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.
