In our first week back from summer, the Wiggleworms started with our Opening Song, where we said hi to the librarian, the mural, the curtains and our Story Time friends.
BOOK: Wacky Wednesday
by Theo LeSeig (aka Dr. Seuss)
illustrated by George Booth
Classic Dr. Seuss! Kids love wacky out of sync drawings and sing songy rhyme! Tons of fun!
Song: “Put Your Hands Up High!”
Put your hands up high!
Put your hands down low!
Put your hands in the middle and wiggle them so!
Put your elbows to the front,
Put your elbows to the back,
Put your elbows to the side,
And now QUACK, QUACK, QUACK!

BOOK: I Took My Frog to the Library
by Eric A. Kimmel
Illustrated by Blanche Sims
More goofy fun! Different animals cause different problems in the library. Laugh-out-Loud silly with a great reminder about library ettiquette.
BOOK: Slop Goes the Soup
by Pamela D. Edwards and Harry Cole
It all starts with Warthog sneezing into a bowl of soup… AHHH-CHOOO! Using only onomatopoeia (words that sound like what they mean) this crazy story got the kids chuckling! After reading the book we discussed what onomatopoeia is and came up with some words that weren’t used in the book. A little crazy, but lots of fun. Special thanks to my own 4 y.o. for checking this book out of the library.
One of these things is not like the other,
Which one is different?
Do you know?
Tell me which thing is not like the other,
And I’ll tell you if it is so!
Great conversation starter! There are tons of different versions and videos of this game on YouTube! Check it out! For more information on this game look at my Flannel Friday post!

Hilarious book about 3 moose and a chicken. Kids thought it was a total riot!
TAKE HOME CRAFT: Wacky Worksheet!
Wiggleworms took home this 2 sided coloring page and worksheet. Click on the images to link to the sources I found these awesome worksheets on!
How it Went:
So wonderful to see all of our Wiggleworms, include some Itsy Bitsies who have moved up and meet some new Story Time friends too! The new Bananna Break went GREAT! Books were all a huge hit, and no one seemed to worried that our craft time is now a take home craft! Tons of fun! Went so well I am planning on having MORE Wacky Wednesday Story Times!
