Snowflake storytime

The Plan:

book picks

Sing/play: Jingle Bell Rock (Alvin and the Chipmunks CD) with jingle bells

Sing: If You’re Ready for a Story

Read: No Two Alike

Introduce Olivia, the snowy owl and talk about snowy owls

owl puppet

Talk: Owl Action Rhyme (that starts, “There’s a wide-eyed owl…”)

Sing/play: Frosty the Snowman (Alvin and Chipmunks again) with jingle bells

Read: The Jacket I Wear in the Snow with flannelboard

the jacket flannel

Play: Over the River and Through the Woods (Alvin and the Chipmunks) with parachute, lifting it like a tunnel and letting them run and play underneath.

Read: Snowflakes (a non-fiction title)

Adjourn for playtime with the flannelboard and puppets.

The Reality:

This mostly went off without a hitch. I noticed that the kids got a little bit bored with The Jacket, but not terribly so. The kiddos loved the parachute so much that we played it twice. I’ll probably repeat exactly tomorrow.
