Interpreted Program


Saturdays at 2Artists and educators engage children with dramatic renderings of books through the Creating Readers Saturdays at 2 program.

The goal is to link literacy to hands-on activities, to read a book that children connect to a real-life event in which they are players, a book that deepens that experience for children, a book that they can carry with them, a book that they are invested in reading because it evokes memories of a place where they are empowered and engaged learner.

Each week, a book will be chosen which integrates reading with the museum's exhibits.

Saturdays at 2 is funded in part by the NewAlliance Foundation
