Story Time – Aladdin’s Magic Lamp

10:30 am ONLINE on Facebook – ages 2 to 5

Higity, pigity, bing bang boo! The genie has a wish for you! This week in Story Time, we read Aladdin and his Magic Lamp. If you could wish for something, what would it be? There are many ways to make wish. How will you do it? Find out with some of these books we read. Or perhaps you can make your own wish come true.

Early Literacy Tip and Activity:

Tip

Learning to subtract and add can be fun if you use a book with base ten as a counting activity. Help your child to see the different combination sets on their fingers all equal ten.

Activity

Read “Ten Magic Butterflies” or another counting book while using your fingers to make addition combinations. Then go on a “counting walk” and see how many addition combinations you can find that equal ten.
