Slavic Story Time

On September 17th, 2016, the Russian, East European, and Eurasian Center hosted a program called Slavic Story Time at the Urbana Free Library. The program, held once a semester, introduces small children in the Champaign-Urbana community to the countries and cultures of Russia, Eastern Europe, and Central Asia through stories, songs, and crafts. At this fall’s Slavic Story Time, graduate students Madeline Artibee and Stephanie Chung presented on Russia. Madeline read the Russian folk tale “Sasha’s Matrioshka Dolls,” while Stephanie helped the children and their parents sing the Russian Happy Birthday Song. They both assisted in the making of paper matryoshka dolls. Everyone had a fun time. We at REEEC were delighted to once again work with the Urbana Free Library to promote the study of our region.
