This 45 minute storytime is perfect for school or public librarians serving toddlers, preschoolers, or Kindergarteners. I have included song cards, activity instructions, and a lesson plan that includes the books I use.
For this story time, I read one groundhog book, one winter book, and one spring book. We discuss the differences between the seasons and children vote on which season they prefer.
About the songs pages:
I print my songs on a full page and laminate them. When possible, I double side these to save on resources. I then attach some velcro (rough side) to the poster so I can put it on the felt board while we sing. This helps reinforce word recognition and allows caregivers to sing along.
In addition, I print out the "half page" sheets double sided and have them available for caregivers to take home so they can continue the fun!
