Storytime: Clothes

I'm currently doing a 2s Storytime at one library, and a 3-5 Storytime at another. So in order to maintain some sanity, I'm trying to pick one theme for both each week and adapt it for the different ages. Some of my 2s are REALLY little and some of my 5s are already in school.

I often do a 'clothes' storytime in Winter, when we can talk about LOTS of different clothes and hats, etc. But I came across the book My New Shoes by Leilani Sparrow and thought it was so adorable for my 2s that it warranted a Fall clothes storytime. Plus, the weather in New England has been crazy! 80 degrees one day and 50 degrees the next. And to be honest, what kid do you know that doesn't like to show you their shoes???


My New Shoes by Leilani Sparrow
Pete the Cat: I Love My White Shoes by James Dean & Eric Litwin
Vegetables in Underwear by Jared Chapman
Whose Hat Is That? by Anita Bijsterbosch

for the 2s I added these as options:

Maggie and Michael Get Dressed by Denise Fleming
Who's Under That Hat?: a lift-the-flap pop-up adventure by David A. Carter


'Grandma's Glasses'
'I'm Going to Take A Sweater' (found on Storytime Katie)
'If Your Clothes Have Any Red'

(No idea where this is from but I found in a file at one of my libraries from a previous librarian. The 2s thought it was great!)

'Baby Shoes'
(use your hands to cup together very small for baby, then larger and larger til your arms are huge)

Baby Shoes
Children Shoes
Mama Shoes
Daddy Shoes
HUGE shoes!!!

2s Activity:
We have different giant articles of clothing laminated and velcro'd for the felt board so we talked about which ones you could wear on that day. You can also sing 'I'm Going to Take A Sweater' as you use the pieces.
We also used our scarves and danced with them to a few songs on the 'Scarves' playlist.

3-5s Craft:
Since it's fall in New England I figured what better to make than a hat for a scarecrow? I used a FREE scarecrow hat pattern from Teachers Pay Teachers to make this:
