Toddler Storytime Theme: Color RED

10 Feb


My storytime was definitely not my favorite today, the kids didn’t really seem to enjoy the books, but were really into our scarf song.  I think part of the reason is because we have a little boy in class with a disability who comes with an adult and an aide and he can be very distracting during the program.  I also think my books were a little too long for my age group – I have a lot of young 2’s which makes anything more than a concept book difficult.  I’m hoping Friday goes better than today!

Opening: “Put Your Hands Up In the Air”

Puppet Meet & Greet: Meet Woolly (monkey puppet)

Early Literacy Tip: Expose children to cultures and people that are different than themselves – a great way to do this is through books!

Book 1: Dragon Dancing by Carole Lexa Schaefer

Transition:5 Little Hearts
Five little hearts All in a row
The first one said, “I love you so”
The second one said, “Will you be my valentine?”
The third one said, “I will, if you’ll be mine.”
The fourth one said, “I’ll always be your friend.”
The fifth one said, “We’ll be friends until the end.”

Wiggles:Once There Was a Snowman
Once was there was a snowman, snowman, snowman
Once there was a snowman
Tall, tall, tall
In the sun he melted, he melted, he melted
In the sun he melted
Small, small, small
