Sometimes we begin a few minutes early, so the tiny people are engaged.
Story Lady right brain clicks in gear and for the next half hour we have a wild, happy time.
We have a span of ages. Lots of creative opportunity.
This morning our Friend, "Ms. N," chose a book from the "graduation table."
"Oh! The Places You'll Go!"
Been a while since I'd read it. Ya know, when you're having fun, everything kinda sparkles, amazes and calls to mind the things that make everyone smile. I mean EVERYONE. No matter what their original language. Of course, Dr. Seuss works for our crowd.
Anything can happen.
Today "Wheels On The Bus" included a verse with alligator on the bus . . . "Snap. Snap, Snap!"
We found New Books on the shelves.
Oh, how i enjoy the discovery of a new picture book.
A few new books at home could prevent the "summer slide"
most students experience.
Or, could simply make us happy.
We had time for:
"Stack the Cats" by Susie Ghahremani
Bright colors, simple counting story, worked for everyone in the room
and, the colors really captured our attention.
No matter which Story Time you attend
there's plenty of singing
