Storytime Week Two: Lions and Outdoor Fun
Ms. Eileen is focusing on Outdoor stories this week, while Ms. Patty is tackling Lions as a theme. Ms. Eileen and her 4 to 6 year old friends are doing scratch-off leafs as a craft, and reading "Are You Ready to Play Outside" by Mo Willems, and "Acorns Everywhere" by Kevin Sherry, among other books. The two and three year olds have been making lion masks, a beginner cutting exercise, and roaring up a storm with this little action rhyme:
Lion, lion, jungle king
Doesn't whisper, doesn't sing
Doesn't yell, and doesn't snore
The only sound he makes is ROAR!!!!
We've also read "We're Going on a Lion Hunt" by David Axtell, and interpreted the very gorgeous "The Lion and the Mouse" by Jerry Pinkney.
