|Here Comes Jack Frost by Kazuno Kohara|
|Sneezy the Snowman by Maureen Wright|
My action rhyme this week is so fun too. Being one who likes to sing everything, I sing this rhyme to 5 Little Ducks.
5 Little Snowmen
5 little snowmen standing in a row (show 5 fingers)
5 little snowmen made of snow (pat belly)
Out came the sun and shone all day (make circle with arms overhead)
And one little snowman melted away (wriggle your body and melt down to the ground).

|Snowball Fight by Jimmy Fallon|
I don't ALWAYS do a craft. OK, I do, but this time I decided to do an activity at the end of story time before craft - a SNOWBALL FIGHT!!! Here are my munitions:
AND our craft!
This was my first story time at my new location. I got a little of 'our old story time lady didn't do things that way'. I had to breathe and remember that my replacement was probably getting the same thing, and in a few weeks these kids would be used to my structure and own uniqueness and all would be well. There are things I didn't bring with me from my last branch, and that's OK too. I know that if I am comfortable and happy with what I am doing, then the kids will have fun. Just keep swimming!
Thanks for stopping by!
