We’ve had some blustery storms coming through Knoxville this past week, so I decided to do a wind themed storytime. Here’s what we read:
First, we read One Windy Day by Tammi Salzano. Poor fox struggles to deliver mail in this book of opposites. Not the best for reading aloud to be honest, but still a sweet book. Next, we read Like a Windy Day by Frank Asch. This book has some very interesting illustrations and I love how the wind is personified. I think it helps the kiddos understand something that they can’t exactly see. Last, we read One Windy Wednesday by Phyllis Root. I’m glad I saved this one for last because the kids loved it. There are a lot of fun farm animal noises in the book. Perfect for reading aloud.
For our craft we made wind socks. I was worried there might be too many steps for the age group, but they did great! We did it one step at a time. We colored pictures across a single piece of construction paper. Then, I stapled the ends together for them.
They glued on streamers, and then I punched holes in the top and tied a string for them to hold. They really liked running around with their wind socks.
We also had a first time color-er! She usually just plays in the shop while we do crafts, but she sat down and wanted to color today! It was a really sweet moment and her mom was so excited. Storytime is made just for these special moments.
See you next week!
