Extension Activities

Flannelboard Puzzle: “Letter Q”

Flannelboard: “Five Little Ducks”
Five little ducks went out one day
Over the hills and far away
Mother duck said, “Quack, quack, quack, quack”
But only four little ducks came back

Action Rhyme: “Loud and Quiet”
Quietly, quietly not a sound
I’m listening and I’m listening
As I look around
No sounds as I nod (nod)
No sounds as I clap (clap)
No sounds as I tap my hands on my lap (tap)
Loudly, loudly, stamp and clap (stamp and clap)
Loudly, loudly, stamp and clap (stamp and clap)
Loudly, loudly, stamp and clap (stamp and clap)
All that noise, well fancy that!

Fingerplay: “Quiet Mouse”
Here’s a quiet little mouse
Living in a quiet little house (hold thumb in fist)
When all was quiet as could be
OUT! popped he! (pop out thumb)

I thought up this craft on my own, making up a quick coloring sheet and using the tissue paper squares to make a quilt!

How It Went

This was my first storytime back at daycare in over a month! Bad weather combined with a sudden influx of kids made it very hard for everyone to walk over during the summer months. Once summer reading was over, I started driving back to make it easier on us all. The kids were super excited to have storytime back and they listened very carefully to most of the stories. Things got a little wiggly towards the end, so I did leave out some of the extension activities I had planned. Their favorite books were “Be Quiet, Mike” where they joined me on the refrain and “Little Quack” where they helped me count the ducks!
