Toddler Storytime – Themeless and Fun!

28 Apr


I don’t know what was going on this morning, but my kids were absolutely amazing in storytime!  They loved Mighty Dads (we created hand movements for each type of truck), loved saying “hello” to the pizza man and really boogied with Shake, Rattle, & Roll.  Overall, the kids just did a great job listening to the stories, enjoying the songs and the adults were participating as well.  I was a little concerned about doing Mighty Dads if there were kids who didn’t have a dad, but the story really focuses on helping and only mentions dad twice, so although I did use it, we didn’t really focus on the dad part, and the kids loved all the trucks!

Opening: “Put Your Hands Up In the Air”

Puppet Meet & Greet: Meet Woolly (monkey puppet)

ASL Sign: Pizza (use your flat hand to “eat” like a slice of pizza)

Early Literacy Tip: Talk with your kids about your daily or weekly schedule, take them with you when you run errands and use the time together to share vocabulary words and learn how to interact with the people in your neighborhood!
