2009-08-27-Kick off Party at Merchants!

We had a wonderful night at Merchants Tea House tonight to kick off the trip. David Samm emcee'd the program in front of a packed house of about 20 people.

David described this year's trip, how the Munsch a Bunch project got started, and showed slides of last year's trip.
Helen, David, Alan, and Sheralyn then acted out a Munch Book "David's Father" to the delight of the crowd.

Sheralyn is not sure she likes David's dad - THE GIANT!

It's pretty good to have a Giant as a friend!

They all turn out to be pretty good friends!
Mrs. Ford read her poem

"If you Give a Baby a Book"

If you give a baby a storybook, they will want to open it up.

And when they open it up, they will want to see the pictures.

An when they see the pictures, they will want to turn the page.

And when they turn the page, they will want to hear the story.

And when you help them with the story, they will want to hear it again and again.

And someday they will grow up, and read to a baby - just like someone read to them.

And that is what early Literacy is all about......

To top off the evening, Mrs. Hamblin read the Munsch Book, "Love you Forever"

Don't miss our departure from St. Pat's School on Wednesday morning, September 3, 2009 at 9:00!!

Departure 9:30 ish...
