Underwear – Preschool Storytime

We got silly today at our preschool storytime with books all about UNDERWEAR!


Books We Shared

 

We started things off with a book about counting, sharing, and of course, UNDERWEAR: One Big Pair of Underwear by Laura Gehl and Tom Lichtenheld.  This rhyming book is a wonderful rhythmic read.

Have you ever visited a zoo?  Did the animals wear underwear?  No?  Then you must have never been to the place discussed in our second book, The Underpants Zoo by Brian Sendelbach.  We learned all about the different types of underpants the animals like to wear!  Some might surprise you…


Flannelboard Story

What Color is Bear’s Underwear? based on the book by Todd H. Doodler.

With today’s flannelboard we got to take a peek at all the different colors of underwear Bear wears throughout the week.  We practiced colors, days of the week, and counting!
