Toddler Storytime – The Color Red

19 May

red-truckMy first storytime this morning went very well – the kids were very attentive to all the stories which was amazing and although the kids had trouble with they rhymes in Down By the Bay, they still really enjoyed the songs and the adults in the room helped with the rhymes.  At one point a few of the babies in the room had made their way to the storytime room door and looked like they were holding a conference plotting their escape – it was absolutely adorable!  My second group was a little more active with a few kids doing laps around the room while I was reading the stories, but overall the kids still had a lot of fun.  With this group rather than going through the rhymes during the song, I showed the kids each of the rhymes first and that worked much better.  Both groups of kids really liked Red Truck a lot and were cheering for him at the end!  I’m excited for a little bit of a break; we’ll start back up for the summer in the middle of June.
