Preschool Story Time Wrap Up
Published on Monday, April 14, 2014 - 10:54am
At the Mt. Pleasant Library we offer a variety of story times for children and their caregivers. Every Wednesday at 10 a.m. and 11 a.m. our children’s room is bustling during our Preschool Story Time! Children ages 2-5 and their caregivers enjoy stories, songs, and rhymes.This past week we read some awesome books all about animals.
We talked about animals we have at home and sang a classic song about a pet turtle. Here are the words so you can sing at home!
I have a little turtle (pretend to hold a small turtle in your hands)
His name is Tiny Tim (sway the turtle side to side)
I put him in the bathtub (mimic putting the turtle in the bathtub)
To see if he could swim (move arms in swimming motion)
He drank up all the water (pretend to splash and drink water)
He ate up all the soap (pretend to eat soap)
He woke up in the morning with a bubble in his throat (put hands on throat)
Bubble, bubble, bubble - POP! (pretend the bubble is growing with each word by moving hands out, then clap! when it pops)
And here is what we read this week:
I Spy Pets by Edward Gibbs
Invites young readers to guess which animal will be revealed using the given clues and a spy hole. This book is full of adjectives and interesting descriptions of a variety of pets, providing a wonderful opportunity for young listeners to build their vocabulary!
Dog’s Colorful Day by Emma Dodd
Numbers, colors and a mischievous puppy make this book perfect for preschoolers. Practice identifying colors and counting dog’s spots as you enjoy this adorable story.
Can You Make a Scary Face? by Jan Thomas
A ladybug invites the reader to play a game of "let's pretend." The kids attending story time did a great job pretending to wiggle a lady bug off their noses, dancing the lady bug out of their shirts, and making super scary faces to ward off menacing frogs! This story is great to share with little ones to keep reading fun and playful.
Hope to see you at story time next week!
