Folder Story: “My Many Colored Capes”

Action Rhyme: “Superman”
Put your hands way up high (raise arms up in air)
Like Superman flying across the sky (assume flying position)
Fly to the left, now fly to the right (lean to your right, then left)
Now show me your muscles with all your might,(make arm muscles)
Now Superman’s putting his suit away (bring arms down slowly)
So he can go flying another day (rest hands in lap)

Superhero Madlibs (I wrote this and yes, feel free to use.)

How It Went

Site Information
At this location, I do two storytimes and each group has their own theme/storytime. Today’s group was the Pre-K and school age classrooms. I read to 39 people total.

This particular facility selects themes for me to do ahead of time to tie into their curriculum.

I really enjoyed being able to read to school-age kids since it’s not my norm. Since it was a combined classroom visit, I did bring flannelboards and some action rhymes. The school-age kids totally bought into it though and participated with glee. They absolutely LOVED the Mad Libs and I was glad that I wrote it. Best books were “Today I Will Fly” and “Superhero ABC”. One of the teachers really enjoyed “The Day I Lost My Superpowers” though!
