"I have no idea what I am doing." This is how I started story time this week. Still recovering from PLA conference and a very big job interview (more on that later), I never got around to making my parent handout. I had everything I needed, but I was totally winging the 'how' of what I was going to do. It turned out pretty well though! So here is my SILLY Story Time just in time for April Fools Day.
Silly Tilly was so silly! She did everything, well, differently from everyone else. Could the other animals convince her to not be so silly? The kids enjoyed this one very much.
There was an old lady who swallowed a fly.....
After HALFTIME, and the Popcorn Song, we were back with another felt story!
And my craft today was more of an activity. One of our patrons gave me some wonderful beads, so today we strung them on yarn. We used big-eyed plastic needles and taped one end of the yarn to the table so it would stay put. The kids worked so intently! This is such a great craft idea that I try to do something like this seasonally. Some of the kids did patterns, some wanted almost all one color. No matter. They worked on their fine motor skills and had a great time.
And oh, if you are still wondering, I accepted a job offer as a Head Librarian in our county system! Whoot! Don't worry, I plan to blog all of my story times until I go, and I hope to have lots to blog about in the future!
I could never leave the Library Village!
Thanks for stopping by!
