Careers Storytime

Storytime for 1-1/2 to 3 year olds:
  • Opening - Skinnamarink, Sticky Sticky Bubblegum
  • Book #1 – Shhhhh! Everybody's Sleeping by Julie Markes, illustrated by David Parkins
  • Activity – Shake My Sillies Out (action song from More Singable Songs by Raffi)
  • Flannelboard/Math Activity - Color pattern blocks, predict the next color in the pattern
  • Book #2 - *** When Poppy and Max Grow Up by Lindsey Gardiner
  • Activity - Some Dogs (action rhyme, I slightly rewrote this one from one I saw somewhere)
Some dogs run.
Some dogs bark.
Some dogs jump.
Some dogs growl.
Some dogs roll in the grass.
Some dogs yip.
Some dogs sniff.
Some dogs howl.
And some dogs just wag their tails all day.
  • Closing - Scarves using "Water, Wind and World" from The Second Line by Johnette Downing
  • Craft – Painting (being an artist like Poppy)
*** Targeted Parent Literacy Enhancement - The more words children know the easier it is when they learn how to read. Research tells us that it is easier to read a word that you have already heard. Books help your child learn new words, or vocabulary, because books contain more words than you will find in everyday conversations.
