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. January is all about the letter B.
This week’s words were bed and sleep.
Tuck Me In! by Dean Hacohen & Sherry Scharschmidt
Teddy Bedtime! by Georgie Birkett
We had a bit of wild storytime again this week. I think they liked the stories (when they were paying attention).
I really need to work on some songs/rhymes to pull out when we get out of control.
Good Night, Sleep Tight by Mem Fox & Judy Horacek
Cornelius P. Mud, Are You Ready For Bed? by Barney Saltzberg
Sweet Dreams: How Animals Sleep by Kimiko Kajikawa
I print out some coloring sheets with kids and animals in pajamas and cut them out. The kids colored them and then we made them a bed! You take a piece of construction paper and fold in in half (like you were making a card). Make a gentle fold once again as if you were to make it into a greeting card. Now have the kids cut one of the quarters out. Ta-da! Now the paper kind of looks like a bed. Tuck your coloring sheet in and put them to bed.
Small group again. They liked the first 2 books but lost interest by Sweet Dreams.
