Today in storytime we talked about the OCEAN and the SEA and the creatures that live there.  We had a lot of fun reading the following books:
Under the Sea (lift the flap) illustrated by Peter Scott
Smiley Shark by Ruth Galloway
I'm the Beggest Thing in the Ocean by Kevin Sherry
The Deep Blue Sea, a book of colors by Audrey Wood


Shark in the park by Phil Cox
We also did a flannel board story of the the Biggest Thing in the Ocean, here is what it looked like.

Craft Time
     We created our own ocean's today.  You take a paper plate and draw ocean critters on the inside then take a piece of blue celephane wrap and wrap it around the plate, taping it tight to the back.  This is what a completed one would look like.
Here are pictures of the kids creating their oceans.

Thanks to everyone for coming.  Cya next week.

FISH ! ! !

Fish was the theme of our storytime today.  We started with reading a book called "About Fish, A guide for Children by Cathryn Sill, that talked about fish.

Then we read the book:  "Fish, Swish! Splash, Dash! by Suse MacDonald.  This is a counting round book.

 I had the kids get up and clear space and we did the "Fishy Pokey" ( to the tune of the Hokey Pokey ).  Everyone got involved and had a lot of fun.  Then we read our last book for the day called: "Ten Little Fish, by Audrey Wood.

Craft Time:  For our craft today, we made our own fishbowls.  I gave each child a copy of an empty fishbowl.  We then took small strips of colored paper and glued on to the fish bowl for the grass.  Then we used fruit loops to glue on as rocks and fish crackers to glue on as the fish in our bowl. 

The kids all created great fishbowls.  Below are some pictures of their crafts.

Thank you all for coming.  Hope to see you all again next week.

Good Morning Everyone!  Storytime today was about fairy tales with the main story that we talked about being the "3 Little Pigs".   We started with doing the flannel board story of the 3 little pigs, with the kids helping to tell the story.

I shared two stories with the kids today, both were stories about the wolf and or the 3 little pigs but they had a twist to them.  The first one was called:  "The Three Horrid Little Pigs" by Liz Pichon.  This one took the three pigs and made the wolf the nice character.  The second one was called:  "Oops!"  by Colin McNaughton.  This one is about the big bad wolf and a little pig that goes into another story.

Our craft for the day was coloring pages of the 3 little pigs.

Thank you to everyone who came.  Hope to see you next week for some more fun!!!!

Welcome back to Story Time.

We had our first preschool Story Time today.  Our theme today was about the Library and what you should and should not do there.  But the main idea was that the Library is a fun place to be, especially storytime, because we can do a lot of fun things there.

I introduced the kids to Mr. Wiggles.  He showed them some things to be careful of with the books they read.  We read a book called Shout! Shout it out! by Denise Fleming to demonstrate how we can be noisy in storytime but not out in the library where we could disturb others.  We also read the book called, I took my Frog to the Lirary by Eric A. Kimmel and talked about why we don't bring our pets to the Library.

We read a book called Maybe A Bear Ate It! by Robie Harris and talked about lost books.

Our craft project for the day was a coloring book for each child that was their own mini book about the Library called, Button's Lost Library Book.

Thank you to everyone for coming today.  We will see you again next week to have more fun.
