attendance: 32 It was a very young story time — I would say the average ages for 2-1/2 years old. Kinda young …. and it turns out the group participation ascpect of my plans sort of sunk to the ground….
Miss Mouse was wearing her cardigan sweater and boa. We talked about Mother’s Day
Miss Mouse: was hiding behind the blue flower
fingerplay: hickory dickory dock
Book 1: Over in the Meadow by Paul Galdone. I’ve never done this book in story time and I think I picked the wrong Saturday to do it. This group was too young and they just didn’t feel the rhymes and pattern. I love the pictures!
Song: I’m a Little Teapot by Wiggleworms
Book: Knock Knock, Who’s There? by Tad Hills I like this book so much. It’s funny yelling Knock knock….
Flannel Story: Monkey Face by Frank Asch. I know you aren’t surprised to hear that I did monkey face. It’s truly one of my favorite stories to tell. and…It was wonderful to see families who didn’t know the story experience it today.
Song 2: Put Your Finger on by Parachute Express
… I had waffles for breakfast which inspired:
Flannel #2:Flip Flap Jack Wouldn’t that make a great breakfast for mom tomorrow?
Book 3: If You’re Happy and You Know it by David Carter I really wish Scholastic would reprint this…
Titles I didn’t use but intended to (Sometimes 30 minutes isn’t enough):
- Book: Owl Babies by Martin Waddell
- Song: Mama Don’t Allow by Wiggleworms
- Flannel: M-O-M-M-Y the group was too young to sing a song of letters…
