Letter Q Storytime

Scott Bahlmann

Opening: Shake My Sillies Out – Raffi  

 

Book: Little Quack’s New Friend – Lauren Thompson

 
littlequacksnewfriend

(A fun story about accepting difference, well received by the kids.)


Activity: 5 Little Ducks (quack)

 
fivelittleducks

(The classic song, with some bonus ducklings to act it out!) 


Book: Quick as a Cricket – Don and Audrey Wood

 
Quick-as-a-Cricket

(We acted out the different qualities of the animals, fun interactive potential)


Activity: Roll, Roll, Roll Your Hands (quickly)

tune: row, row, row your boat

Roll, roll, roll your hands, As slowly as can be. Roll, roll, roll your hands, Do it now with me. Roll, roll, roll your hands, As quickly can be. Roll, roll, roll your hands, Do it now with me.

Clap, clap, clap your hands… Shake, shake, shake your hands… Stamp, stamp, stamp your feet…

(A fun, simple activity that you can add to or reduce easily.)


Book: Little Raccoons Big Question – Miriam Schlein

 
littleraccoonsbigquestion

(Little Raccoon want's to know when Mamma loves him most. If the illustrations weren't so charming, I think this wouldn't have worked for storytime. It was okay though.)


Activity: Q words Quilt

 
Q quilt

(A chance for the kids to show off their smarts! ...which they love. )

Which items start with Q and belong on the Q quilt?

We showed each item one at a time until the quilt was full with Queen, Question Mark, Quarter, Quiet, Quail and Quidditch!

 

Book: Quiet Night – Marilyn Singer

(The kids were pretty amped, so we just did the first five creatures.)


Activity: Quail Craft

Then the kids got to make a quail to take home! They colored the card stock (identical on the other half of the circle), then attached the feather and pipe cleaner.
