Opening: Shake My Sillies Out – Raffi

 Book: Duck! Rabbit! – Amy Krouss Rosenthal

(This was a great book to do with a partner …though I’ve used it myself before. Fun concept and we let the kids vote about what the thought the picture was at the end.)

Activity: Why the Frog Has Big Eyes – from the book by Betsy Franco

(See the full version here)

(A fun visual element for this story, the animals can look around and blink!)

Book: I Spy With My Little Eye – Edward Gibbs

(Awesome big bright illustrations, and a guessing game make this great for storytime.)

Activity: Matching Game

 (We passed out colored shapes, and then had the kids hold up the match to whatever we called out. A great way to engage them and get some wiggles out.)

Book: In the Foggy Foggy Forest – Nick Sharrett

(A great predictive story, the kids are suprisingly adept and recognising the silhouettes!)

Activity: Shark in the Park – From the book by Nick Sharratt

(See the full version here)

(This was a fantastic fun element to include. We projected the story, and had the kids stand up and look through their hand ‘telescopes’ with us.)

Book: Little Quacks Hide and Seek – Lauren Thompson

(We added a duck puppet to play mother duck with this book, another hit!)

Activity: Tube Telescopes

(Then the kids got to decorate their Safari Telescopes with toilet paper tubes, markers, and foam stickers.)
