Letter L Storytime

Scott Bahlmann

Opening: Shake My Sillies Out – Raffi

 

Book: Dinosaur Vs the Library – Bob Shea

 
dinosaur vs the library

(You can never go wrong with Dinosaur, and this is great for an opener since it introduces storytime behavior.)


Activity: Something Lost

 
CAM00257

(They were very good at this game, and we played a few rounds.)

We introduced a bunch of 'L' words, and then sang a song while one of them got 'lost'. The children then had to try and figure out which was missing.

Tune: London Bridge (from Miss Mary Liberry)

Everybody close your eyes,
close your eyes,
close your eyes,
everybody close your eyes,
We’re not peeking.

 

Book: The Littlest Llama – Jane Buxton

 
The Littlest Llama

(This book is just slightly wordy, but the kids stayed engaged, and the illustrations are so nice!)


Activity: London Bridge

 
lb1

London bridge is falling down
Falling down, falling down.
London bridge is falling down, my fair lady.
(child walks around adult, who is dropping their circled arms to ‘catch’ the child)

lb2

Take the key and lock her up,
lock her up, lock her up.
Take the key and lock her up, my fair lady.
(child wraps arms around adult)

lb3

Build it up with silver and gold,
silver and gold, silver and gold.
Build it up with silver and gold, my fair lady.
(pat hands on 'silver and gold')

 

(I've been trying to find ways to include the grownups more, and this was quite a fun activity for everyone! I had instructions to display, but everyone caught on quite quickly.)


Book: Leaves – David Ezra Stein

 
Book Leavesstein

(I simple story that fit quite well with our first big snowfall!)


Activity: Five Lions
(modified from a rhyme in Finger Tales)

 
CAM00255

(Such fun, the kids always love being able to 'Roar!')

Five  ferocious lions roaring to the sky.
"Roar," said the lion. "Boo!" said I.
And one ferocious lion ran away.
Good Bye!
(count down remaining lions)

 

Book: Lion’s Lunch – Fiona Tierney

 
Lions Lunch

(But this lion wasn't about to be scared away! Fantastic pictures, maybe a bit long.)


Activity: Loud Instruments

 

(Then we got to be loud, playing instruments!)
