Miss Laura’s Favorites #5

10 Mar

9780061123221The kids in storytime this morning, were really great – everyone wanted to help me move things, clean things, distribute things, it was almost too helpful.  But, they were very attentive to the stories, loved the music and did a great job participating.  I had a request for shaker eggs this week, so mid-storytime we switched out “Shoo Fly” for “Shaker Hop” added shaker eggs and the kids loved it!  They absolutely love “Bananas Unite” which is so cute to see all these little kids chopping and mashing bananas.  If you’ve never done a song-book I got a great compliment from a mom today, she said she loves all the books I choose and how interactive I make them.  I told her, books lend themselves to be interactive, you just have to find a way to do it.  We have one more week of storytime, a few short weeks for a break and start back up again at the beginning of April.
