Parachute Storytime Theme: Construction

13 Oct

18377674I had a great sized crowd for my parachute storytime on Monday. The kids were really attentive to the stories and pointed out little details that I hadn’t even noticed.  They definitely loved the construction theme and really enjoyed yelling out the colors in It’s an Orange Aardvark.  And as for the parachute play, the kids had such a great time shaking the parachute and even when we tried something new, walking in a circle holding the parachute the kids had a lot of fun!

Opening: “Shake Your Body Down” The Ultimate Laurie Berkner Band – Laurie Berkner Band

Early Literacy Tip: Don’t forget – don’t replace difficult words in the stories you read!  Use those rich vocabulary words and explain what it means to your child.

Transition: “ABC” Jackson 5 (popcorn)

Book 2: Digger Dog by William Bee

Transition: “Spin Again” Jim Gill Sings Do Re Moe on his Toe Leg Knee – Jim Gill (spin around in a circle holding the parachute, stop and shake slow up and down)
