This week we did a duck theme in storytime! There are so many great books out there about ducks and the kids always seem to love them. I’ve been waiting and waiting to use the book Stuck By Oliver Jeffers along with the magnetic board I made. I made the book fit the theme this week because a duck gets stuck in the tree (I know, I know, it’s a stretch). Well, this week probably wasn’t the best week to use this. Storytime was insane! Lately I’ve been having a lot of younger siblings come with the appropriate aged kids (3-5yrs) and it just makes it tough because I want them to feel included too. And they want to do everything their older sibling does. Which is to be expected! So needless to say the room gets a bit…noisy. And none of the kids were really paying attention when it was their turn to put a piece on the magnet board. BUT they did seem to have fun, so I guess that’s all that matters! Soooo, to be used again at another time with a smaller crowd. Here is my handout!
Here is the fun craft we did, the kids all LOVED it and giggled when I showed it to them.
