Narrating Tales of Preschool Storytime

Valentine’s Day Storytime

I LOVE VALENTINE’S DAY! So here is what I did for my preschool storytime.

The first thing I did was teach them this adorable rhyme that I got from Jbrary. We made hearts with our hands and the kids loved it! Then we did it again at the end to see if they could remember it.

Songs:

Skinnamarink (with all the hand motions)

If You’re Happy and You Know it By: Mr. Eric & Mr. Michael (I love this version because it’s so spunky!)

Tooty-ta By: Dr. Jean (Cause WHY NOT)

Flannel Board:

Mama Loves You, with book by: Caroline Stutson

I also did an interactive flannel board with them. I passed out colored hearts and each child received one.  Then there was one BIG heart on the flannel board and I invited the kids to come “decorate” the valentine with their tiny hearts.  I called them up by color and they would place it on the board. I stole this idea from my newest coworker Liz! THE KIDS WENT NUTS.  They loved it so much. Just being able to touch the flannel board made them so happy.  I might make this a weekly thing.

Books:

Be Mine, Be Mine, Sweet Valentine By: Sarah Weeks

Love Monster By: Rachel Bright

Check out my Valentine’s Day tag on my Shelfari page for more good books that I didn’t have time to read!
