Storytime Theme: Farms

I was contacted this week to do a private storytime for a local elementary school’s Headstart program.  I borrowed from the cow themed storytime we had earlier this semester and the kids made the cow puppets again.  However, I thought you might want to see the books and songs we did for this storytime!

Books:

Toddlers:  No Toddler books for this group

Pre K:

  • Farm Animals by Nancy Dickmann  (This non-fiction book explores different animals found on the farm and what their jobs are.)
  • Click, Clack, Moo: Cows that Type  by Doreen Cronin  (This funny story is about a group of literate cows who use a type writer to communicate their demands to the farmer.)
  • Rooster Can’t Cock-a-Doodle-Doo  by Karen Rostoker-Gruber  (What happens on the farm when Rooster can’t wake everyone up because of a sore throat?)

Craft:

Cow Puppets:  Repeat craft…See “Udderly Good Books” storytime from February

Songs/Fingerplays:

This lesson plan is free and you have my permission to use it all you want.  I just ask that you give me a little love by crediting me on any blog or social media post.  Thank you!
