Storytimes

I am really into planning themed storytimes. I was introduced to the idea by my moms group and I've taken it and run with it. I planned a Read for the Record storytime last October and one for the Where the Wild Things Are movie release. We always read at least one story and do at least one craft, and sometimes we throw in songs or other activities.


The 2009 Read for the Record book was Eric Carle's The Very Hungry Caterpillar. We read the story and then made sock puppets!




Where the Wild Things Are came out in October, but we put off the storytime until November because of all my baby planning. We would have read the book, but the kids weren't interested, so we jumped right to the mask making.



In February, we planned to learn about ladybugs. Again, the little ones were antsy, so we jumped right to the puppets. We did watch the Ladybug Picnic video, though!





I have lots of ideas for future storytimes, and I'm very excited to execute them.
