BALLOONS, BALLOONS, BALLOONS!
Story time was all about BALLOONS today. After our welcome song and the ABC song. I had the kids think of all the things they could think of that started with the letter B. I had some blown up balloons in my closet that I brought out. I held out two of them and asked the kids what they thought would happen if I let go of the balloons. When I finally let go, one fell to the floor and the other one went to the ceiling. I explained the difference between blowing up a balloon with our own air and using helium (in the balloon that went up), then we read the following books.

I took 5 blown up balloons and had the kids try to keep them in the air as long as they could. We had a huge group today, so I tried to split up the taller ones so everyone would get a chance to hit the balloon.
