Toddler Story Time - dots and circles

Today's story time was simple:  dots and circles, and lots of interactive fun! We started by reading the book Circles by Marybeth Lorbiecki. The boys and girls helped me find and count so many circles! We decided that the yummiest circles were doughnuts, cookies, and cakes! Mmmmm... Next we sang "There's a little wheel a-turning in my heart" with Miss Nina. I love all the hand motions and sweet singing we did together! Then we were ready to read Ten black dots by Donald Crews that asked us to count the black dots making all sorts of pictures! After all of that, I asked the kids to help me read and interact with the book Press here by Herve Tullet.  It was so much fun to see the dots move and change depending on whether we pressed them, blew on them, or clapped for them! And finally, we watched the group OK Go sing "Three Primary Colors" in a Sesame Street segment. Before we sang our "Goodbye Song" we made pictures out of dot stickers.  Everyone made a colorful picture of green, blue, yellow, purple, and red circles. We won't have story time next week due to testing, so I look forward to seeing everyone again in 2 weeks!
