Preschool Parachute Storytime – Week #1

4 Feb

This is my first opportunity to offer a storytime for preschoolers! And it’s definitely my first time offering a parachute storytime for this age group. I was excited because this age group allows me to do more with the parachute because they can follow more directions than the toddlers. And our storytime was so much fun! I didn’t have to enforce my “FREEZE!” rule, even when they were playing under the parachute. The kids were great, very interactive and had so much with the parachute play!
