Preschool Story Time, 1/18/17

Little Bo Peep, age 1, "helping" Mommy set up for story time. 
Everyone who attended this story time was a repeat visitor. In addition to my girls (ages 1 and 3), there were 3 boys (all around age 2) and two girls (ages 1.5 and probably almost 3). I decided not to do themes for a while, so this was kind of a hodgepodge of books I own and some I borrowed from the library. I ran short, despite reading five books, so the end of the session is really just a sing-along of random favorites. I need to plan longer books for next time!

Opening Song: Story Time is Starting

Book: Here Comes Jack Frost by Kazuno Kohara

Rhyme: Little Jackie Jack Frost
I found several Jack Frost rhymes and songs, but each one had something about it that I didn't like. I finally just pulled a few of them together into my own version. It went like this:

Little Jackie Jack Frost pinched my nose
Little Jackie Jack Frost pinched my toes
I went into my house and I shut the door
Then little Jackie Jack Frost didn't pinch me anymore! 

Book: Under My Hood I Have a Hat by Karla Kuskin and Fumi Kosaka
The ending of this book got a nice giggle from a few people.

Song: Head and Shoulders

Rhyme: This is Big Big Big

Book: Toot Toot Beep Beep by Emma Garcia

Song: The Wheels on the Bus

Song: Mr. Sun

Book: Shape by Shape by Suse MacDonald
I could feel that the audience thought there should be more to this book after the brachiosaurus is revealed. I can't say I disagree.

Song: Stomp Like a Dinosaur (tune)
This was a hit. The motions were just simple enough for two-year-olds. We stomped, flew, and chomped all around.

Song: Here We Go Up Up Up
I threw this in because I knew I still had 10 minutes to go and I wasn't sure how I was going to fill it. It felt out of place to me, but I don't think anyone else noticed.

Song: ABCs / Twinkle Twinkle Little Star

Book: Mary Had a Little Lamb by Sarah Josepha Hale, illustrated by Salley Mavor
The kids were surprisingly into this book, which I did not expect.

Song: The Itsy Bitsy Spider

Song: Chickadee
