Story Love II

And, here is the “Story Love” storytime I did for my regular storytimes (with some of the same elements as my “Story Love” storytime for my older group)…

Opening Song: If You Want to Hear a Story

Read-aloud #1 (Story Cards): A Sleepy Story by Elisabeth Burrowes
Song/Fingerplay/Finger puppets: Ten in the Bed
Read-aloud #2: The Wonderful Book by Leonid Gore
Song (with flannels and finger puppets): Animals on the Bus
Read Aloud #3: I Took My Frog to the Library by Eric Kimmel
Song/Fingerplay/Props: Five Green and Speckled Frogs
Read Aloud #4: Dinosaur vs. the Library by Bob Shea (While the kids enjoyed this book, the participatory “roaring” got a little out of hand for me… and the illustrations didn’t totally lend themselves to this setting. I saw a librarian do this as a prop story… I might try that next time instead.)
*Flannel: Here is an Animal (Animal Feelings)
Read Aloud #5: Reading Makes You Feel Good by Todd Parr
(“Dancing” Song: “Dancing Scarf Blues” from Carole Peterson: Dancing Feet)

Closing Song: We Wave Good-bye Like This

*Here is an Animal (Animal Feelings) (with corresponding flannel pieces and kids mimicking the emotions)
Here is a mouse who’s happy
Here is a bear who sighs
Here is a turkey who’s sleepy
Here is a lion who cries
Here is a rabbit who’s angry
Here is a horse who’s sad
Here is a beaver who’s noisy
And here is an elephant who’s glad
