Storytime: Bedtime

Books of the Day:

Good-Night, Owl! by Pat Hutchins
Can’t Sleep Without Sheep by Susanna Leonard Hill
Goodnight, Numbers by Danica McKellar

Songs and Actions of the Day:

Ukulele Opening

Tune: This Old Man

Storytime, storytime,
Welcome to our storytime,
with lots of books
And fun for me and you
We will sing and dance too!
After we sing this for a verse we add other actions to the song (…clap your hands for storytime, clap your hands for storytime…) I end with …shhh be quiet for storytime…

Recorded Song: Laurie Berkner’s These Are My Glasses

I’ve been doing this song weekly for awhile now. The kids can’t get enough and parents ask me what it is so they can download it at home.

Ukulele Song: You Are My Sunshine

I sing this song to my daughter before bed each night, and know it’s special to a few storytime goers (shared with me during my Valentine’s storytime).

Ten in the Bed (Kinda)

I’m worried the traditional ten in the bed will get too long, so we are going to start at five.

There were five in the bed
And the little one said, “Roll over, roll over!”
So they are rolled over and one fell out.
Repeat until…
There was one in the bed
And the little one said, “I’ve got it all to myself!”

Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star

Digital Component

We are watching a short, Sesame Street clip on bedtime.

Letter of the Day: B

Craft of the Day

Just a coloring sheet!

Literacy Tip of the Day: Talk!

Talk to your children about things they do before bed. Recalling their bedtime activities and talking about how they are similar or different than those in stories helps with literacy comprehension.
