We’re back! Thank you for your patience! A few weeks ago we held our second Wacky Wednesday program! So fun!
And here is what we did for Wacky Wednesday Deux!
I love this clever book – and it is beautifully drawn. There are no words, but the pictures tell the story of a group of young kids who discover a bag of sidewalk chalk at the playground. The kids soon discover this magic chalk makes their drawings come to life. I had our group of Wiggleworms read the book to me – which they were delighted to do. Younger ones needed some specific direction via questions, but the almost 5 crowd was REALLY good at retelling the story!
BOOK: Ah Ha!
by Jeff Mack
This book tells an entire story using only the letters A and H. Hysterical. The Wiggleworms helped read this one out loud too. (See, you can READ!)
I couldn’t wait to read this one out loud to our group! Yup, after two books with virtually no words, this one brought down the house. It is every bit as goofy and wonderful as everyone says it is!
I was a little surprise to find out some of the kids didn’t know this song! Thank you to the grown-ups who jumped right in and helped out! We flipped each letter over to see a cute little dog – which reminded us to clap instead of saying the letter in the song.
This book was written by one of our very own Story Time friends! Claudia is now 5, but started writing this when she was three and used to come to Itsy Bitsy Story Time. Claudia read the book to us at our Wacky Wednessday Story Time today! The book is adorable and very funny. We are so proud of Claudia and are very excited that she donated a copy to the Newtown Library Company! Thank you! For information on getting your own copy please see: www.ghostsdonthavenoses.com.
TAKE HOME CRAFT: Blank Book
Wiggleworms were encouraged to create their own book and come back and read it to the group!
How it Went:
After so many weeks of being off it was great to see the kids today. The group was having fun but was very excitable. They LOVED helping read these books. As much as everyone enjoyed The Book With No Pictures it was hard to calm everyone down again after the story!!
