Preschool Story Time, 6/14/17

The story time I performed on June 14th was my last one for the foreseeable future! With baby #3 due to arrive in mid-October, I won't be available to volunteer at the church anymore, and with my oldest already starting to read, I'm going to be shifting gears away from public story time and more toward our own homeschool. Since I won't be blogging here much, if you are interested in the musings of a homeschooling Catholic mom,  you are welcome to follow me over at Read-at-Home Mom.

Book: All the World by Liz Garton Scanlon
I would never read this to a large group, but for our small intimate setting, it was perfect. My three-year-old loves this book, and I think she enjoyed sharing it with her friends. I was impressed by how much captivated the toddlers were - quieter books do sometimes work with 18-month-olds.

Song: Sunny Day

Rhyme: Blue is the Lake

Book: Little Excavator by Anna Dewdney
The rhythm of this book, the popular subject matter, and the brightly colored illustrations make it ideal for story time. It went over really well.

Songs with Shakers:

Book: Butterfly Butterfly by Petr Horacek
The surprise pop-up at the end of this book is always a hit - especially with families who have never seen it before.

Song: Fly Like a Butterfly
I kept the Butterfly Butterfly book open to the last page and moved its wings a bit as we sang this song.

Song: Butterfly Gals

Book: Sleepy Oh So Sleepy by Denise Fleming

Song: Moon Moon Moon

Song: Mr. Sun

Song: Chickadee
