Colors: Red Toddler Lap Time, 5/30/13

 Colors: Red Toddler Lap Time, 5/30/13

Book: Little Mouse, Red Ripe Strawberry, and the Big Hungry Bear by Audrey and Don Wood
This group didn't seem to understand this book. I think maybe they just weren't quite old enough to get it. There's something about the mouse's face, though, that just gets me every time. 

Song: Four Red Cherries
The kids got into this one, and since it wasn't one we use all the time, we did it three times to give the kids a chance to catch on and participate.

Book: Little Robin Redbreast illustrated by Shari Halpern
The kids were really restless during this book, and no one clapped at the end, or even seemed to notice I had stopped reading.

Rhyme with Stick Puppets: Two Little Red Birds

Song: Bumpin’ Up and Down in My Little Red Wagon

Book: Fire Truck by Peter Sis
One little boy fell instantly in love with this book, and he wound up checking it out at the end of the session. His mom said it would be the first book he ever borrowed from the library! That made my morning, for sure.

Song: Hurry Hurry Drive the Firetruck
The kids always like this one. They did a great job "fighting" the fire.

Rhyme: Ladybug, Ladybug

Rhyme: I’m a Little Ladybug
This was a last-minute addition to story time, so I only did the ladybug verse.

Activities with Foam Butterflies
  • Song: Fly Like a Butterfly
  • Rhyme: Butterflies Up, Butterflies Down
  • Song: There's a Butterfly on My Head
Song: Monkeys on the Bed

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.
