In case you missed it – I’ve been doing STORYTIME for the past month or so in a closed group on FB (if you are interested in checking it out, you can request to join the group here – https://www.facebook.com/groups/495801317994142/). A note about this storytime…I do this for fun with my 5 year old and to continue to share storytime, lesson tips and ideas with my library world. While I hope viewers can get some tips on conducting a read aloud, I do not necessarily consider it “best practice.” Watch a few and you’ll see why 😉
Each week, I focus on an author, illustrator, or theme. I pair each book with an activity and snack. Sharing the books I read and the activities I suggest here. All of these ideas can be used in a face to face storytime or in your own virtual storytime.
