What We Did in Storytime: Transportation

Today at storytime we read about cars and trucks and things that go!

OPENING SONG: If You’re Ready for a Story

BOOK: I LOVE TRUCKS

SONG: 10 LITTLE RACE CARS 

A short but fun counting song! We repeated this one a few times since it is very short, plus more repetition makes it easier for kids (and grown-ups!) to remember and join in.

BOOK: TIP TIP, DIG DIG

Emma Garcia is one of my favorite authors for storytime. This is a great book about several different construction vehicles working together to transform a big mess into a playground.

SONG: THE WHEELS ON THE BUS

The wheels on the bus go round and round,
Round and round, round and round.
The wheels on the bus go round and round,
All through the town.
Other verses:
The horn on the bus goes beep, beep, beep…
The wipers on the bus go swish, swish, swish…

An oldie but a goodie. While there are tons of different verses, we did the wheels, the horn, and the wipers on the bus.

WHAT I DIDN’T USE: 

5 Big Dump Trucks flannel board

Calling All Cars is a cute book about different types of cars, but it’s a little long for this age group so I decided to pass on it for today.

For our craft today we made a car of our own out of paper plates. I cut them in half and cut out simple windows, wheels and front bumper ahead of time. The kids glued down tissue paper onto the paper plate and then the parts of the car. I got the idea from here.

And that’s what we did in storytime today! If you’d like to see what we did in past weeks, click on the “What We Did in Storytime” tag. Just a reminder that next Monday, the 25th, instead of our usual Littles storytime we will have Messing Around, our super fun, super messy storytime at 10 AM. This will also be our last storytime of 2019, though the evening Littles on the first and third Wednesdays of the month continues as usual. Hope to see you there!
