Our theme was teddy bears, but our night storytime is always wear jammies, bring a lovey, and low action.
My opening song is Hello Bubbles which I learned from Read Sing Play here. BTW this woman is a storytime goddess and I have picked up many great ideas on her blog.
Story the 1st: The Red Hat by Lita Judge
Why? Because I want to get across to my kids that books do not always have to have words in order for us to "read" them, and I want to give pre-readers a chance to feel proud they finished a book on their own. I plan to try to read or highlight at least one wordless read for the next couple of storytimes.
Flannel Board: Ten in the Bed
I used a modified version of this and had the kids take turns coming up to bump a bear out of bed. And when I say modified, I mean I didn't have enough felt to make the bed, so I just had a white sheet and the pillows for the bears.
Story the 2nd: Bear's New Friend by Karma Wilson
Great story for little and a little bit older kids. They LOVED it. Not It's a Tiger loved it, but still.
Song: Hap Palmer's Teddy Bear Playtime from So Big: Activity Songs for Little Ones.
Story the 3rd: Treasure by Suzanne Bloom
This one was one of those books that one kid was just lovin' (giggling and yelling out comments) and others were not as impressed. I think the book is adorable.
We finished up with animal crackers and this craft. I try to pick something very, very simple for this storytime because no one wants to be sitting there after closing coloring parts! Ha ha!
