Spring Storytime 4/17/18

Book read: 
Mouse's first spring by Lauren Thompson

Let's All Do a Little Clapping 
(Tune:"We Wish You a Merry Christmas", modified from Storytime Katie)
Let's all do a little clapping,
Let's all do a little clapping,
Let's all do a little clapping,
and spread springtime cheer!
Other actions can include stomping, jumping, twirling, etc.  

Up pop the flowers (to the tune of "Pop Goes the Weasel", from Hummingbird Educational Resources)
We plant some seeds in the dirt. (pretend to plant seeds)
The rain falls in a shower. (raise arms and wiggle fingers to ground)
The sun comes out and what do you know? (squat down)
Up pop the flowers! (jump up) 

Five Little Ducks 

Wiggling Worms (modified from Kids Activities)
Wiggle them up, (wiggle hands up)
Wiggle them down, (wiggle hands down)
Wiggle them around and around. (wiggle hands in circle)
Wiggle them fast, (wiggle hands fast)
Wiggle them slow, (wiggle hands slowly)
Wiggle them high, (wiggle hands up)
Wiggle them low. (wiggle hands down)
Wiggle them on your feet, (wiggle on feet)
Wiggle them on your head, (wiggle on head)
Wiggle them, wiggle them,
Straight to bed. (pretend to sleep)

Craft: We decorated paper plate snails with stickers.  

Literacy tip of the week: Reading is a great way to expose your child to new words. It has been shown that picture books contain about 30 rare words per 1000, whereas conversation between an adult and child typically contains about 9 rare words per 1000.
