August Highlights

 

Kindergarten Readiness

As you visit our exhibits this month, you will notice some connections to academic standards and tips on ways to prepare for Kindergarten. Our tips will remind you of the math, science, social studies, and literacy that abounds at the Museum. We will also demonstrate these standards with a fun mathemagical expedition, art activities, and facilitated play in our Follow That Food gallery. Ask our impact area directors for ways to continue this fun learning through play and with everyday items at home.

License Plate Bingo in Move with the River Gallery – Tuesdays and Thursdays at 11:30a.m.

Mathemagical Expedition in Dig Into Nature Gallery – Wednesdays and Fridays at 11:30a.m.

Satchmo Saturday August 6th Story Time and Sing Along at 10:30a.m. Performance at 11:00a.m.  

Join us to celebrate the birthday of Louis “Satchmo” Armstrong, famous New Orleans trumpeter and singer. We will read biographies about his life and legacy, play lyrics and trivia games, and enjoy listening to a performance by Recreations Brass Band at 11:00 a.m. as they play some of our favorite Satchmo’s songs for us to sing along and dance to together.

Community Kindness Project August 13 at 11 a.m. in Talk and Play Center

Join us Saturday, August 13 for a reading of the empowering story Say Something! by Peter Reynolds. This story teaches children that we need their voice to speak up for themselves and for others to make the world a better place. This special story time takes place in our Talk and Play center, which is free to the public. For more information about our Community Kindness Project, please visit our website. There, you will learn more about our community partners who are also participating monthly, and you will find guiding questions for each story to facilitate meaningful conversations when you and your family read these touching stories together.

Saturday, August 27th at 11:00 a.m. Author Visit in Talk and Play Center

We are thrilled that author Courtney Kelly will join us to read her book Celeste Saves the City, which describes the life of a young girl forced to leave her beloved home as Hurricane Katrina threatens to flood New Orleans. Celeste grows up to become a civil engineer and brainstorms ways to protect the wetlands that slow down flood waters.
