Themeless Storytimes Banner

Opening Rhyme:  The More We Get Together (with ASL)

First Book:  Chengdu Could Not, Would Not Fall Asleep by Barney Saltzberg

Activity:  There’s Someone in My Garden

Song Book:  If You’re Happy and You Know It by Jane Cabrera

Rhyme Cube:  Itsy Bitsy Spider

Movement Book:  I Got the Rhythm by Connie Schofield-Morrison

Short Book:  This Book Just Ate My Dog by Richard Byrne

Activity:  Spider on the Floor with Scarves

Calm Down Book:  How Do Dinosaurs Say Goodnight by Jane Yolen

Closing Rhyme:  Put Your Hands Up High

I just want to mention that as I was typing this, I realized that this storytime has a lot of similarities in it!  It starts and ends with books about bedtime.  The song book has a lot of movement involved, and the movement book has a song-like rhythm to it.  And of course the rhyme cube landed on Itsy Bitsy Spider on the day that I was planning to do Spider on the Floor as an activity.
