Family Storytime – Robots

Family storytime is for all ages, so I try to find themes, books and activities that would be suitable for a large audience. This month I went with Robots! Who doesn’t love a good robot?

Here’s what we did:

  • Song – Top of the Morning
    • This is a good song to warm up with because we stretch all the parts we will be using in storytime. Eyes, arms, legs, mouth, nose.
  • Rhyme – Say Hello
    • love this rhyme. Everyone claps along and at the end we say hello how ever I tell them to. Loud, soft, quick, slow.
  • Stretch – Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes
    • I like to do a good warm-up before getting in to my theme. We do this one three times, faster each time.

Then we get into our theme:

41odxxvlmcl

  • Pass Out – Power Buttons
    • As the kids came in I passed out red ON/OFF buttons. These are our very own robot power buttons and can be used to “power down” if we are too loud or to “power up” if we are doing a stretch or movement exercise. I also have a few rhymes that use the button.
  • ASL – Robot / Science / Electricity
    • I also teach my kids some American Sign Language to go with my theme each week. This is a great way to promote communication within our community and any way we can help ease the frustration when learning to speak is helpful.
  • Book – Boy + Bot by Ame DyckmanThis one is a little long but I think it works well with the theme and has a little humor to it.
    • Don’t forget to have your robots power down before61nvajggm7l-_sx408_bo1204203200_ the story so the room will be nice and quite! 🙂
  • Song – If You’re a Robot and You Know It from ScholasticWe received a book called “If You’re a Robot and You Know It” that has pull tabs. The book is too small to use but Scholastic had a free download of the song, so I decided to use it as one of my songs.
  • Rhyme – I’m a Little Robot
    • There are lots of versions of this, I’m a Little Teapot, robot remix. Google and you’ll come up with a ton!

I’m a little robot, short and strong. (Stand up straight). Here are my handles, (One hand up. One hand down) just turn me on. (Press our ON buttons) When I get all warmed up, (Shake in place) watch me go. Sometimes I’m fast (move robot arms fast) and sometimes I’m slow. (move robot arms slow)  

  • Felt Board – Building a Robot with Shapes20180416_145715
    • I decided we would talk about shapes by building our own robot. I created a lot of felt shapes and I asked the kids to help me pick out the perfect head, arm, etc. by picking shapes and colors.
  • Rhyme – The Gears on the Robot
    • This is to the tune of “The Wheels on the Bus” and it is one I created on my own, with inspiration from one of our pages. Please credit me if you use it!

The gears on the robot go grind, grind, grind 
Grind, grind, grind. Grind, grind, grind. 
The gears on the robot go grind, grind, grind all day long. 
(move hands in a circle) 

The circuits on the robot go beep, boop, bop. 
Beep, boop, bop. Beep, boop, bob.
The circuits on the robot go beep, boop, bop all day long.  
(use pointer fingers to press invisible buttons) 

The motor on the robot goes rumble, rumble, rumble 
Rumble, rumble, rumble. Rumble, rumble, rumble.
The motor on the robot goes rumble, rumble, rumble all day long. 
(jump up and down) 

The robots all around say “do the robot!” 
“Do the robot!” “Do the robot!” 
The robots all around say “do the robot!” All day long. 
(Do the robot dance!) 

  • Book – Rolie Polie Olie by William Joyce51c2azzsh5l-_sx260_
    • I haven’t read this one in forever and it was great to get nostalgic!
  • Song w/ Shakers – Rockin’ Robot by the Mother Goose Club Rhymes for Kids

I always like to end the same way:

  • Movement Exercise – If You’re Happy and You Know It
    • I tell the kids that I want to know how happy they are.
  • Rhyme – Say Goodbye
    • This is the same rhyme we started with, so the new guys are familiar with it by the end of storytime.
  • Song – Goodbye, So Long, Farewell my Friends by Music Together
    • I always put this one on as I go to open the door. Its a nice, slow, peaceful song to wind down on.

How’d it go: This was a really fun, themed heavy storytime. Haha! Maybe almost too themed heavy. But we liked our robot buttons and we thought some of the songs were super silly. I maybe wouldn’t do the felt board with such a big group because the kids really wanted to pick out the shapes themselves. But overall, fun was had!

That’s all for now!

Family Storytime: Día De Los Niños

Hi Guys!

In celebration of Día De Los Niños, I decided to try my hand and a semi-bilingual storytime. Día De Los Niños or Children’s Day/Book Day is “a celebration every day of children, families, and reading that culminates yearly on April 30.” (ALA) Many libraries plan bilingual storytimes to celebrate, which is what I did.

Not being a Spanish speaker, I practiced with a colleague of mine prior to the storytime to get my pronunciation as close as possible and to become more comfortable reading my bilingual books.

Here is what I had planned:

  • Song – Top of the Morning
    • This is a good song to warm up with because we stretch all the parts we will be using in storytime. Eyes, arms, legs, mouth, nose.
  • Rhyme – Say Hello
    • I love this rhyme. Everyone claps along and at the end we say hello how ever I tell them to. Loud, soft, quick, slow.
  • Song – Skidamarinkidink
    • A great warm up song to get moving and excited for storytime. Simple movements and it gets everyone on their feet.
  • ASL – Celebrate / Read / Book61qc5hF9ghL._SX497_BO1,204,203,200_
    • I also teach my kids some American Sign Language to go with my theme each week. This is a great way to promote communication within our community and any way we can help ease the frustration when learning to speak is helpful.
  • Book – Book Fiesta! by Pat Mora
    • My first book is in both Spanish and English and teaches us about Día De Los Niños. This was my longest book.
  • Active Rhyme – We Can Jump

We can jump, jump, jump
We can hop, hop, hop.
We can clap, clap, clap.
We can stop, stop, stop.
We can shake our heads for yes.
We can shake our heads for no.
We can bend our knees slowly
and sit down just so!

  • Rhyme w/ Scarves – Toss Your Scarves

Toss your scarves, toss your scarves
Toss them way up high.
Toss your scarves up in the air,
‘til they reach the sky.

Wave your scarves, wave your scarves,
Twirl them ‘round and ‘round.
Twirl your scarves one more time,
Then let them, all fall down.

  • Book – Marta! Big & Small by Jen Arena51npbYKbrUL._SY498_BO1,204,203,200_
    • This was a book in English with Spanish vocabulary throughout. This was a lot easier to read and a great one for someone who wants to do a bilingual book but is shaky with the language.
  • Song w/ Scarves – De Colores from !Vamos a bailar! Let’s Dance! The Dora the Explorer Music Collection
    • This is a bilingual song about color. Dora sings the Spanish and Backpack does the English. th
  • Rhyme w/ Scarves – Hokey Pokey
    • Since we had our scarves anyway, why not do the Hokey Pokey!
  • Book / Flip Chart – Te amo, sol, te amo, luna = I love you sun, I love you moon by Tommie DePaola
    • This was my last bilingual book. I had the big book in English and the Spanish on a flip chart. This was actually a great way to go because the audience could practice saying the Spanish with me. 51QMRITGpaL._SY443_BO1,204,203,200_
  • Song w/ Shakers – La Bamba by Joannie Bartel – Dancin’ Magic
    • Literally all the songs from Dancin’ Magic are awesome. But this one was a familiar song and entirely in Spanish.
  • Movement Exercise – If You’re Happy and You Know It
    • I tell the kids that I want to know how happy they are.
  • Rhyme – Say Goodbye
    • This is the same rhyme we started with, so the new guys are familiar with it by the end of storytime.th
  • Song – Goodbye, So Long, Farewell my Friends by Music Together
    • I always put this one on as I go to open the door. Its a nice, slow, peaceful song to wind down on.

How’d it go: Well, I didn’t get any cat calls screaming out that I was butchering the Spanish, so I take that as a success. For my first really bilingual storytime, I thought it went really well. I felt like I had a good balance of Spanish and non-Spanish activities to keep everyone interested.

That’s all for now!

Family Storytime: Bubbles & Bathtime

Back to work and back to storytimes! My theme for this week was Bubbles & Bathtime–mostly because I got a bubble gun and just had to use it! This was also a super special storytime because my mom brought my new baby 🙂

So what did we do…

I like to open and close my storytimes the same way.

  • Song – Top of the Morning
    • This is a good song to warm up with because we stretch all the parts we will be using in storytime. Eyes, arms, legs, mouth, nose.
  • Rhyme – Say Hello
    • love this rhyme. Everyone claps along and at the end we say hello how ever I tell them to. Loud, soft, quick, slow.
  • Stretch – Head, Shoulder, Knees & Toes

Then we get into our theme.

  • ASL – Bath, Bubbles, Duck
    • I like to include a few new ASL signs in storytime. I usually print my own flash cards from Baby Sign Language.
  • Rhyme – Tiny Tim

I had a little turtle;
His name is Tiny Tim.
I put him in the bathtub
To see if he could swim.
He drank up all the water
And ate up all the soap.
Now he’s home and sick in bed
With bubbles in his throat!
Bubble, bubble, bubble,
Bubble, bubble, bubble,
Bubble, bubble, bubble,
Bubble, bubble, POP!

  • Book – Get Out of My Bath! by Nosy Crow
    • This is such a fun book and can be very interactive. I have the kids shake side to side to make waves in Ellie’s tub.
  • Song w/ Shakers – Splish Splash!
    • Classic song and a fun one to shake to.
  • Flannel – Five Little Elephants in a Bathtub
    • Counting, colors, bathtime and elephants… what more can you ask for.
  • Rhyme – One, Two, Three Little Bubbles

One little, two little, three little bubbles
Four little, Five little, Six little bubbles
Seven little, Eight little, Nine little bubbles
Ten little bubbles go pop, pop, pop, pop, pop
Pop those, pop those, pop those bubbles
Pop those, pop those, pop those bubbles
Pop those, pop those, pop those bubbles

  • Book w/ Puppet – The Pigeon Needs a Bath by Mo Willems The Pigeon Needs a Bath!
    • I made this puppet ages ago and bring him out every once in a while. I also made a cardboard bathtub for the pigeon to bath in.
  • Song w/ Bubble Gun – I’m Forever Blowing Bubbles by The Hit Crew
    • Who doesn’t love bubbles! Trying out this bubble gun, if the kids get too crazy I may need to nix it for Family Storytime.

To close I usually finish with:

  • Movement Exercise – If You’re Happy and You Know It20161007_155100
    • I tell the kids that I want to know how happy they are.
  • Rhyme – Say Goodbye
    • This is the same rhyme we started with, so the new guys are familiar with it by the end of storytime.
  • Song – Goodbye, So Long, Farewell my Friends by Music Together
    • I always put this one on as I go to open the door. Its a nice, slow, peaceful song to wind down on.

How’d it go: I was pleasantly surprised that the kids listened to me and didn’t go crazy with the bubbles. It actually was really nice, so we will definitely have to invest in a bubble machine that goes further because mine didn’t shoot very far. Other than that, we had a good time!

That’s all for now!

Family Storytime: SUPERHEROES

Hi Guys,

I was really excited about this storytime! I just had an urge to do something with superheroes.

Here’s what we did:

I always start with the same warm ups:

  • Song – Top of the Morning
    • This is a good song to warm up with because we stretch all the parts we will be using in storytime. Eyes, arms, legs, mouth, nose.
  • Rhyme – Say Hello
    • love this rhyme. Everyone claps along and at the end we say hello how ever I tell them to. Loud, soft, quick, slow.
  • Song – Skidamarink
    • It’s a classic, I know you all know it!

From here we get into our theme.

  • ASL – Strong, Brave, Smart, Fly61bvkptglul-_sy431_bo1204203200_
    • I like to include a few new ASL signs in storytime. I usually print my own flash cards from Baby Sign Language.
  • Story – Be A Star, Wonder Woman by Michael DahlThis is a new one for our library and it is so great! Showing the kids how their actions are just like superheroes. If you just read the story and not word bubbles there is a great flow. I totally used my superhero narrator voice!
  • Finger Play – Five Brave Superheroes
    • I got this one from Storytime Kate. It’s your standard counting down from five rhyme with some movements thrown in.

Five brave superheroes (hold up five fingers)
Ready to save the day. (hands on hips in ‘superhero stance’)
One flies off to chase a villain, (“fly” one finger behind back)
Up, up and away! (stretch arms up into the air, i.e. ‘flying pose’)

 Count down from 4, 3, 2…

One brave superhero
Ready to save the day.
She flies off to chase a villain
Up, up and away!
Hooray for superheroes! (clap hands, shout hooray!)

  • Song – Dancin’ with Spiderman and Friends by The Hit Crew
    • 20170914_173259Just a fun song with a few movements to break things up. I stopped mine around 1:50.
  • Folder Story – My Many Colored CapesCheck out my post on this one for more information!
  • Game – Superhero Action Poses
    • I always like to include some fun movement/imagination game. For this one I had the kids put on their disguises, using their hands to make glasses. Then I would prompt them to become a superhero! Between each superhero pose they would put their disguises back on.
      • Fly like Superman; Run like Flash; Jump like Spiderman; Climb like Catwoman; Lasso like Wonderwoman. 513-iqwsj9l-_sy498_bo1204203200_
  • Story – Supertruck by Stephen Savage Very Clark Kent meets cars. A garbage truck by day a super truck by night. Another one you can use your superhero voice for!
  • Action Rhyme – Two Little Superheroes

Two little superheroes, (hold up 2 fingers)
Brave and true.

One wears yellow,
And the other wears blue.

Fly away yellow zip! (one hand behind back)
Fly away blue, zap! (other hand behind back)

Come back yellow. whoosh! (bring first hand out)
Come back blue. zoom! (bring other hand out)

  • Scarves w/ Song – We R Super Heroes by Robbert Bobbert and the Bubble Machine
    • I figured superheroes wear capes, so I passed out scarves and we waved them around to this song. It’s a quirky little song but it worked.

Finally, I always end with the same three things:

 

  • Movement Exercise – If You’re Happy and You Know It
    • I tell the kids that I want to know how happy they are.
  • Rhyme – Say Goodbye
    • This is the same rhyme we started with, so the new guys are familiar with it by the end of storytime.
  • Song – Goodbye, So Long, Farewell my Friends by Music Together
    • I always put this one on as I go to open the door. Its a nice, slow, peaceful song to wind down on.

How’d it go: This one went great! We were able to be in a bigger room this time, which allowed up to all move around a lot easier. A fun time was had by all!

That’s all for now!

Family Storytime – ART!

For this storytime I really wanted to use my folder story of Scat the Cat, so I decided to go with an Art theme. Similar to my Imagination theme of a few months ago but I mixed it up with different rhymes and books.

Here’s what we did:

I always start with the same warm ups:

  • Song – Top of the Morning
    • This is a good song to warm up with because we stretch all the parts we will be using in storytime. Eyes, arms, legs, mouth, nose.
  • Rhyme – Say Hello
    • love this rhyme. Everyone claps along and at the end we say hello how ever I tell them to. Loud, soft, quick, slow.
  • Song – Skidamarink
    • It’s a classic, I know you all know it!

From here we get into our theme.

  • ASL – Art, Colors, Paint & Fun61uefap5vjl-_sy497_bo1204203200_
    • I like to include a few new ASL signs in storytime. I usually print my own flash cards from Baby Sign Language.
  • Story – Blue Chicken by Deborah Freedman
    • This is a cute one that talks about colors and what to do when the best intentions go wrong. I also love how it looks like paper!
  • Movement Exercise – If Your Wearing Any…
    • I sort of adapted this from a few site, here’s how mine goes:

If your wearing any red, if you wearing any red, if you’re wearing any red… stand up and touch your HEAD!

If your wearing any blue… bend down and touch your SHOE!

If your wearing any green… stand and bow to the QUEEN!

If your wearing any black… reach back and pat your BACK!

If your wearing any brown… just turn yourself right AROUND!

If your wearing any color… jump up and shout HOORAY!

  • Song – The Color Song from Parachute Express20170703_170420
    • Just an upbeat song to shake our sillies out to.
  • Folder Story – Scat the Cat!
    • I found this one online and I LOVED it! It was also a really big hit! You can look at my how to post here.
    • I would definitely recommend making a sign with the chorus on it. I had a volunteer hold up the sign for me and this was a big hit.
  • Game – All the Children Were Sleeping
    • This is a game my mom taught me (she’s a nanny). You go “sleeping, sleeping all the children were sleeping. And when they woke up, they were ____.” Lions, tigers, bears. You get the kids to act out different movements and sounds. It’s a big hit for my kids. Remember to turn them back to boys and girls at the end.
  • Action Rhyme – This is the way… art version61syrqojfnl-_sx425_bo1204203200_
    • You can get the words here.
  • Story – Ain’t Gonna Paint No More! 
    by Karen Beaumont

    • I passed out scarves and we pretended that our scarves were our paintbrushes and while I sang the story, the kids painted their arms, legs, heads…
  • Scarves w/ Song – De Colores from Dora’s World Adventure CD
    • We went through two verses of this one, so we got the Spanish and English versions of the son.

Finally, I always end with the same three things:

81ljkjf35hl-_sy355_

  • Movement Exercise – If You’re Happy and You Know It
    • I tell the kids that I want to know how happy they are.
  • Rhyme – Say Goodbye
    • This is the same rhyme we started with, so the new guys are familiar with it by the end of storytime.
  • Song – Goodbye, So Long, Farewell my Friends by Music Together
    • I always put this one on as I go to open the door. Its a nice, slow, peaceful song to wind down on.

How’d it go: We had a couple of screamers in this storytime but overall it went pretty well. The parents put up with my singing and they all loved participating in Scat the Cat. About 80 people in total.

That’s all for now!

Family Storytime: Summer Time Snacks

For this storytime, I wanted to focus on all the yummy snacks we get to eat over the summer. Especially, with fourth of July coming up where we get to pig out on all these delicious treats.

Here’s what we did:

I usually start with many of the same warm ups:

  • Song – Top of the Morning
    • This is a good song to warm up with because we stretch all the parts we will be using in storytime. Eyes, arms, legs, mouth, nose.
  • ASL – Hello Friends
    • I like to use sign language in my story time. We go over the signs for: Hello, Friends, Time and Say. Thanks to Jbrary for this one!
  • Song – Hokey Pokey
    • Once we were warmed up we did a little hokey pokey to shake things up.

From here we get into our theme.41zqronjptl-_sy343_bo1204203200_

  • ASL – Food/Eat, More, Ice Cream, Summer
    • I like to teach my my kids a few American Sign Language signs at the start of every storytime. This helps foster communication and with a large deaf community in our town it’s a great tool to have.
  • Movement Rhyme –  Two Green Apples

Way up high in an apple tree

(Raise Arms High)

Two green apples smiled at me.

(Big Exaggerated Smiles)

So I shook that tree as hard as I could,

(Pretend to Shake tree)

And down fell the apples. Mmmm, they were good!

(Rub Tummy)

  • Story – The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle’41b16y3md8l
    • A colleague of mine has this one in lap theater format. I borrowed it for this storytime.
  • Song – We’re Going on a Picnic by Raffi
    • This is a fun little song to give my voice a little break. And picnics are fun!
  • Flannel / Movement Exercise – Ice Cream Scoop
    • The kids use their fists, one for the cone and one as the ice cream scoop and we count as we add ice cream to the cone. 20170624_155814

First we need a cone, Nice and crunchy

Then we need some ice cream, Sweet and yummy,

Scoop ’em on; stack ’em on’ Up to the sky

We love ice cream; my, oh my!

First comes vanilla, Cold and sweet

Then comes chocolate A delicious treat.

Here’s some strawberry; Orange sherbet, too,

 

One scoop, two scoops,

Three scoops, four

We love ice cream Let’s have some more!

A super-duper scooper cone Just for you!

  • Story – The Watermelon Seed by Greg Pizzoli 51chadzju3l-_ac_us218_I used my Alligator puppet to tell this story. He had a felt watermelon to eat and at the end he “spits” a seed (crumpled ball) into the audience.
  • Game – Stoplight freeze dance
    • I created red, yellow and green circles on popsicle sticks.
    • When I held up the green, they’d drive their cars. Yellow and they would drive in slow motion. Red and they would have to freeze in place.
    • I showed them in different orders and at different paces to make it more fun. A freeze dance for cars!
  • Movement Rhyme – Banana’s Unite
    • This is the silliest, cheerleader-esq, movement rhyme

Bananas unite (place arms over head) 
Bananas split (open arms and place at sides) 
Peel banana, peel, peel banana (move to left) 
Peel banana, peel, peel banana (move to the right) 
Bananas to the left (circle arms to the left) 
Bananas to the right (circle arms to the right) 
Peel it down the middle and (uh) take a bite (grab and pull from out in front of you) 

  • Story – Should I Share My Ice Cream? by Mo Willems51lnloyjufl-_sx348_bo1204203200_
      • Ice cream is an iconic summer snack, so of course I had to include it. I also had cut outs of Elephant and Piggy from a display I did a while back, so I thought I could pin them up when I do this story.

     

  • Song w/ Shakers – Mr. Sun
    • We just shake our shakers and dance. By this point in storytime we just need to dance!

img_20160514_152037Finally, I always end with the same three things:

  • Movement Exercise – If You’re Happy and You Know It
    • I tell the kids that I want to know how happy they are.
  • ASL – Goodbye Friends
    • We learn to say goodbye in ASL and use the same signs and song as our hello.
  • Song – Goodbye, So Long, Farewell my Friends by Music Together
    • I always put this one on as I go to open the door. Its a nice, slow, peaceful song to wind down on.

How’d it go: This one went pretty well. A decent crowd with lots of little, little ones this time. Everyone put up with my use of the lap theater for The Very Hungry Caterpillar, which I feel like I need three hands for, and fun was had by all. We got a little fidgity toward then end and could have used another song. Other than that a good storytime.

That’s all for now!

Family Storytime: Building

For this storytime I figured we’d try to keep in line with our Summer Reading theme of Build a Better World and focus on all things building and construction.

Here’s what we did:

I always start with just about the same warm ups:

  • Song – Top of the Morning
    • This is a good song to warm up with because we stretch all the parts we will be using in storytime. Eyes, arms, legs, mouth, nose.
  • Rhyme – Say Hello
    • love this rhyme. Everyone claps along and at the end we say hello how ever I tell them to. Loud, soft, quick, slow.
  • Song – Tap Your Toes and Follow Me by Susan Salidor
    • This is just a easy song with simple movements to get us warmed up.
  • Movement Exercise – Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes
    • Now that we are warmed up we get moving with this classic. Do it three times faster and faster each time.

From here we get into our theme.

  • ASL – Summer. Read. Build.
    • I like to teach my my kids a few American Sign Language signs at the start of every storytime. This helps foster communication and with a large deaf community in our town it’s a great tool to have.
  • Movement Exercise – Cranes61dm42gzvul-_sx484_bo1204203200_
    • We pretended we moved like cranes; reaching up high and low and all around. You can find the words at: Jen in the library.
  • Story – Rex Wrecks It! By Ben Clanton
    • Kids can always relate to building things and then knocking them down. I love this one because you know what’s coming and so do the kids.
  • Song -Shake my Sillies Out
    • By this time we were ready to get our wiggles out so I played this classic and we shook out all the sillies.
  • Rhyme w/ Prop – Five Little Nails
    • I made my own version from Mel’s Desk. This was such an easy and awesome prop!
      51hd0awvwbl-_sx430_bo1204203200_
  • Flannel Board – Construction Countdown by K.C. Olson
    • I actually created my own flannel board using the vehicles listed in the book. We counted 10 dump trucks, 9 cement mixers, etc. Counting is popular with this crew.
  • Game – Sleeping sleeping sleeping all the children were sleeping
    • This is a game my mom uses when she nannies. Basically, you put the kids to sleep:
      • Sleeping, sleeping all my friends were sleeping. And when they woke up they were… (name an animal to act out).
    • Don’t forget to turn them back to good boys and girls at the end!
  • Story – Goodnight, Goodnight Construction Site by Sherri Duskey 61tbwcfq1wl-_sy487_bo1204203200_Rinkey and Tom Lichtenheld
    • This is a longer one then I normally do but I cut down on how many vehicles we say goodnight to.
  • Movement w/ Scarves – Toss Your Scarves
    • Simple rhyme and lets us use our scarves more than once.
  • Song w/ Scarves – Let’s Go Fly A Kite (yes the Mary Poppins song 🙂
    • I pass out scarves and we pretend they are kites while we sing along.

Finally, I always end with the same three things:

  • Movement Exercise – If You’re Happy and You Know It
    • I tell the kids that I want to know how happy they are.
  • Rhyme – Say Goodbye
    • This is the same rhyme we started with, so the new guys are familiar with it by the end of storytime.
  • Song – Goodbye, So Long, Farewell my Friends by Music Together
    • I always put this one on as I go to open the door. Its a nice, slow, peaceful song to wind down on.

How’d it go: This one started off really great. We got a little fussy toward the end so I barely read any of Goodnight, Goodnight Construction Site and pretty much went straight to the scarf song. With a big crew like this it is good to have lots of songs and movements ready just in case we can’t sit still.

That’s all for now!
