This week we talked about the letter “E”! I am starting to get sad that next week will be our last storytime for a month, but then I decided it’s ok because I need that time to prepare MORE storytimes to share. First we learned the signs for elephant, egg, eat, and earth.
We sang our welcome song.
We played Little Mouse, Little Mouse.
The first book I read was The Pigeon Finds Hot Dog By: Mo Willems. I had to read this one because our craft tied in with it. And yes, I have been doing a lot of Pigeon books this session, but I enjoy them and so do the kids. Plus, now they’ve heard several stories of the Pigeon so they feel like they know him 🙂
Next we sang and danced to Shakin’ Everywhere By: Jim Gill. For this one I passed out egg shakers and it was a blast! I really, really love egg shakers.
Read How Do Dinosaurs Eat Their Food By: Jane Yolen. Her books are always a hit with the kids.
Next we danced to Tooty Ta By: Dr. Jean. I love to do this song because it’s one of the silliest I know. AND it’s entertaining for the parents to watch their kids, haha.
We ended with our goodbye rhyme.
Our craft this week was cool! The kids got to pick something that their Pigeon found. They came up with some pretty creative ideas. Kites, donuts, peaches, penguins and of course, purple balloons just like mine.
