Parachute Storytime Theme: Characters with Names that Start with the Letter “C”

4 Nov

cvr9781416979067_9781416979067_lgI’m not really sure what’s happening but every week I have fewer and fewer kids for Parachute Storytime.  It worked out well for this week as I chose extra long books (even though it probably wasn’t the best choice).  All my books had the common theme that the characters’ names began with the letter “c”  The kids really liked seeing The Cat in the Hat even though the book lasts forever!  But, what they really wanted to do was play under the parachute while the adults shook it (which we did)!  And if you haven’t read C. R. Mudgeon, do your self a favor and read it right away!

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

Early Literacy Tip: Did you know? The library has pulled alphabet, counting, colors and shape books into a separate concept book area for easy access.
