I did Storytime for the Very Young on my own this time around. It was fun to be in charge of everything. It reminded me of when I was a teacher. The kids for this particular storytime are very laid back but they are seem to be enjoying the program. They often smile and pay attention really well. I did a fun little cow puppet song. The “Cow on the Farm Goes Moo, Moo, Moo” song which is the cow puppet version of the “Wheels on the Bus” song. I really like having animal sounds in storytimes. It is really fun to see the children make their sounds.
After the storytime, I spent the afternoon with the youth volunteers and also did a display for my site supervisor. The theme for the display was “See the artist within” so I did a simple google image search for different artists and put together a small poster. I also made some changes to my E-book, gadget, and computer display.
After finishing up my displays, I taught two classes. One class for getting E-books for a Kindle Fire HD. Since the Kindle Fire HD is a tablet device, it was really easy to show my student how to get e-books on it. All that is needed to get books is the OverDrive App. We finished with little issues except for maybe some forgotten passwords which I could recover for her.
The last session wasn’t at all related to e-books or gadgets and not really computers that much. My student wanted help with applying for a job online. I could find a few jobs for him and then we started the electronic application. He wasn’t prepared to finish the application because he didn’t bring his resume and cover letter with him but I could get him started. I will have another session with him soon.
