Valentine’s Day Storytime (use it next year!)

I am working on lesson plans and I ran across the storytime plan I left for my sub to do with our little Lion Cubs while I was out…it was Valentine’s Day themed – enjoy!

*Welcome and tell them that today’s theme is FRIENDS and LOVE – just in time for Valentine’s Day.

*Read My Heart is Like a Zoo

Do Little Red Valentine activity (from http://librarystorytimeabcs.blogspot.com/2012/01/flannel-friday-little-red-valentine.html): hand them each a different color heart. When you call out their color, they can come and put it up on the flannel board. If needed, you can give more than one kid the same color heart.

Little Red Valentine, I love you.

Little Red Valentine, I love you.

Little Red Valentine, I love you.

Orange one says, “I do, too!”

 

Little Orange Valentine, I love you.

Everyone says, “We do too!”

Do this movement activity (from http://storytimekatie.com/2011/02/24/love/):

 “Little Heart”
I have a little heart, (place hand over heart)
And it goes thump, thump, thump (pat chest three times)
It keeps right on beating,
When I jump, jump, jump (jump three times)
I get a special feeling, when I look at you. (point to child)
It makes me want to give you a hug or two. (hug yourself)

Read Sweet Hearts After reading, ask them what THEY love.

Tell them about craft – their own “sweet heart” (from: http://www.creativefamilyfun.net/2012/01/silly-heart-puppets.html)
