After talking about our dogs, we read 2 great books about dogs — See Me Run and Dog Loves Books. We did a fun nursery rhyme, Old Mother Hubbard, on our felt board. We sang some of our favorite songs and fingerplays and we danced with color scarves to music.
Toddler Time is a story and activity time geared for children 18 months up to 3 years old. A typical Toddler Time includes two books, a felt board activity, favorite songs and fingerplays, and some music/movement experiences.
Please join us on Tuesdays @ 11 AM for Toddler Time.
The Library also offer a Story Time @ 10 AM on Saturdays.
Today our theme was the ZOO ANIMALS. We read Curious George Feeds the Animals by Margret and H.A. Rey and 1,2,3 to the Zoo by Eric Carle. Of course, everyone loves Curious George, but the Eric Carle book was a lot of fun too — it was a wordless counting book and the children had a great time talking about the different animals and making up little stories about them.
The favorite part of today’s Toddler Time was our felt board activity — There Was an Old Woman Who Swallowed a Fly. We had a small group today so every child got to participate! And of course we sang and danced!
Oops! It seems I missed writing about Toddler Time for the last couple weeks. It’s been a busy summer here at the library. We’ve just wrapped up our summer reading program with a fun family picnic. It was great and everyone seemed to have a terrific time. Hopefully everyone will keep reading….
Our theme today was butterflies. Although we were a small group, we still had a lot of fun. We read I Am a Butterfly and The Very Hungry Caterpiller. We used felt board pieces as we read The Very Hungry Caterpiller. Then we danced and sang.
Our theme today was FISH. We read two great fish books — classic Swimmy by Leo Lionni and Trout Trout Trout by April Pulley Sayre.
Trout Trout Trout was a really fun book to read aloud — it reads as a chant with lots of rhythm. It is also a great book to introduce readers to a whole host of unusual fish that most people probably have not heard about or even seen. There is an inforative section in the back of the book that talks in more depth about each of the unusual fish featured in the book.
We practice couting from 1-5 and from 5-1 with our felt board activity — 5 Little Fishies. And of course we sang and grooved to some great Greg and Steve tunes.
Although we were a small group today, we still had a lot of fun. Our theme today was the alphabet. We read the books, Superhero ABC and Eating the Alphabet, and practiced our letters on the felt board. We sang some songs from our song cube and at the end, we danced and danced to some new-to-us Greg and Steve songs.
After the program, we had some fun with magnetic boards and letters.
