Sensory Story Time Theme: Polka-Dots

9 Oct

Copy of Sensory Friendly Storytime Theme-Today I have four storytimes at the Montgomery County Intermediate Unit where children with disabilities go to preschool.  I see a wide range of disabilities, so the best thing for me to do is bring great tried and true storytime books that are interactive and fun!  The kids really loved Press Here which is quickly becoming one of my most favorite storytime books ever!  It works one-on-one and with a large group and the kids find the book absolutely magical.  That by interacting with it, it changes what is happening – it’s so cool to see!  We did a lot of counting which was great too and the kids had a lot of fun playing with the bubbles.  I’m going to be using the same lesson plan for my sensory storytime on Saturday in the library and hope to get some kids to come to that program as well.  It’s a lot more difficult to get families that have children with disabilities to come into our library, so we’re going to try again and hope for the best!  At least I know this program has worked with the kids today!

We wave goodbye like this,

We clap our hands for all our friends,
We wave goodbye like this.

We clap goodbye like this,
We clap our hands for all our friends,
We clap goodbye like this.

We stomp goodbye like this,
We stomp goodbye like this,
We clap our hands for all our friends,
We stomp goodbye like this.
