Toddler Storytime Theme: Fun Read Alouds

11 Nov

818853For storytime this week, I tried my hand at a little Spanish with the story, Counting Ovejas, which if you’re like me is a great story for adding a bilingual element that is not too difficult.  You just need to know your numbers, colors and the word “ovejas” which is sheep in Spanish.  I have a dad who brings his daughter every week who are Hispanic and I think he was really excited to hear Spanish in storytime.  I didn’t get the chance to speak with him after storytime, but when I pulled the book out he was very excited.  The kids loved Whose Baby Am I? and guessing the animal babies.  And anytime I “sing aloud” a book – the kids get really into it!

Opening: “Put Your Hands Up In the Air”

Puppet Meet & Greet: Meet Woolly (monkey puppet)

Early Literacy Tip:

Book 1: Counting Ovejas by Sarah Weeks

Transition:5 Little Leaves

Five little leaves so bright and gay,
Were dancing in a tree one day.
The wind came blowing through the town,
One little leaf came tumbling down.


Wiggles:The Acorn Song

I’m an acorn small and round
lying on the cold, cold, ground
people always step on me
that is why I’m cracked you see
I’m a nut (clack, clack)
I’m a nut (clack, clack)
I’m a nut, I’m a nut, I’m a nut (clack, clack)
