The Plan



Bunny Money by Rosemary Wells

Out and About at the Bank by Nancy Attebury
You Can’t Buy a Dinosaur With a Dime by Harriet Ziefert

Extension Activities

Flannelboard: “Down Around the Corner”

Fingerplay: “Three Little Dollars”
Three little dollars in a wallet new,
I bought a box of crayons,
And then there were two.
Two little dollars, and before the day was done,
I bought some cookies,
And then there was one.
One little dollar, I heard it plainly say,
“I’m going into the piggy bank for a rainy day!”

Song: I Had a Shiny Dime (to the tune of “The Farmer in the Dell”)
I had a shiny dime, (hold up right index finger)
I had a shiny dime,
I put it in my piggy bank, (make circle with thumb and fingers of left hand, put index finger into opening)
To spend another time.

How It Went

Well, it didn’t! This was a planned storytime from before I left my old job. I thought since I did the work and made the plan that I would just go ahead and post it anyways. I did have plans to paperclip the non-fiction book “Out and About at the Bank” though, since it was probably going to be too long for storytime.

    Love this theme – had been thinking of this as a possibility and you’ve given me some great ideas! Thanks!

    You can also talk about how your library card is like a credit card (you have a PIN to keep private, a limit of books/materials, and responsibility for what’s placed on it).
