Count with me, 1-2-3! Today’s stories featured numbers and counting (plus animals and vegetables who love both!) We read four books, did three fingerplays, and played with iPads and Tiggly Counts and Shapes (five for each!) Can you count down the days ’til summer reading? 3…2…1… read!

Story Time: Let’s Play Library!

IMG_2464IMG_2466

Today’s story time was all about the library! We read stories and did ryhmes about going to the library, and then we played library with a pretend book return and library books, due date cards, bookmarks, and library cards! We decorated our library kit materials and today, little librarians and patrons got a backpack to take home and use especially for library books. (You can print a free let’s-play-library kit right here!)

April showers bring May flowers! Our recent story times featured rainy day stories with rhythm, puddle jumpin’ and rain-making games, a cloud mobile craft, and then, adding some sunshine, planting rainbows, and making tissue paper gardens! Story times happen every Friday at 11am, come rain or come shine. Happy spring!
