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

Owl Storytime

This week we talked about owls in storytime!  Here is my handout:

Owl Storytime Handout

For the craft I found a really great idea on Pinterest that I wanted to use.  Instead of using paint we used giant ink pads.  They worked out so well too!  Then we just had baby wipes to clean everyone’s hands up.  All the kids definitely had a good time with this craft.  Here are the templates that I made.  Feel free to print them out for yourselves.

Bedtime Storytime

This week our storytimes began again!  My first theme was Bedtime.  Here is my handout:

And here is the craft we did.  It went along with the book Dinosaur VS Bedtime By: Bob Shea.  The kids loved roaring along with me and they especially loved creating their own versions which included: Dino VS a yoyo, Dino VS mud, Dino VS Pingu (he’s a penguin), Dino VS mouse, Dino VS cat.  They kids had a lot of fun with it and I had fun seeing what they came up with.

Here is a PDF of the color sheet for those of you who would like to use it:

Flannel Friday: You’re Face Will Surely Show It By: Jim Gill (Magnetic Board)

Here is a song from Jim Gill that I like to use in storytime called You’re Face Will Surely Show It.  It’s a really fun song because we get to show all kinds of expressions with our faces.  Happy, sad, scared, mad, sleepy, cold, surprised, and silly.  You really have to listen and pay attention so you can hear what expression is coming up next.  I decided to print out the different faces and put them on our magnet board so the kids can see them and get a better idea for what’s coming up next.  I just used clip art and laminated them.  Enjoy!
