Storytime with Ms. Katie -- January 27-31

Infants, PreschoolersRachel KohlComment

It was another two storytime week! There was no Toddler Time because I attended the YALSA Morris & Nonficition Award Ceremony at ALA Midwinter 2014. It was a great experience and I received a number of great young adult nonficition titles.

Don't forget to join us at the Rachel Kohl Library for storytime! Anyone is welcome to join us!

The Fingerplays / Flannel Board

Both of our non-book activities were about monkeys! The flannel board was Five Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed which is always fun since it's a classic and everyone can sing along.

The second song/fingerplay we did was Five Little Monkeys Sitting in a Tree. I can't remember where I first found it but it is another classic that many of the parents knew. The preschoolers LOVED it!

5 little monkeys sitting in a tree
hold up 5 fingers
Teasing Mr. Alligator, "Can't catch me!"
put thumbs in ears and wiggle fingers
(whispering) Along came the alligator quiet as can be
put palms together like an alligator mouth and weave back and forth
And SNATCHED that monkey right out of the tree!
open palms wide and clap loudly on "snatched"
