Today was a marvelous day as I did my first preschool storytime for a long time. It could *not* have been better. What a great group of kids, and only in school for three days! They sat so well, and I was able to do a whole half-hour storytime with them! I’m doing it again on Friday with three-year olds, but I might make it a little shorter.
Here was the fun! Books are in italics, songs or fingerplays are in quotations.
“Good morning” sung to the tune of “Happy Birthday.” (Good morning to you / good morning to you / good morning dear preschool / good morning to you.)
“1-2 buckle my shoe”
“Two little houses all closed up tight”
“The Wheels on the Bus”
“The More We Get Together”
I do need to get some better material as far as songs go. It went pretty well, but I need to get a CD with children’s music that is pretty straightforward (rather than the Raffi concert CD that I have, which includes a lot of banter with the crowd). Any ideas?
