Preschool Story Time, 5/10/17


Opening Song: Story Time is Starting

Book: Splash Splash by Jeff Sheppard, illustrated by Dennis Panek
I bought this book specifically for my story time stash, but this group didn't take to it. I wanted them to echo the animals' sounds, but ended up not even asking them to do so because they seemed so quiet and reserved. I did, however, get the parents (and my own kids) to dutifully make all the animal sounds on the last page.

Rhyme: Blue is the Lake

Book: Blue on Blue by Dianne White, illustrated by Beth Krommes
I think the parents like this one. It was harder to tell about the kids.

Song: I Like to Feel the Raindrops Fall

Song: Put Your Hands Up High

Song: Head and Shoulders

Book: This is the Sunflower by Lola M. Schaefer, illustrated by Donald Crews
I have never had great luck with this book at story time, but it went over better at this session than any other time I have read it.

Song: Mr. Sun

Songs with Shaker Eggs:


Book: Mother Mother I Want Another by Maria Polushkin Robbins, illustrated by Diane Dawson
We own the original version of this, and the illustrations are really too small for story time. The punchline also went right over the head of all the kids - and most of the adults, too. If I were ever to use it again, I'd probably get the newer edition from the library even though I am typically against re-illustrating old books.

Song: Chickadee
