Pre-K 1-5-12 Opposites!

We had a little bit of a shy group today (lots of new kiddos), but storytime got pretty lively by the end.  If kids are feeling a little shy, it's really helpful for the adults to get up and get goofy with the kids.  I felt a bit like Will Ferrell in Old School running down the know what scene I'm talking about.  ;-)

Memory Box: Stoplight (from Maisy Big, Maisy Small)

Book: Maisy Big, Maisy Small by Lucy Cousins

Book: "Tall Mouse, Short Mouse" from Mouse Tales by Arnold Lobel.  We presented this as a puppet show.

Another fun opposites book:  Where is the Green Sheep? by Mem Fox

Movement: "Drivin' in My Car" by Ralph's World.  We drove around (ok, I, drove around) with paper plate steering wheels)

Finger Play: "Two Little Black Birds".  I hand out two black pom poms to each child for this rhyme.

Two little black birds
Sitting on a hill
One named Jack
And one named Jill

Fly away, Jack
Fly away, Jill

Come back, Jack
Come back, Jill

Two little black birds
Sitting on a cloud
One named Quiet
And one named Loud

Fly away, Quiet
Fly away, Loud

Come back, Quiet
Come back, Loud

Two little black birds
Sitting in some snow
One named Fast
And one named Slow

Fly away, Fast
Fly away, Slow

Come back, Fast
Come back, Loud

Letter of the Day:  Rr
