Family Storytime: Shapes

My opening song used in past storytimes is not working anymore. I think the groups are too large. When 37 people walked in last week I improvised and used the “we wave hello like this,” but that song is kind of boring. 460 more words

Toddler Time: Bugs, Bugs, Bugs

We recently started offering a Toddler Time storytime for our nearby preschools/daycares. We do this special storytime once a month, and I’ve been assigned to them in July, August, and September (and hopefully October, November, Decemeber, etc.). 275 more words


Storytime: Body

A lot of children under the age of 3 attend our Monday morning storytime. To make these programs more interactive I try to incorporate a lot of songs and rhymes that require the parent or child to point to different body parts. 669 more words


Baby Storytime: 2

I plan on repeating a few feltboards/songs/stories throughout our sessions for a couple of reasons: familiarity, repetition increases learning, and parents will feel more comfortable using the rhymes/tickles/songs/stories outside of the home. 278 more words

Family Storytime: Dogs

Family Storytime is a bit odd. During the summer it was a true family storytime with attendees ranging from babies to 11(ish). Today’s group (of 37!) looked to be mostly toddlers. 203 more words
