At the Strauss ECE and Kindergarten, we love books!
Reading aloud is recognized as an important activity leading to language development. As such, we have started our new enrichment program called the Strauss Storytellers. Every Friday, the children in our 2, 3, and Pre-K classrooms will join together in the Katz Family Library and Youth Center to hear two or three books read aloud. You will be invited to choose one of your child’s favorite books that can be read by you, a grandparent, aunt, uncle or even an older sibling.
Rosie Revere, Engineer
A book by Andrea Beaty
Rosie may seem quiet during the day, but at night she's a brilliant inventor of gizmos and gadgets who dreams of becoming a great engineer. When her great-great-aunt Rose (Rosie the Riveter) comes for a visit and mentions her one unfinished goal--to fly--Rosie sets to work building a contraption to make her aunt's dream come true. But when her contraption doesn't fly but rather hovers for a moment and then crashes, Rosie deems the invention a failure. On the contrary, Aunt Rose insists that Rosie's contraption was a raging success. You can only truly fail, she explains, if you quit.
