Now for Preschool Storytime- always my favorite! (I separated my Flannel Friday posts this week because I used a few different books/flannels for my bigger kids and the layout is little different, especially for Letter of the Week). Welcome/Opening Songs: I start with a “thumbs” check in. Then I put out two thumbs up because… Continue reading Storytime Saturday: Rainy Days (Preschool Pack)
It's spring and you know what that means... RAIN! (Or, if you live in Colorado... SNOW!) So even though it's been snowing, we forged ahead with a rainy days theme storytime this week and the kiddos loved it! First up is the plan for Toddler Time. Here's some of the books I had ready to… Continue reading Storytime Saturday: Rainy Days (Toddler Time)
We did this fun little counting/color recognition flannel in conjunction with reading The Thingamabob by Il Sung Na (which may just be my new favorite weather picture book ever!)

It was super fun and I'm so excited to share the whole plan with you- hopefully… Continue reading Flannel Friday: Get Up & Groove (Toddler/Preschool Storytime)
Welcome to another addition of Top 10 Tuesday! While writing this I realized I don't really read funny books. Like ever. My personal bookshelf doesn't contain a single happy-go-lucky feel-good or laugh-out-loud book. Lots of murder mysteries and George R.R. Martin though. (Not sure what that says about me... O.O) Luckily, my professional bookshelf is… Continue reading Top 10 Tuesday: Books that Make You LOL
Welcome to my first Flannel Friday post! I'm so excited to share this storytime with you today. This storytime was a HUGE hit with my preschoolers when I was doing outreach. Since I started in a new role at the library, I adapted the plan to include a craft and be more flexible for toddlers/preschoolers.… Continue reading Flannel Friday: Dog Days (Outreach Storytime)
