On Thursday night the 25th, we used the book, “Tell Me About Your Day Today,” by Mem Fox. We used our words to talk about what we saw, heard, smelled, and tasted that day. On Thursday nights, Story Hour is a family event, starting at 7 p.m. and ending at 7:30 with a good night song. We try to keep it gentle, don’t dance or get crazy, and hope that it’s a nice winding down of a busy day.
On Friday the 26th we used the book, “Mice,” by Rose Fyleman, with illustrations by the great Lois Ehlert. We used shapes to create our own mice. Some of the children used precut shapes; yes, that is what I was doing at the desk with scissors and brightly colored foam. Other children used scissors to cut their own shapes. The Friday Story Hours are planned for children 3-5, but younger children can usually do our art projects with a little help from mom or dad.
