It was our first story time of the year (2015) last week and what terrible weather we had! Everything was soaking wet from the non-stop rain on Sunday and the temperature hovered just above 50 degrees. Nevertheless, we still had a few new friends join us!
Here’s what we did for Preschool Story Time:
- Hello Song
- If you’re wearing red today… (Tune: Mary had a little lamb)
Introductions (everyone shares names)
Sign Language: HUNGRY (flash card) or EAT
- Very Hungry Caterpillar
- The Crunching Munching Caterpillar
Review: Match fruits w/ days of week
Originally, the plan was to pass out the cards to all the kids present and then place them on the right days as we reviewed the book again. However, since there were only about 4 kids at Story Time, it made it a little harder to get the cards organized and this activity fell a little flat. I think with more kids it would have been better.
Craft: Butterfly on construction paper
- Construction paper w/ outline drawn
- Precut wings
Stay tuned next week for Seed themed fun!
