Narrating Tales of Preschool Storytime

"There are no happy endings. Endings are the saddest part, So just give me a happy middle and a very happy start." -Shel Silverstein

Alligator Storytime

I want to start adding all my storytimes that I use weekly so that other people may get ideas from the things I’ve done.  I decided it would just be easier to upload the handout I give to the parents rather than typing it all out.  It’s includes everything I do!  I also include a color sheet on the back of my handouts to go with the theme for that week.  Then, I will just add a picture and short description of the craft we did.  Feel free to print and use any templates I provide, I’m here to share.  I hope this is helpful to some of you, and please let me know if you have any questions!

The alligators are cut from cardstock (more sturdy) and punched with tiny holes for the brass fastener to go in.  Every kid is given about 10 triangle-shaped teeth to glue on along with a googly eye, or you could just draw it on.  I don’t worry too much about the triangles being exactly the same size, the kids don’t mind!


Flannel Friday: Five Little Jellyfish

Here is a simple rhyming flannel board you can use for various themes.  It’s Five Little Jellyfish!  I made their legs from ribbon, which got slightly squished in storage, but I still think they look cute!

Five Little Jellyfish


5 little jellyfish swimming by the shore, the yellow one got lost and that left 4.

4 little jellyfish swimming in the sea, the blue one swam far, far away and that left 3.

3 little jellyfish in the ocean so blue, the red one took a seahorse ride and that left 2.

2 little jellyfish swimming in the sun, the orange one took a dive and that left 1.

1 little green jellyfish swimming all alone, it was time for him to go home and that left none!
