June 13 - Going to the Moon
Welcome song: Hello, How are You? by Dr. Jean
I purposefully planned few stories and songs because....
We then made our own moon surfaces! I had pre-made water/flour dough/paste and tagboard circles. The children were able to move the paste around on their circles to create the surface of the moon. I provided plastic knives for the children who were uncomfortable touching the paste. A few children started out with the knives, but by the end everyone's hands and arms will covered in it! What fun!
Goodbye Songs: Big Books, Little Books AND The Other Day
June 20 - Night Creatures
This is the first storytime with this theme because there are just too many great night creature songs, stories, and movement activities!
Welcome Song: Hello, How are You? by Dr. Jean
Bats are Sleeping (tune: Frere Jacques)
Bats are sleeping,
Bats are sleeping.
Sleeping in the morning,
Waiting for the night to come
To fly around,
To fly around.
We sang the song and did the actions about three times.
