Pre-K Class Visit, 9/15

I have a couple of Pre-K groups that plan to come to the library for story times on a monthly basis throughout this school year. This morning, I did my first one for the month of September, and I used a theme of apples. I've decided to start doing themes for preschool story times, because it makes my life easier, and - in theory, at least - makes the story time more organized. We'll see how it goes.

In the meantime, here is today's order of events:

Opening Song: Hello, how are you?
Song: If You'd Like to Read a Book
Book: Applesauce Season by Eden Ross Lipson, illustrated by Mordicai Gerstein

Rhyme: Blue is the Lake

Book: Ducking for Apples by Lynne Berry, Hiroe Nakata (2010)

Song: Hands Are For Clapping 

Flannel Board Rhyme: Five Little Apples
 (I did  the version with the animals, not with the angry wind.)

Song: ABCD Medley


Goodbye Song:
 We Wave Goodbye Like This
