Use a recycled egg carton to make a color sorting game.
Today, we’re making a Sensory Bottle or “Calm Down” Bottle. You only need a few simple items to make these bottles at home. The video is below:
For our sensory bottle, we used glitter and pony beads because that’s what we happened to have on hand. But there are so many options for these bottles. Depending on the size of your bottle, you could use small toys, buttons, beads, small alphabet letters… whatever small plastic items you have on hand. You can also use things like water beads or pom-poms. Get creative!
We have so many amazing resources for kids, parents, and teens. Do you have research for a project you need to do? Need help citing something? Want to find a book on a specific topic? We are here to help!
Come into the library or email Miss Ranea!
We have most textbooks from the Peotone Schools. Textbooks can only be used in the library and are not for check out.
The Monarch Award is designed to encourage children to read critically and become familiar with children's books, authors and illustrators. The these books intended for Kindergardners through 3rd graders.
The award is designed for students in grades 3-5 who are ready for longer titles than found on the Monarch list, but not quite ready for the sophistication of some of the Rebecca Caudill titles. The award may include both timeless classics and current titles, as well as books that have appeared on Monarch and Rebecca Caudill lists.
The Rebecca Caudill Young Readers' Book Award is an annual award given to the author of the book voted most outstanding by students in grades four through eight in participating Illinois schools. A list of 20 books are published in the Spring and the final award winner is chosen from this list.
