Did you miss storytime? Perhaps it is just one of those days when you need a boost with your little ones. Fret not. We have gathered some storytime resources for you at home, thanks to Youth Librarian Ms. Lindsey. Follow our steps below or mix and match for the ultimate storytime experience.
Today’s Theme: Sharks
1. Energize with a Song
Start your storytime by singing a silly song called “Alligator, Alligator” with our friend Ms. Melissa.
2. Activity: Pretend Sharks
Pretend you’re a hungry bull shark! Bull sharks will eat anything they can find. For this activity, you can carry a bag or basket and “eat” things by putting them in the bag/basket. Pretend you’re a bull shark and “eat” silly things you find. Share what you ate with a friend or family member when you’re done eating.
3. Read a Book About Sharks
You can find picture books about all kinds of sharks at the library. While many are pretend, you can learn about real sharks in others. Even books about pretend sharks can teach you something amazing. Did you know that sharks are some of the oldest animals on Earth? Be sure to share your favorite shark with your family or a friend!
4. Sing a Goodbye Song
See you next time! Wrap up your storytime and sing along with our librarians to Skinnamarink.
