Story Time Review

Mooooooooo that's who!

We have come to the end of the year for our Story Time classes. I will spend the month of May prepping for our upcoming summer activities themed Dig into Reading! @ your library! For our final week we talked and read about cows. I read How to Speak Moo by Deborah Fajerman, The Cow that Clucked by Denise Fleming, The Cow that Laid an Egg by Andy Cutbill and Stop that Cow! by Mairi Mackinson, Is Everyone Ready for Fun? by Jan Thomas, and Meow said the Cow by Emma Dodd.

We used some photos of items that are made from milk to discuss how useful cows are. We sang two fun songs this week one is Hand on my Head from the Wee Sing Silly Songs CD and the other is Pig on Her Head from the CD Best of the Laurie Berkner Band. I used puppets for this one and we sang about each child, so for example we same about Camden has a monkey on his head, Macey has a duck on her head and Rylee has an elephant on his head etc.

We played a game of "pin the spot on the cow" and then we made some cute cow masks with my die-cut mask as the base and added cow ears, horns and a nose. We drew on some cow spots also.

Our next session will be in June. Summer registration is June 4th at 10:30 a.m. Hope to see everyone there!
