Fun with Math for Parents and Children

Time: 10:00 am-10:45 am
Place: Keene Public Library, Youth Program Room, Keene, NH
Price: Free
Ages: Birth-5

This Every Child Ready to Read® @ your library® workshop is for parents, grandparents, childcare providers --and their children from birth to age five.  The workshop presents five important early literacy practices along with interactive math activities that parents and caregivers can use to help children learn more about the world, acquire new vocabulary, and develop other early literacy skills.
Before children can learn to read, they must develop a range of early literacy skills. Learning these skills, which begins at birth, has a long-term impact on children's reading achievement and academic success. Children who enter school with well-developed early literacy skills have an advantage; they are ready to learn to read.
The Association for Library Service to Children (ALSC) and the Public Library Association (PLA) worked with Dr. Susan B. Neuman and Dr. Donna Celano nationally-known researchers and educators to develop the Every Child Ready to Read® @ your library® @ your library® workshops and materials.

Windham Orchestra: Russian Festival

Time: 7:30 pm-8:30 pm
Place: Landmark College, 1 River Rd., Putney, VT (about 25 miles from Keene)
Price: n/a
Ages: All

This concert is built around three Russian composers and a brilliant young artist from our region.
Hugh Keelan, Director; featuring Mathew Woodard, violin.
Stravinsky’s Violin Concerto in D (1931)
Stravinsky’s Firebird Suite
Tchaikovsky’s Overture-Fantasy Romeo and Juliet
Matthew Woodard will play (on a Douglas Cox instrument!) Stravinsky’s Violin Concerto, a touching and invigorating masterpiece that references the circus’ crisp, frolicking rhythms, and Bach, through glowing melody and extravagant ornamentation.
Matthew will also conduct Glinka’s lively overture to Ruslan and Lyudmilla.
Tchaikovsky’s glorious symphonic poem Romeo and Juliet, all youthful ardor and passion, and Stravinsky’s Firebird Suite complete this sumptuous program. The Firebird perfectly complements the Violin Concerto: aching, magical tenderness, infernal dances and breathtaking climaxes in Stravinsky’s early work, wry subtle humor and warmest affection in his later.
Friday, June 8, 7:30 pm, Landmark College, Putney, VT
Sunday, June 10, 3 pm, Latchis Theatre, Brattleboro, VT
