Box Storytime

I’m going to try to structure each month around a different letter and then each week the stories will all be about a word starting with that letter. October is all about the letter X. I quickly discovered that words that start with X are hard to come by so we’re talking about words that have the letter X in them.

October is going to be a bit spotty as we have a storytime workshop and Spooky Storytime planned so I’m getting X ‘out of the way’ this month.

Sign Language

This week’s word was box.

Preschool

The Books

The Nowhere Box by Sam Zuppardi

The Big Brown Box by Marisabina Russo

Not a Box by Jackie Antoinette Portis

Songs, Rhymes & Fun

I don’t do a lot of action rhymes with this age group so I’m going to try out I Wiggle with them for a while.

 

The Craft

I cut up squares in various colors of paper and slightly different sizes. I let them ‘build’ with them and glue their creations on piece of paper.

verdict

The craft was a big hit. We even had older kids coming to do it (it was fall break for schools).
