In our storytime trip around the world, Cody is lost in the city!

Or is he? Can you help us find him? Make sure you fill out your passport and come along to the city. What will you find in the city? Find out in the following books and activities below.

Parent tip: when watching a read-aloud video with your children, try muting the volume and reading the story with your child.

​For the last few weeks in online storytime, we visited four different biomes around the world. Today is the final location we will visit. We have included a link to print off a passport so the children can keep a record of all the places we visited.

Early Literacy Tip and Activity:

Tip

Helping children hear the smaller sounds in words, the syllables, by clapping them out is one way to develop the phonological awareness. Children can hear syllables more easily than each individual sound in words.

~ Lambert

Activity

Play this model and mock game with your child’s name or with a word that might be new to them or a challenge to say.

1) Super duper 1, 2, 3. Can you say this word with me?

2) Super duper 1, 2, 3. Can you clap this word with me?

3) Super duper 1, 2, 3. Can you snap this word with me?

4) Super duper 1, 2, 3. Can you tap this word with me?

5) Now let’s say it!

Little Blue Truck Leads the Way
by Alice Schertle

The big city sure is a speedy, noisy place for a country truck like Blue. With everyone pushing to be first, soon there’s a giant traffic jam! But even a wrangle-tangle is no match for Little Blue Truck, who comes to the rescue in true Blue style.

The Wheels on the… Uh-Oh!
by Sue Tarsky

This bus is in trouble―it won’t be going through the town without a good mechanic! Can everyone work together to get the bus moving again?

Subway
by Anastasia Suen

Come along for the ride as a little girl and her mother hop on the subway. From spinning turnstiles and musicians performing on the platforms to people hopping off and on and lights flashing past in the tunnels, the sights and sounds of the subway have an energy all their own.

Little Elliot, Big City
by Mike Curato

Amid the hustle and bustle of the big city, the big crowds, and bigger buildings, Little Elliot, the polka-dotted elephant, leads a quiet life. In spite of the challenges he faces, Elliot finds many wonderful things to enjoy―like his friend Mouse.

The Elevator Song

Oh the city is great and the city is grand
There’s a whole lot of people
on a little piece of land
And we live way up on the 57th floor
and this is what we do when we go out the door.
We take the elevator up and the elevator down,
take the elevator up, take the elevator down
Take the elevator up and the elevator down
and we turn around.

In our storytime trip around the world, we have lost our giant teddy bear, Balloo!

He’s gone to the mountains! Can you help us find him? Make sure you fill out your passport and come along with us. Do you know what animals live in the mountains? What is the tallest mountain in the world? Find out in the following books and activities. Parent tip- when watching a read-aloud video with your children, try muting the volume and reading the story with your child.

​For the next two weeks in online storytime, we will visit four different biomes around the world. We have included a link to print off a passport so the children can keep a record of all the places we will visit.

Early Literacy Tip and Activity:

Tip

Rhyming is an important part of phonological awareness. It helps children break down words into smaller sounds and identify similar sounds in different words. This skill will help them when they sound out words to learn to read.

Activity

Sing “The Bear Went Over the Mountain”, but insert rhyming words such as: The bear went over the mountain, the bear went over the mountain The bear went over the mountain, to see what he could see. And what do you think he saw? And what do you think he saw? He saw a goat in a boat, he saw a goat in a boat. He saw a goat in a boat, That is what he saw.

Five Little Owls

Five little owls on a moonlit night
Five little owls are quite a sight.
Five little owls, are you keeping score?
One flew away! And then there were four.
Four little owls, happy as can be, 
One flew away! Then there were three.
Three little owls calling “Whoo! Whoo!”
One flew away! And that left two.
Two little owls having lots of fun.
One flew away! And that left one.
One little owl, we are almost done.
He flew away! And that leaves none.

In our storytime trip around the world, Cody has lost his umbrella!

That might come in handy if we have to go to the rainforest. Make sure you fill out your passport and come along with us.

Do you know what animals live in the rainforest? Does it really have four layers like a huge cake? Find out in the following books and activities.

Early Literacy Tip and Activity:

Tip

Scientific studies of the brain suggest that a child’s natural approach to learning is through play. Songs about weather can be followed by games. Tell your child what you are doing as you pretend you are twirling an umbrella or stomping in rain puddles

~ Lambert

Activity

Open an umbrella before singing songs about the such as, “Rain, Rain Go Away,” or “It’s Raining, it’s Pouring.” Talk about what an umbrella is used for, and show your child how to twirl the umbrella while singing.

This week, we explored what happens when we get lost!

Oh, no! I’m lost! Or… maybe I’m found! Inspired by the lost boys in J.M. Barrie’s novel, Peter Pan and the letter “B”, this week’s online story time was about things that are lost and found. Talk with your child about what they need to do if they get lost and cannot find you. This article at www.kindercare.com has some excellent tips on what you can teach and practice with your child at home before they get lost.

We’ve also included links for instructions on making a lost boy hat, an I-spy game, a coloring page, and even a hidden pictures game! We also learned a new song about the things children need every day to help them become happy lifelong learners! These things are: Sing, Talk, Read, Write, and Play.

Craft Activities

Hats are a great way to add character and fun to a party, play, or dress-up game. Instead of buying hats from the store, however, consider making your own. It is a simple, fun project suitable for all ages. 

The concept is that the kids gather a bunch of stuff and glue it to a piece of paper. They can then play I Spy with their piece of art. This easy and inexpensive craft idea is great for kids age 3 and older.

Need a game for siblings to play? Check out this I-Spy tray. Endless possibilities! Hundreds of choices to spy!

Early Literacy Tip and Activity:

Tip

The foundation of early literacy for a child before they reach kindergarten is based on five parts that a child should experience every day.

Those five elements are

1) Sing
3) Talk
3) Read
4) Write
5) Play.

Activity

Find an activity that your child engages in every day, and convert it into one of the early literacy elements described above. For example, when they brush their hair, sing, “This is the way we brush our hair, brush our hair,…” Or, at lunch, talk with your child about where their food comes from, milk from cows or apples from a tree in Washington. You can also have them play shapes on their plate by finding and naming shapes of food.
