Storytime on the Move!

The December 13th storytime  theme for our Playful Preschoolers was about construction vehicles.

Sally Sutton’s book “Roadwork” had a rhyming text throughout the book that played off the sounds of construction. The rhymes started with the planing of a road and ends with the  finished highway.

 

 

 

Also read was “Melvin Might”by Jon Sciecszka. It is a story of Melvin the Cement Mixer.  He’s worried ABOUT worrying, yet overcomes this problem to save a fellow truck in need.

 

 

 

The next book read was “Truck Stuck”, by  Sally Wolf.  This book was hit! The group enjoyed the simple text and pictures where the young character solves the truck’s  dilemma. 

 

 

 

 

The theme ended with the book “Roadwork Ahead” by Anastasia Suen. A mother and son, along with their pet dog, travel to Grandma’s and encounter different situations along the way.

 

 

The story time craft involved the making of a bus, firetruck and a construction vehicle. With simple shapes the items were completed with delight.
