First Storytime of Fall 2012

I do a Babygarten program on Mondays, twos and threes on Wednesday, and fours and fives on Thursday. Today was the twos and threes program and we started off with a big group. I have to hold storytime for this group in the main area of the children's room, since we could not fit into the storytime room without a huge shoehorn! Today there were 30 children and  just as many adults with babies and extra adults added.

Opening ----Who Wore Their __________ Today?
Open Shut Them

Baby Bear introduces the letter of the day

Mother Goose Rhyme

Color of the day

Book---- Monkey and Me    Emily Gravett (illustrate running finger under some of the words)

Fingerplay--- Five Little Monkeys

Flannel Story---Brown Bear, Brown Bear     Bill Martin Jr.

Action Song---If You're Happy and You Know It

Book with Props---How Do You Put It On? Shiego Wantanabe

Closing--Teddy Bear Turn Around
Stamp a bear paw on hands
Color a brown bear

Perfect mix of stories, talking, action, but keep the first song short and go right into Open Shut Them
