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 were shoes and socks.
Baby Shoes by Dashka Slater
Socksquatch by Frank W. Dormer
One Two That’s My Shoe by Alison Murray
As usual, we played with our felt pieces & puppets.
We had an odd group this week with more adult than kids at storytime. That said I think everyone enjoyed themselves. All the adults sang along and participated which always helps.
I Love My White Shoes by Eric Litwin
Lucky Socks by Carrie Weston
We worked on matching up the foam numbers in the puzzle.
Shoe Matching Game
I found these awesome Shoe Lace Templates on Real Purdy. I printed several pairs up, cut them out, and punched holes in the correct place. I printed a few pairs on different colored paper. I tried to make every pair unique (polka dots, stripes, etc). I was going to have the kids help me match up the pairs.
I let the kids pick some shoes from the game to color. I also made up some ‘shoelaces’ out of yarn and masking tape (for the aglet) so we could work on threading and/or tying.
No one showed! I’m a bit bummed that no one came. I was really looking forward to play with the shoes.
