Miss Laura’s Favorites #3

24 Feb

51iJdPufLuL__SX258_BO1,204,203,200_The weather has been so crazy around here that even though we should be on week five of our six week series, we’ve only had our third storytime.  So, needless to say, I haven’t posted many storytime outlines, but we finally had storytime this morning with a large, active crowd and they did surprisingly well all things considered.

I was so excited to hear a family loves the “Bananas Unite” song and has taught the older sister to do it as well!  A lot of the little kids were so excited to be in storytime today and everyone loved our stories – all very different and all very fun!  The kids thought Can You Make a Scary Face? was so funny and one of the girls in our storytime class’s name is Lola so she was so excited to hear her name in a story!  And I even had one of the little boys get so excited about Go! Go! Go! Stop!  He loved matching up the green with go and the red with stop.  Overall, it was a great group of kids and a lot of fun!

Opening: “Put Your Hands Up In the Air”

Puppet Meet & Greet: Meet Woolly (monkey puppet)

ASL Sign: More (use 2 flat “o” hands tap together in front of you)

Early Literacy Tip: It’s important to show diverse characters in the books you read with your children. It’s a great way to open up discussion if your kids have questions about looking or being different.
