Z is for Zoo

Wow, our Storytime alphabet has flown by this year!    Today we did Z for Zoo.  We sang, traced our letters, and talked about lots of Z words.  Then we read the books "Put Me in the Zoo" by Robert Lopshire, "Peek-a-boo-at the Zoo" by Frank B. Edwards, "What Do You Do at the ZOO?" by Susan E. Goodman, "Peek-a Zoo!" by Nina Laden, and "At the Zoo" by Priddy Books.  We finished up by making some cute little animal enclosures, so the children were able to take home their own tiny zoo.  😉
