Bed Time 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. January is all about the letter B.

Sign Language

This week’s words were bed and sleep.

verdict

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.

Songs, Rhymes & Fun

The Craft

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.

verdict

Small group again. They liked the first 2 books but lost interest by Sweet Dreams.
