Time for Twos – Thursday, 1/15/15 – Winter & Snow

Welcome to Time for Twos Storytime!

Just a few quick notes on being successful in our storytime program:

  • Arrive on time – our program is designed for toddler attention spans, so arriving late means you may miss a large portion of the program.
  • Participate – The Twos program is fun because caregivers and little ones get to interact!  Play with your child during storytime!  When they see you singing, dancing, and listening, they follow along.  Practice the rhymes and songs while in storytime so that you remember them throughout the week.
  • Get up and go – There is no expectation for little ones to sit quietly and attentively during storytime!  The kids are free to get up and move about the storytime area.  However, if your child becomes disruptive (climbing on furniture, negative interaction with other children, treating storytime materials inappropriately, etc), please remove your child from the storytime area.  Take a few minutes to refocus, and then rejoin the group.

This week’s theme is Winter & Snow.  Brrrr!

Our Books:

     Mouse’s First Snow (Thompson) – Mouse and Poppa venture out in the snow for a day filled with winter fun.  We read the Mouse books frequently, so your toddler should be familiar with this cute character!

     Little Bea and the Snowy Day (Roode) – Little Bea and her friends spend a day playing in the snow.

Action Rhyme – Walking in the Snow

Let’s go walking in the snow,
Walking, walking on tiptoe.
Lift your one foot way up high.
Then the other to keep it dry.
All around the yard we skip.
Watch your step, or you may slip!

Song – Dance Like Snowflakes

To the tune of “Frere Jacques”

Dance like snowflakes, dance like snowflakes,
In the air, in the air.
Whirling, twirling snowflakes.
Whirling, twirling snowflakes.
Here, there, everywhere!
