This semester our preschool storytime underwent some big changes. The name of the program became Once Upon a Time Storytime, and both the date and time changed. We moved the program from Friday mornings to Thursday afternoons. With so many changes already happening, we decided to do something a little bit different with this group than other storytime programs. In an effort to promote continued attendance, we introduced two things that were ongoing throughout the semester. First, the kids got a single nametag, at their first visit to storytime, and then wore the same nametag all semester, adding a sticker each time they attended storytime. The big project we took on though, was a semester build activity.
We began our very first storytime of the semester with the story of Jack and the Beanstalk. Then at the end of storytime all of the kids got to “plant” a magic bean on the wall.
