Fairy Tale Storytime

Scott Bahlmann

Opening: Shake My Sillies Out – Raffi


Book: Emerald Tree – Janet Palazzo-Craig


(I like this story, but the kids were a little antsy toward the end. Better told than read.)

Activity: The Cow Jumped...


(Had a cow puppet and a moon prop, started the Hey Diddle Diddle but had the cow jump under, behind, around, onto the moon. Finally the kids helped me get it right! from Liesl Johnson)

Book: The End – David LaRochelle


(This was a lot of fun. I first asked if anyone knew how a fairy tale ended, and one boy shouted out "And they all lived happily ever after" [bless him] which is how this story begins!)

Activity: The Troll -
from the CD Animal Songs by Geof Johnson


(The kids liked moving, but it felt kind of awkward. I think I just wasn't familiar enough with the song.)

Book: In the Foggy Foggy Forest - Nick Sharratt


(I thought this would be more popular, while the  kids liked it they weren't all gung ho.)

Shadowplay: Masha and the Bear
(see the full version here)


(A traditional Russian tale that I made a shadowplay for during Russian Storytime.)

Book: Falling for Rapunzel by Leah Wilcox


(Very cute, quite a few words had the kids confused though I think. Still, they got the general meaning, the parents enjoyed it more.)

Activity: Dancing in Bubbles


(Played some classical music, it was a ballroom in my imagination at least!)
