Storytime: Mail

“M” is for mail! Take a moment and talk about the mail with your child. How do you mail a letter or a package? Where does it go after you put it in the mailbox? Who delivers the letter? Then have fun writing and mailing a letter to a relative or friend. Some of the books, videos, and activities will help your child discover the magic in mail!

Join us Monday, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays at 10:30 a.m. or Tuesdays at 6:30 p.m. in the Community Room.

Ages 2-5

Sing, Talk, Read, Write, Play

Tip

Songs that focus on body parts and their actions increase children’s awareness of how different parts of the body can start specific movements. By using their muscles to make the motions in a song, children can develop both their gross motor skills and body self-awareness.

Songs, Rhymes, and Fingerplays

Early in the Morning

Early in the morning
At eight o’clock
You can hear the postman knock
Up jumps Ella to answer the door
1 Letter, 2 Letters, 3 Letters, 4.

Oh, Have You Seen…

Tune of “Do You Know the Muffin Man?”

Oh, have you seen the letter M
The letter M, the letter M
Oh, have you seen the letter M?
It makes the sound muh-muh-muh

Oh, yes I’ve seen the letter M
The letter M, the letter M
Oh, yes I’ve seen the letter M
It makes the sound muh-muh-muh

Activity: Give your child the letter ‘M;’ have them hold it up when you say words that start with ‘M’ and keep it down for words that do NOT start with ‘M.’

Mailing Letters

Tune of “The Mulberry Bush”

(Write a letter, stamp a letter, mail a letter)
This is the way we mail a letter,
Mail a letter, mail a letter.
This is the way we mail a letter,
So early in the morning.

Lovely Letters in the Mail

Tune of “If You’re Happy and You Know It”

Oh, I got a lovely letter in the mail (clap, clap)
Oh, I got a lovely letter in the mail (clap, clap)
Getting mail is so much fun
Let’s see who sent this one
Oh, this lovely little letter in the mail. (clap, clap)

Tip

Phonological awareness is a set of critical pre-reading skills: the ability to hear, identify, and play with the sounds in spoken language — including rhymes, syllables, and phonemes. Children with strong phonological awareness skills are ready to become readers.

Books Presented

If You Give a Moose a Muffin by Laura Numeroff

Chaos can ensue if you give a moose a muffin and start him on a cycle of urgent requests.

Looking for a Moose by Phyllis Root

Do you really, really want to see a moose — a long-leggy moose — a branchy-antler, dinner-diving, bulgy-nose moose? This hunt for an elusive moose through woods, swamps, bushes, and hills is just as fun as the final surprise discovery of moose en masse. 

 

Duck Duck Moose by Mary Sullivan

Goose is gone and a young girl pleads with her friends, two ducks and moose, for help in finding their missing pal. The foursome ride through the farm on the tractor while other animals, like the horse and sheep, point them in the right direction. A gold key hung high in a tree appears to be an important clue to goose’s disappearance, but after several humorous attempts to retrieve it, the ducks and moose land in the mud and return home without Goose. Sorrowfully, it’s time for bath and bed. The next day everyone rejoices to find that Goose has returned, refreshed and happy after a vacation.

This is a Whoopsie by Andrew Cangelose

This is supposed to be a book about all the different things moose can do, like leaping and jumping and being really tall. But maybe Whoopsie isn’t the right moose for the job. You might want to pick a different moose for this book. Maybe instead we can do a book about falling down a lot? Yeah! Whoopsie would be great at that.This hilarious book about a clumsy moose shows that sometimes being a little different can make one great story.

 

Songs, Rhymes, and Fingerplays

Mr. Moose

Mr. Moose is very tall (put hands to head for antlers)
His antlers touch the sky (hand high up in the air)
They make a real good resting place (put hands out to sides)
For birdies passing by (flap arms like wings)

Five Big Muffins

Five big muffins on the window sill;
A moose came along and ate his fill.
Now how many muffins on the window sill?

Four big muffins……
(repeat until all are gone)

No more muffins on the window sill!

Two Tall Moose

Two tall moose standing on a hill,
One named Jack, one named Jill.
Run away Jack, run away Jill,
Come back Jack, come back Jill.

Crafts and Activities

M is for Moose

A simple moose hat from tracing hands and circles!

Additional Books

Moose by Aaron Carr

Animals in My Backyard introduces beginning readers to some of the many animals they might find in their backyard. Cougars, moose, owls, and other animals covered in the series have adapted to life near people. Each book looks at one animal and describes features that allow the animal to survive. With easytoread text, vibrant photos, and interesting facts, Animals in My Backyard teaches young readers about backyard animals as they learn to read.

Duck Duck Moose by Dave Horowitz

With no prospect of any friends around for the winter, Moose decides to travel south with Duck and Other Duck.

Hanukkah in Alaska by Barbara Brown

Hanukkah in Alaska is unlike anywhere else. Snow piles up over the windows. Daylight is only five hours long. And one girl finds a moose camped out in her backyard, right near her favorite blue swing. She tries everything to lure it away: apples, carrots, even cookies. But it just keeps eating more tree! It’s not until the last night of Hanukkah that a familiar Jewish holiday tradition provides the perfect-and surprising-solution.

Moosey Moose by Chris Raschka

Moosey Moose is mad. Moosey Moose is throwing a tantrum! Why? Well, he wants his pants, of course. And not his short pants—his long pants!
