We created blackout poetry; an edible book craft, which was quite tasty. We had a scavenger hunt in the library and then to wrap up this awesome week, we had an Alice in Wonderland party! We got to dress up as our favorite storybook character. We had drinks and cookies to snack on. We had to pin the smile on the Cheshire Cat too!
The month of October is pretty busy! Halloween isn’t the only thing in October. October is also Breast Cancer Awareness month, LGBT History month and Emotional Intelligence Awareness Month to name a few. As always, these books in the picture are only a few but we have more on our shelves here at Richard Burges.
Some quick facts about these issues:
- 1 in 8 U.S. women, and 1 in 1000 U.S. men will develop invasive breast cancer over the course of their lifetime.
- Coming Out Day is on October 11.
- Emotional intelligence can be learned. Through a process called “plasticity,” the brain changes as individuals practice new emotional intelligence strategies
