Introducing a new feature at Storytime with Jen
“Program of the Week”
Each Thursday I’ll be posting my favourite children’s program from the week. It could be a story time program, a school age program even programs for teens.
Below the post each week you’ll be able to link up and share your favourite program from the week too! Please include a mention of the feature in your post and link back here too:)
I thought this would be a fabulous way to share ideas.
Can you Make a Scary Face?
This summer’s reading club theme in Ontario is “Imagine” and this book by Jan Thomas is perfect for it.
It’s a wonderful participation book, and will get the whole family up and moving. I use this one to open the storytime. (there is a part in the book where everyone is invited to stand up and do the chicken dance!)
Not a Box
Not a Box by Antoinette Portis is the story of a rabbit that discovers a box only it’s not a box, it’s whatever he imagines it to be. After this story I show a small box and we all think (imagine) what else it could be…a boat? (we then sing row row your boat) a robot? (we stand up and act like robots.)..a space ship? we pretend to blast off into space.
Freeze Dance-one of my favourite games to play. Put on some great tunes (child friendly) and dance away!
Press Here by Herve Tullet is an interactive book.We followed the “instructions” in the book and the children and their grown ups loved it!
