Preschool visit: Snow! (and a bit of zoom too)

Preschool Visit:  The local school district’s preschool came for a storytime visit today.  The preschool is open to anyone, but I believe it focuses on early intervention.  There were a few storytime faces in the crowd, but most of this group aren’t library users.  We just had our first snowfall of the year: 3 inches.  Enough to have some fun…..
attendance:  55 plus 7 teachers
Miss Mouse: was hiding behind snowflakes.
Miss Mouse’s Knock Knock Joke:  Knock Knock. Who’s There?  Snow.  Snow Who?  Snowbody here, we’re outside playing. That is a Sharon original, thank you very much and you’re welcome to use it.
fingerplay:  Clap. Clap your Lap.
Book 1:  Snowmen at Night by Carolyn Buehner. There is a scene in Snowmen at Night where the snowmen zoom down the hill.  Wheeee.
Fingerplay: Hickory Dickory Dock.
Book 2: Moo by David LaRochelle.  Okay, you’ve read all about my successes with Moo.  This was a different group.  I saw the eyes gleam in the two girls who were in my storytime, and I had high hopes for this.  A majority of the kids didn’t get it. I even heard one girl say, “what’s he saying?”  I won’t draw any conclusions today but I found the very different reaction so interesting.  (also, there is a scene in Moo where Cow zooms down a hill…)
Song: Driving in My Car by Ralph Covert
Fingerplay: Roll Roll Sugar Babie.  We did different animals sounds, including a lion.  Roar Roar Roar.
Flannel: Lisa’s Snowman. I can’t find any documentation for it….
Book 3:  Jingle Jingle by NIcola Smee.  Also, there is a scene in Jingle jingle where all the animals zooom down the hill in a sleigh.  Wheeee!
Song:  I’m a Little Teapot/2 Little Blackbirds and Humpty Dumpty by Wiggleworms
