Another Friday, another set of story times! We had a smaller group at family story time today – it’s spring break, and a lot of branches take a story time break, but we decided to motor on through, even with a smaller group than normal. To be honest, though, this smaller size was just about perfect – we had about 65 people in our meeting room, and it was really nice – not too empty, not too crowded. Here’s what we did!
Welcome Song: Hello, Friends
Book 1: Ten in the Den / John Butler
- I wake up my hands
- Wiggle your fingers
- Open-shut them
- Roly poly
- Little turtle in a shell, sitting so still…
- Zoom zoom
- Twinkle twinkle little star
- If you’re happy and you know it
- The elevator song
- Orca whale
Goodbye Song: Goodbye, Friends!
Remarkably similar to last week’s family story time, but I’m still struggling with my voice and my stamina, so I’m sticking to the old standards until I’ve got a bit more of my juice back!
Funny story – a mother came to tell me how her little girl was so upset at the part in “Ten in the Den’ when all the other animals have rolled out of the bed, and it’s just the little mouse alone in the den, missing his friends. So empathetic, and so sweet!
