Preschool Storytime, March 8, 2014: Ducks

duck-puppet-white

Today’s storytime was all about ducks!  We sang “Six Little Ducks” with Raffi, and “Five Little Ducks” with a felt board.  Parents, if you want to make a toy that will reinforce counting skills and pair with an excellent preschool song, you can create your own Five Little Ducks finger puppets (made from a rubber kitchen glove!) or rock duck figurines (just take rocks and paint them!)–and better still, allow your children to make them for some creative play!

Here are the books we read.  I chose these because they have a fun dialogue format that allows for great reading aloud.  Click on the images to find them in our catalog.

I'm a youth services librarian working in the Children's Room at the Pasadena Central Library. I purchase juvenile nonfiction books for all sites, juvenile Spanish books for all sites, and juvenile DVDs for the Central Library. I do a lot of programs with school-age kids, including Lucha Libros, writing workshops, STEAM Careers in Pasadena, and other STEAM/science programs. I teach 1-2 sessions of Infant/Toddler Storytime each year. I love what I do, working with kids of all ages to inspire them to learn and use their curiosity and imaginations. Outside of my work at the library, I am also the author of a book, 36 Workshops to Get Kids Writing: From Aliens to Zebras.
