Pajama Story Time, 10/17/12
This is my new favorite preschool read-aloud. I love this book, and so does everyone else I've shared it with.
This was one of my favorite books when I was a kid. I used to read it to myself over and over again in the mornings before anyone else in the house was awake. I still love that page where the mice move into the blanket and chew up the shooting star. The kids seemed to like it, too, though I made sure to explain that the quilt belonged to two different girls, something that was not always clear to me.
Song: Sing a Happy Song
Rhyme: Two Little Teddy Bears
Every family can relate the bedtime hunt for a favorite toy or blankie, even though the kids in this group claimed it has never happened to them.
Song: Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star
Song: Moon Moon Moon
I have never read Minerva Louise books in story time because I always think the humor is too subtle. This one is one of the more straight-forward ones, and it did get some good laughs.
Song with Puppets: Goodnight by the Laurie Berkner Band
I use the same hello and goodbye songs at almost every session. Click here for the tunes and words. For descriptions of each of my story times, click here.
