Such a big word to start off a new storytime session. Yet, everyone is familiar with a cumulative stories and songs. Cumulative means getting larger by adding more. Popular stories and songs include The Farmer and the Dell, The Green Grass Grew All Round and The House That Jack Built. Since our current season is winter, our cumulative stories featured cold and snowy themes.
Caw! Caw! Everyone in the Fox Cities is familiar with the call of our friend the Crow. He's a popular topic this time of year. We read about the color black and learned how to sign the color black as well.
Fall is a fabulous time of year! One critter who comes to mind during Autumn is the squirrel. We celebrated the wonderful antics of being a squirrel during storytime. We danced to a special squirrel song, wiggles our fingers to a squirrel fingerplay and read squirrely books!
