During the month of June we are talking about our favorite animals, and for our first week Ms. Garria picked Elephants and Piggies (after all, she is a HUGE Mo Willems fan). As always, all three of our story times throughout the week were on the same subject but featured different stories and activities. Between Ms. Garria, Ms. Cheryl and myself we read quite a few!
- We are in a book! by Mo Willems
- Elephants Can’t Dance by Mo Willems
- Pigs to the Rescue by John Himmelman
- Piggies by Don and Audrey Woods
- Pigs Rock by Melanie Davis Jones
- Little Oink by Amy Krouse Rosenthal
- The Three Horrid Little Pigs by Liz Pichon
- How To Catch an Elephant by Amy Schwart
Mrs. Garria made us a special flannel board about Five Clean and Dirty Pigs, with a rhyme that was sung to the tune of Five Green and Speckled Frogs: (Repeat for numbers 5-1)
Five pigs so squeaky clean
Cleanest you’ve ever seen
Wanted to go outside and play
One jumped into the mud
Landed with a big THUD
Then there were four clean squeaky pigs!
Our kids enjoyed watching the Piggies on our flannel board go from clean to dirty, and they had a great time making their own version for our craft. Everyone got a piggie cut out to make a dirty as they wanted with brown paint and sponges.
Our current StoryTime session will run through July 19. We have All Ages StoryTime Wednesdays at 10:30 and Thursdays at 11:30 and ToddlerTime Thursdays at 10:30 (with a special Gaming session for older kids while their younger siblings are in ToddlerTime!)
Hope we see you soon!
