My predictions with these stories…
Today’s predictions were pretty much on. Both the stories were about the alphabet so I figured the kids would go with that lead. The Apple Pie ABC though was about a dog and I really thought the kids would bring up dogs more and veer off into that topic, but they didn’t…


Activities Produced from that Story:
Today we went to the public libraries story time that they offer at the park on Tuesdays so we based our activities today off of the books that they read….

Went to story time
Played alphabet games at story time
Learn about how alphabets in other countries are different
Did a Egyptian alphabet craft
Made a guess the starting letter or the letter sound game out of our alphabet blocks
Danced to some Chicka Chicka Boom Boom music

What We Learned Today:
Learned about the community and neighborhood as we walked to story time
Worked on using our listening ears and manners while at an event outside of the child care
Used large muscles while dancing
Worked on decision making/problem solving when figuring out where to sit at story time and how many/who would sit on each blanket we brought.
Worked on the alphabet
Worked on fine motor skills when coloring & cutting the Egyptian craft
Learned about culture when talking about other countries alphabets & doing the Egyptian craft
Learned letter sounds
Worked on what letters words start with
Worked on counting when playing with the blocks
