Storytime Weeks 3 & 4: apples, pumpkins and monsters, oh my!

For the last few weeks, we have been focusing on those favorite fall themes (leaves, apples, etc) and reading some favorites that lend themselves to this colorful and favorite time of year for many. Above is an illustration from David Ezra Stein's Leaves. This is how Ms Eileen feels when Fall comes around!
Ms Patty's classes also learned this fingerplay:

Leaves are falling from the trees
Swirling, twirling, in the breeze.
On the ground in a great big pile
Jump on in with a great big SMILE!

Ms Eileen's 4s & 5s enjoyed MONSTER stories this past week, so of course we had to do Tickle Monster by Josie Bissett. Not that the kids enjoyed getting tickled. No, not at all. And the 'Monster Boogie' song by Laurie Berkner provided a great backdrop!

JUST A REMINDER THAT NEXT WEEK IS THE LAST STORYTIME WEEK FOR SESSION I - CALL US, STOP IN OR REGISTER ONLINE FOR SESSION II - you can register anytime for Session II if your child hasn't done Session I - if they have, they can register after their last class next week for Session II.
