Future SRC Programs

An email from Anne Kruger from the state sent out a request for help on SRC 2011 ideas.  Email her with yours by November 15th!  The theme is One World Many Stories.  As usual, they're looking for ideas on school visits and promotion, library decorations, family literacy and original puppet shows for 1 or 2 puppeteers.  Some other thoughts to inspire you:
  • language and literature from around the world
  • folk and fairy tales across cultures
  • nursery rhymes from around the world
  • travel, destinations, pen pals
  • reading race, different countries each week
  • games and dances from around the world
  • how people live like traditions, food, clothing, homes, different environments (I can already think of a great book: What the World Eats by Peter Menzel!)
  • Art, inventors and artists from other countries
  • Global citizens: universal themes, values, ideas, immigrants, refugee stories, peace, conflict
