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. December is all about the letter S.
This week’s word was moon.
Hush, Little Alien by Daniel Kirk
Tickle Monster by Josie Bissett
As usual, we played with our felt pieces & puppets.
I wasn’t sure about reading Tickle Monster since it doesn’t appear to be a space book. My concerns were unfounded because he’s an alien! and the kids loved all the tickling. I assumed the parents would tickle their kids at the appropriate points in the book but the kids preferred running up to me and getting tickled. It’s a great, unconventional pick for a space/alien storytime.
Otter in Space by Sam Garton
Your Alien by Tammi Sauer
Sheep Blast Off! by Nancy Shaw
We ran a bit long this week and had to skip over this one.
We worked on matching up the foam numbers in the puzzle.
Name spaceship/rocket! For full info on how to do it, check out Miss Meg’s Storytime. We had a blast with it.
It was another small group but we enjoyed ourselves.
