Preschool Story Time, 1/25/17

Our story time group was small this week, since the weather was nice. In attendance were my own girls (ages 3 and 1), a three-year-old boy, and two little girls around two. I decided to stick with my trend of unthemed story times, and it made planning feel so much easier.

Opening Song: Story Time is Starting

Book: Tinyville Town Gets to Work! by Brian Biggs
This was kind of long and a bit technical for toddlers, but they loved it. I think it was the combination of transportation and community helpers that really grabbed their attention.

Song: The Wheels on the Bus

Book: Titch by Pat Hutchins
I think this was the only time I read this book at story time and felt that it went over well. I think 18-24 months is really the sweet spot for this story, and most of the kids were in that range.

Song: Sing a Song of Opposites
This song was a lot of fun, and even more so for me because my one-year-old started doing the motions along with me.

Song: Head and Shoulders

Song: Mr. Sun

Book: Pug Meets Pig by Sue Lowell Gallion, illustrated by Joyce Wan
The kids like the illustrations for this one. This is exactly the kind of book I have been wanting for this group - short, but with a bit of plot.

Rhyme: Wiggle Fingers

Song: Itsy Bitsy Spider

Book: The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle
I am not sure I have ever read this at story time. I actually found it difficult to hold the smaller pages open, and doubly so because some of the kids moved their seats mid-story and I had to move the book to accommodate them.

Song: Butterfly Gals
I love this song. This group did too.

Song: Chickadee
