Storytime

I do the 1-2 year old storytime at my library, so this is the rough outline that I follow and it usually runs about a half hour:

  • Welcome!
  • Letter of the Day
  • Flannelboard, unless it’s a song with a flannelboard, then I’ll do the Opening Song first
  • Opening Song: If You’re Happy and You Know It
  • Book (longest first)
  • Song with Props: Shake My Sillies Out, Raffi
  • Song with Props: Jumping and Counting, Jim Gill
  • Transition (Bounce Rhyme or Activity)
  • Cookie Time
  • Book
  • Fingerplay or Song and Fingerplay x2
  • Song with Movement: Silly Dance Contest, Jim Gill
  • Circle Time: Ring Around the Rosie
  • Closing Song: Children, Children, Turn Around (to the tune of Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear, Turn Around)
