The Human Alphabet

The Human Alphabet

At home, home silly fun trying to spell short words using only your body! This activity introduces the concept that words are made up of letters, and we use only 26 letters to form many different words. Take a look at the picture book The Human Alphabet by Pilobolus and see the entire alphabet created only by human bodies!

No Pirates Allowed! Said Library Lou by Rhonda Gowler Greene

syndetics-lcHey kids! Do you like to look for treasure? Join Big Pirate Pete and his crew when they look for treasure at the Seebreezy Library. They have no idea how to act in a library, so Library Lou shows them what they are supposed to do. She also helps them find the treasure, which is a different one than they expected. Funny!
