gold-star-graphicSTORY TIME – Stars

ASL Sign: Stars (using “g” fingers point to the sky and shift hands back and forth)

Opening

  • Traditional: Put Your Hands Up In the Air & Open Shut Them
  • Parachute: Parachute Bop (Shakin’ the Chute)

Book 1: Stars by, Mary Lyn Ray

*** I loved this story!  It was about remembering that you are as special as a star!  In the story, the children are reminded to carry a star in their pocket to always remember how special they are, after we read this story I gave each child a small yellow star that I cut out of cardstock to keep in their own pockets!  They loved getting something special at story time!

Transition

  • Traditional: 5 Little      Monkeys Jumping on the Bed
  • Parachute: Popcorn (Battu ~ Putumayo Kids Presents: African Playground)

Book 2: Astronaut PiggyWiggy by, Christyan and Diane Fox

*** This is such a quick little story about PiggyWiggy’s imagination!  It’s a quick read which makes it perfect for story time for the little ones!

Transition (changes weekly)

  • Traditional: Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star (with scarves)
  • Parachute: Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star

Book 3: Bear in a Square by, Stella Blackstone

*** This story is actually about shapes and counting, but it’s perfect because the last shape to count are 10 stars.  The kids enjoyed finding the shapes and counting together.

Closing

  • Traditional: Shake Your Sillies Out Puppet Show
  • Parachute: Freeze!! (Shakin’ the Chute)
