her suitcase of storytime themes to Litchfield Headstart, Room to Grow, School on the Green, and the 3-year and 4-year old classes at Litchfield Center School.

Each program is unique, supports the preschool curriculum, and includes new and classic picture books, flannel board stories, fingerplays, musical instruments, puppets and a themed craft. PLUS, Mrs. Shaia brings books from OWL’s extensive collection for the schools to borrow each month!
