Birds Storytime - March 11

Thanks to Indianhead Federated Library System for the use of the birds kit.

Welcome Song - we used some shakers, also borrowed from IFLS. Instead of placing our hands on different parts of our body, we shook the instruments near them.

Book: 5 Little Ducks by Raffi

Puppets: 3 Little Birds - I used the adorable and soft nest & bird puppet. The poem/fingerplay is my own creation.

Movement: I'm a Duck - we practiced the actions then sang the song a few times.

Book: Henny Penny by Jane Wattenberg

Movement: This is the Way. . . I turned it into a sort of "Workin On the Railroad" type of song.

Book: Shhh! We have a Plan by Chris Haughton

Poem: Birdseed by Brod Bagert

Goodbye Song & Bubbles

For playgroup, we made birds by spreading paint around with a fork. SUPER CUTE. I saw the idea here. They did the painting and google eyes here and I told them they could create more details at home, like a beak or feet or a nest.

I also set out some tile letters, the birds & next puppets, and the finger mitt for 5 Little Ducks.

Next Week: Barnyard Tales!
