Preschool Storytime, March 8, 2014: Ducks


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.





Happy quacking!

I'm a youth services librarian currently working at the Lamanda Park Branch Library while Central Library is closed for seismic repairs. I purchase juvenile fiction for grades 2-8, and some foreign languages. I do a lot of programs with school-age kids, including 3 regular book clubs (Windows and Mirrors, Read Around the World, and Lucha Libros), as well as writing workshops and STEAM/science programs. I also Infant/Toddler Storytimes and Preschool Storytimes, and outreach to local area preschools. 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 on creative writing activities for kids.
