Wild Sendak Rumpus Preschool Storytime

Storytime for 3 to 5 year olds:

  • Shape literacy activity flannelboard - Shape Identification
I passed out a felt circle, triangle, or rectangle to each child. We then talked about how many lines and corners each shape has. Then they brought up their shapes to place on the board. 


  • Stand-up activity - "Monster Boogie" from Buzz Buzz by Laurie Berkner

  • Activity - Alligator Pie (fingerplay I found somewhere, I have seen it on numerous websites)
Alligator, alligator, alligator pie
If I don't get some
I think I'm gonna cry
You can take away the grass
Take away the sky
But don't take away
My alligator pie!

  • Book #3 - Bears by Ruth Krauss, illustrated by Maurice Sendak


  • Art experience - Color with pens and cut out paper monster feet

  • Reflection - This storytime was pulled together at almost the last moment.  I needed to quickly substitute for another librarian.  I'm not sure if I would do this line up of books again.  It didn't seem to flow very well.  The art activity turned out really cute, especially once we figured out how to make the foot hole larger on the paper feet.
