The books we read this week were:
- Snowmen at Night by Buehner. I've read this one before, but this was the pop-up version! A fun story about what snowmen may do at night when nobody is watching.
- Snowballs by Ehlert. I love her books. Sweet Girl loved how the pictures were actually collages. Plus, you get to turn the book sideways to see the big snow people.
- What Do You Need to Make a Snowman? by Shertle. This was a new book to me. I liked how it had everyone working together to make a snowman.
We also did this cute song:
sung to "I'm a Little Teapot"
I'm a little snowman,
Round and fat.
(Open arms wide in a circle shape)
Here are my eyes,
(Point to eyes)
And here is my hat.
(Tap top of head)
I love to play with children,
Dogs and cats,
(Pretend to play)
And catch some snowflakes-just like that!
(Wiggle fingers downwards like it's snowing)
My girls and I LOVE story time each week. The girls get to see Snaily Snail (Miss Anna's puppet), interact with other children, hear some great stories and usually do a craft. I get a sheet with books to read and fingerplays/songs to do at home. Plus, the staff at our local library is AWESOME!
Here's how the snowman came together.
