Around this time of year H often stands for Halloween...but today, we went with H is for Heart! <3 We did some singing and tracing, then went in to some reading. We read the books "The Best Story" by Eileen Spinelli, "The Circulatory Story" by Mary K. Corcoran, and "Daddy Kisses" by Anne Gutman. Then we felt our heart beats and noted their speed & strength. We did some dancing and jumping jacks and checked our heart beats again...and WOW they were stronger & faster! We finished up by painting some beautiful heart pictures that say "Wherever you go leave a heart print." <3 <3 <3

G-G...what begins with G? Gorilla! We started our Storytime by getting our tracing done and doing a little singing. We read some fun books. We read "Gorilla Garage" by Mark Shulman, "Good Night, Gorilla" by Peggy Rathmann, "Have You Seen a Green Gorilla?" by Viki Woodworth, and "Actual Size" by Steve Jenkins. Then we glued some actual sized gorilla handprints on paper and added our own handprints on top with paint. Look how little our hands are compared to those giant gorilla hands! :)

Very studious storytimers today...they did a great job on tracing their F's. We also sang the ABC's a couple times then read some great firetruck books. We read "Fire Truck to the Rescue" by Ann Martin, "New Truck on the Block" by Jo Hurley, another book titled "Fire Truck to the Rescue!" by Sonia Sander, and "Fire Truck" by Peter Sis. We finished up with some painting of firetrucks, firefighters, water and of course FIRE!
