Introducing a new feature here at Story Time 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! I thought this would be a fabulous way to share ideas.
My program this week: Preschool Story Time
For my preschool story time’s I start with a great book and then build the program around it. I generally use the same songs, and rhymes over the course of a session, but if you’d like me to include them for next week I can.
The Three Billy Goat’s Gruff
Fabulous Flannel Board Source (used for retelling) :
It’s amazing how quickly the children learned “The Three Billy Goat’s Gruff”
For the closing activity for this program we made troll grass heads:
items for decorating
1. Cut the ends of pantyhose (I get pairs from the $ store)
2. Have the kids sprinkle grass seed in the bottom of the pantyhose
3. Add the cotton balls
4. Tie it closed and shape into a head
5. Have the kids decorate.
When the kids get home they can add water to their cup, and place their troll head inside. Put it in a sunny spot. They will love telling you the following week about how their “Troll’s Hair” is growing:)
I’m looking forward to reading about your programs. Link up below and leave a comment.
