Preschool Storytime

15 Apr

16250904I really liked my book choices this week – fun stories that the kids giggled over all storytime!  I think they’re favorite was Robot Zombie Frankenstein which also happens to be one of my favorites – they thought all the costumes were so silly!  I also chose to use a lot of music from countries around the world to introduce the kids to different instruments, rhythms and sounds.  The group also really loved playing with the scarves, which I was a little surprised about, but they loved throwing them in the air and catching them, doing different movements with them and just watching how they move through the air.  Overall it was a great storytime and I’m excited to see how the kids grow in the next few weeks!

Opening: “Hello Hello” by Mose Se Sengo “Fan Fan,” Putumayo Kids Presents: African Playground (with shaker eggs)

Puppet Meet & Greet: Meet Woolly (monkey puppet)

ASL Sign: Cat (use your thumb and finger to create whiskers near your nose)

Early Literacy Tip: It’s important to expose young children to cultures from around the world.  This can be very easy to do by listening to music, reading books, finding videos online of cultural festivals and parties.
