I do a regularly scheduled (sometimes twice monthly and sometimes just monthly) at a local business that we’ve partnered with. For these storytimes geared towards ages 3-6, I’ve thrown out themes! I’m just reading favorites books, new books that strike my fancy, and doing favorite flannels/props/activities. Materials starred are the ones used at the storytime. Other than this difference, I’ll report on these like I do with all of my other storytimes.
The Mixed-Up Truck by Stephen Savage*
The Not So Quiet Library by Zachariah Ohora
One Day in the Eucalyptus, Eucalyptus Tree by Daniel Bernstrom*
Still a Gorilla! by Kim Norman*
Walter’s Wonderful Web by Tim Hopgood*
Flannelboard: “Down Around the Corner”*
Flannelboard: “Ten Fluffy Chickens”*
Finger Puppet Glove: “Five Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed”*
Prop: “Movement Cube”*
Prop: “Song Cube”*
How It Went
The kids absolutely loved the new movement cube/game! We roll it several times throughout the storytime which was a great break from our books. The best books for the day were definitely The Mixed-Up Truck which segued great into the “Down Around the Corner” flannelboard, and Still a Gorilla!. We also had very happy kiddos when we were jumping with the monkeys on the bed!
