Letter T Storytime

on August 28, 2014

Opening: Shake My Sillies Out – Raffi

Book: It’s a Tiger – David LaRochelle

(A very fun book, the kids are great at joining in on ‘It’s a Tiger!’)

Activity:  TV With T-Rex
adapted from the story Worm Watches by Kathy Caple


(This is a very fun story I adapted for our letter. T-Rex watches a movie with clowns and laughs, watches movie with monsters and hides, watches a movie with crying and cries, then watches a movie with kissing and falls asleep. Everyone loved it!) 

Book: Treasure Bath – Dan Andreasen

(A very nice book, great pictures and a pretty clear story even with no text. It’s always been a hit!) 

Activity: I Had a Little Turtle

I had a little Turtle
(Sign language for Turtle)
His name was Tiny Tim I put him in the bathtub
(set ‘turtle’ onto the floor)
To see if he could swim
(pantomime swimming)
He drank up all the water
(pretend to drink)
He ate up all the soap
(pretend to eat)
and now he’s sick in bed with a bubble in his throat!
(point to throat)
Bubble, bubble, bubble, Bubble, bubble, bubble,
(hands make bubble shape, and move farther apart)
Bubble, bubble, bubble, Bubble, bubble POP!
(hands end up far apart, then come together for a loud Clap!)

(This is a fun little activity. The kids that don’t already know it catch on really quickly.)

Book: Where is My Teddy – Jez Alborough

(I think the kids like the follow up story better, but this emphasised the Teddy, so we used it, and it was okay.) 

Activity: The Bears Toothache
from the book by David M. McPhail

(A very engaging activity. I need to make a post just for this story soon!) 

Book: Tickle the Duck – Ethan Long

(A super fun book! One day we had a crowd a little too eager to join in the tickling. The other day they were very well behaved, and on the last page we took the book around to give them the chance to tickle …since the duck had said it was okay.)  =]

Activity: Toy Instruments

(We finished today by playing with Toy instruments.) =P
