Roundup for September 21, 2011!
Notes from the Story Room reminds us "Don't Let the Tiger Get You". I love her props!
Story Time Secrets has lots of ideas for Squirrels (part of a fall series). Side note: Other people think "I HATE squirrels" every time someone says "squirrels," right? We just watched UP again, so that's back in my head now. Sorry. Not into squirrels? How about ducks? Nicole at Narrating Tales of Preschool Storytime has you covered with Raffi's (in?)famous song "Five Little Ducks". If your storytime needs some missing dinosaurs, Seth's your dude for that with "Five Little Dinosaurs."
Continuing the animal theme, Cat at Storytiming is asking "Can You Guess My Breakfast?" while Miss Mary Liberry is hunting down A House for Birdie. Bridget shares her version of Dog's Colorful Day, one of my favorite storytime books. Hello Kitty dances at Moxie's Five Little Ballerinas.
Miss Alison Is Blogging shared her Insect Guessing Game, which would be great for anyone planning a bug-themed storytime. Also posting a guessing game, this week is Mel's Desk--Mel's thinking about vegetables. This could be a cute idea if you are doing an outreach storytime at a farmer's market this fall. If burgers are your bag, Tracey's got you covered with Brown Bun, Brown Bun and then suggesting some 5 Little Jellybeans for dessert.
Speaking of yummy food, Anna is talking about Five (or 6) Little Apples. Apples are always a popular topic around this time of year. And an apple a doctor keeps the doctor away! One way to keep the dentist away says Mollie is to use our Five Toothbrushes. Hygiene can be fun!
And, lastly I posted my Animal Opposites activity. This can be used in storytimes or you can leave it out as an early literacy activity for families to do together.
I'm also pinning this week's posts on the Flannel Friday pinterest boards, so make sure to check there if you're starting to plan your fall storytimes.
Happy Labor Day! Everyone gets a big round of applause and a pat on the back from me for surviving Summer Reading.
