We were a small group today, but we had a lot of fun with our topic — PIGS!
We read 2 great pigs books — Litte Flower and Pigs on a Blanket.
My young friend told her own version of Three Little Pigs and then we told the story together on the felt board. What fun!
You can find some great felt board pieces for The Three Little Pigs here.
We created our own pig versions of favorite songs like “The Pigs on the Bus” and “There’s a Spider on the Pig”.
Then we danced with scarves.
Next week we will have some terrific BEAR stories and activities. Have you ever gone on a bear hunt?
Dogs, Dogs, Dogs! Today our theme was DOGS!
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.
Next week our theme is: DINOSAURS!
Haven’t been to Toddler Time yet?????
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!
Next week our theme is: DOGS. See you then!
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.
Next week, our theme is Counting.
