Hello December –

Greetings from the Sheridan County Museum.

Tidbit Saturday!

 Tidbit is held at the Sheridan County Museum at 10am, unless otherwise stated. The tidbit program consists of a featured book read and a lesson with an activity for children of all ages. Parents/Guardians must remain with their kiddos. 

December 14:
This old fashioned Christmas Tidbit will start the day with kids learning about oranges, cloves, and traditional ornaments and turn into something wonderful!

Please ensure all children are signed
up by the Wednesday before Tidbit
so everyone can participate! 
*These are indoor activities*

Helen will be discussing the Churches of early Sheridan. This series is free and open to the public.

Did you know that the museum has an Amazon Smile charity list? In it we have a host of items that we could use at the museum! 

This month we’re requesting donated books from our list. Reading is an important part of children’s development and these books will be used during the museum’s Tidbit programming.

Between the ages of four and nine, your child will have to master some 100 phonics rules, learn to recognize 3,000 words with just a glance, and develop a comfortable reading speed approaching 100 words a minute. He must learn to combine words on the page with a half-dozen squiggles called punctuation into something – a voice or image in his mind that gives back meaning. (Paul Kropp, 1996)

*The museum’s Lecture Series is $5.00 per person or free to current Sheridan County Museum and Sheridan County Historical Society members.
Lecture Series are held at the Sheridan County Museum.
