Buongiorno! Have you been interested in learning another language but haven't had a chance to make it to Bilingual Storytime? Fear not, here is what we did August 2nd in our Italian/English Bilingual Storytime. We had a great time learning how to count to ten in Italian. Enjoy!
Stories and Songs from Storytime
We took some time to sing our ABC's, listen to Skinnamarink, and do a bit of Jumping and Counting (by the awesome Jim Gill) so that we could be ready to count in English before tackling our number in Italian.
Stories we read:
"Counts up ten dogs who are waiting in a shelter, then counts back down to one as each dog is adopted"--.
More Stories to Enjoy!
