Parachute Storytime Theme: Emotions

20 Oct


I think overall, my books were a little too old for the group I had for parachute storytime.  But, they did enjoy telling David, “NO!” and were quick to tell me what all the characters were doing that was wrong and how to act correctly, so I took that as a good sign!  They love playing popcorn with the parachute and I think if that’s all we did for 30 minutes, they’d be happy!  They also really liked “We Are the Dinosaurs” by Laurie Berkner – we stomped our feet and shook our parachute just like dinosaurs.

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

Early Literacy Tip: Teaching children ways to deal with frustration will lead to less frustration for both of you!  Try yoga poses!
