Theme Thursday: Back to School

It's that time of the year again. And with a lot of my story time kids starting pre-school or daycare for the first time, a story time to ease them into the transition seemed in order.

Song: Good Morning Dear Earth

Flannel: Alphabet Soup- SCHOOL

Flannel: 5 Yellow Ducks

Action Rhyme: Big, Big, Big

Baby Bounce: Criss Cross, Line, Line

Book: Pete the Cat: Rocking in My School Shoes by Eric Litwin

Song: Knees Up Mother Brown from Raffi: The Singable Songs Collection

Song: Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes

Book: School Bus by Donald Crews

Flannel: The Bus for Us

Song: Turn Around from Getting to Know Myself

Make and Take Craft: The Bus for Us

-construction paper
-construction paper school bus cut-outs
-construction paper black circles (wheels)
-glue sticks

Process: Before story time I cut out the school bus shapes and the wheels. After story time I distributed the glue, crayons and cut outs and let the kids go crazy.

Time: Prep took 25 minutes, the craft took 45.
