December!

Here I am!

What I want to know is how do you folks who seem to be just as busy as I am manage to update your blogs regularly? My blogging always falls aside to my Facebook stalking, I guess. Anyway, HERE I AM!

Quick storytime update….December storytimes looked like this:

For our 4k class –

Read Snowmen at Night

Did a fingerplay (5 little snowmen)

Read On the First Day of Winter and as I read, kids came up to the felt board and built a snowman (I have created felt parts to go along with the story).

Craft was classic black construction paper and chalk “snow scenes.”

Other storytimes were similar as far as books read goes, but for our Lion Cubs, we had a snack of hot chocolate and snowman shaped marshmellows. The craft was a coffee filter snowman on blue paper (with stickers and crayons to decorate). Apartment storytime craft was edible snowmen (3 large marshmellows, frosting for “glue,” pretzel arms, and gumdrop hat) – it doubled as the snack.

Winter break is coming to end. It has been a good one- full of friends, family, and dogs…now thinking ahead to 2011. Hubby needs his computer back now, so more later (hopefully not “later” as in February, but “later” as in much sooner than that)
