Early Literacy Storytime
attendance: 23 (12 kids + 11 adults)
Letter of the Day: C
Miss Mouse: was hiding behind Cows
What is hiding in the sock? A car (we have objects we’re hiding in a sock. Before story time starts, we have kids feel the object without telling us what they think it is. This is the time we talk about the different things in the sock. Everyone pretty much knew it was the car.)
fingerplay: Clap, clap your lap.
Book 1: The Cow That Laid an Egg by Andy There’s a lot of goodness in this book. First, it’s silly, which is paramount. There are delicious phrases in it too: pleased as punch and other goodness. Also, great for predicting and asking questions.
Fingerplay: Roll Roll Sugar Babies… also, we moo moo moo-moo-moo’d our way through it!
Book: A Birthday for Cow by Jan Thomas
Song : Drivin in My Car by Ralph Covert.
Book: Wow, It’s a Cow! by Trudy Harris
Lucy Maud’s Favorite Word: Caterpillar. (We placed the word on the flannel board) Then she asked the kids what their favorite C word was. The consensus: cupcake
The Alpha Boogie: You put your C up, you put your C down, you put your C in the middle and you shake it all around ….
Craft: We made a simple paper cow
I’d give us a C+(pun intended). I think it was a good first effort. There are a few things I’d like to coordinate better. But as a first attempt, it was pretty good.
