Outreach Round-Up, 11/29/12 - 12/19/12
Reader's Theater: How to Steal a Dog
Notes: The script is kind of a teaser for the novel. The kids told me they loved the script, and they even fought over the one copy of the book we had, but no one wanted to borrow it in the end.
Book Talk: Aldo Zelnick Comic Novels
I read aloud two sections - one from the first book, and one from the most recent, Finicky. The teacher loved them, but none of the books were checked out.
Book: Dragon's Merry Christmas by Dav Pilkey
Song with ukulele: Jingle Bells
Notes: The kids loved the story, and they loved singing Jingle Bells. They also enjoyed exploring the patterns on the carpet in the story room.
Books: Snip Snap Snow, One Mitten, Under My Hood I Have a Hat, Here Comes Jack Frost
Songs: Five Little Snowmen Riding on a Sled, One Red Mitten, Mary's Wore Her Blue Scarf, Head and Shoulders, If You’re Happy and You Know It
Notes: This was the first time I brought props to this group. It won't be the last. They loved the mittens and scarves.
Books: Owl Moon, Lemonade in Winter
Song: If You'd Like to Read a Book, Moon Moon Moon, Hat, Coat, Pants, and Shoes, These Are My Glasses
Notes: This class loved hooting like the great horned owl.
Books: Owl Moon, Lemonade in Winter, The Snow Globe Family
Song: If You'd Like to Read a Book, Moon Moon Moon, These Are My Glasses
Notes: This group requested more books than singing. I could indulge them because I didn't have a class right after them. Their favorite was probably Lemonade in Winter.
