Color Storyhour, Red

Exciting Announcement:  Oleshka (Oleg) and his mother Anna have gotten me fired up to introduce baby signing to storytime.  We'll start slow, with a few signs each week and a lot of repetition.  I'm thinking we'll do "Hello", "Mother" and "More".  

Play:  Blow up a balloon and release -- always an attention getter. Paint red from a red paintpot onto a big white piece of paper. Wear your red clown bow and red & white Cat in the Hat hat. Little Red Wagon.
Book: Little Monsters by Jan Pienkowski claimed the attention of 20 babies at once!  Yay, little monsters!
Play: Red Ladybug puppet
Book: Dinosaur vs. Bedtime by Bob Shea.  This big red dinosaur was jussssst right for this group. He did a lot of roaring and the kids did a lot of listening. At the end, I read myself right down to the ground and stuck my thumb in my mouth and 'went to sleep.' Very fun. Christmas performance: Dinosaur vs. Santa.  Not so good.  None of these babies have been through enough Christmasses to get this book.
Book: "More More More," Said the Baby  by Vera Williams.  I just read the first tale which had plenty of action.
Book: Elmo If You're Happy and You Know It. Very good.
Play: 1-2-3-4-5-Once I caught a fish alive -- and I went over the colors again. The kids wanted those fish! 

What a happy crowd we were at storyhour! 
Pretty in pink -- hey, it was RED day!

Too bad the  moms swooped in when this party turned into a pom-pom tasting.

  1. Thanks for your blog Ms. Travis. I could see all my friends back.

  2. I was thinking of you and Raga just the other day. Alexandria and Sophia and Savannah are getting so big. I remember how you would all sit together before those babies could even crawl. Now they're all over the place! I bet Raga is hard to keep up with.
