Letter T storytime was Tuesday. We had a total of 19 in attendance which includes children and their caregivers. We have a new check-in process at our library- it's a kiosk where they can scan their library card. I tried to meet each child there with my Turtle puppet.
Next we went to the rug and sang. After our beginning song I introduced the letters T and U. Because I want to finish the alphabet before the end of summer I am doubling up (tripling the last week) on some letters.
Show and Tell was next where we had great participation. Among the items brought were unicorns, umbrellas, play toast, a teacup, a tomato, tiger and a truck. I am so proud of them when they get up and tell everyone what they brought!
On to Zoo Phonics where we went all the way through to U adding Timothy Tiger and Umber Umbrella Bird.
I read the first half of Chicka Chicka Boom Boom by Bill Martin Jr.
I had a few other books on standby but since we were running short on time I skipped them. But for the letter U I highly recommend The Very Ugly Bug by Liz Pichon (for a slightly older crowd than what I have weekly).
this printable from I Heart Crafty Things and some circle stickers with the alphabet written on them.
Totschooling and put them inside these dry erase pocket sleeves. This helped me avoid laminating 15 pages!
I totally forgot to give the kids Teddy Grahams that I got for them.
Next week is V and W! and I am NOT ready! Better get to work......
