I couldn't seem to get away from our summer theme for this storytime.  I had some books I have been wanting to share with the kids that we didn't use during the summer so thats what we read today.

We introduced Wally and Wendy the Weather Bears.  I hope to utilize them throughout the year.  Today Wally was wearing a raincoat due to the weather outside.

Stories Read:
Kitten's Fist Full Moon by Kevin Henkes
Papa, please get the moon for me by Eric Carle
The Sun is My Favorite Star by Frank Asch
Stars by Ray Frazee

Action Rhyme and Flannel Boards:
"Moon Ride"
Do you want to go up with me to the moon? (point up)
Let's get in our rocket ship and blast off soon! (climb in, seat belt, blast off!)
Faster and faster we reach to the sky (jump and reach)
Isn't it fun to be able to fly? (hands out)
We're on the moon, now all take a look (look around)
Sit back down, and I'll read you a book.  (sit down)

"Bend and Stretch"
Bend and stretch, reach for the stars
There goes Jupiter, here comes Mars
Bend and stretch and reach for the sky
Stand on tip-e-toe, oh so high!

"Four Little Stars"
Four little stars winking at me.
One shot off and then there were 3!
Three little stars with nothing to do,
One shot off, and then there were 2!
Two little stars afraid of the sun,
One shot off, and then there was 1!
One little star alone is no fun,
It shot off, and then there was none!

"Row, Row, Row Your Boat"
Row, row, row your boat,
Gently down the stream,
If you see an alligator
Don't forget to scream. (SCREAM!)
(Use other animals and there sounds for other verses)

(Found these ideas online.  I did not note down the sites I found them on but I want to thank them for there creativity and willingness to share ideas. Thanks)

I had the kids make star magnets today.  I had foam stars that I let them decorate them place a magnet on the back.  Here are a few pictures of the crafts.

Join us next week for some more fun.  Thanks for coming!
