Toddler Story Time: Trucks

Read for the Record
On Thursday, October 3rd, the MWE Primary Grades are invited to participate in the JumpStart "Read for the Record" day, which features the book "Otis" by Loren Long.  So, I decided to take our theme of "trucks" from this little tractor who learns to be a good friend.

The books we read about trucks today were:
Product Details "Otis" by Loren Long

 "Demolition" by Sally Sutton

 "Little Blue Truck" by Alice Schertle

 "Smash! Crash!" by Jon Scieszka on Barnes & Noble Online Story Time

The songs we sang today were:
"The More we Get Together" by Howcast group
"Big Truck" Music Video by Rebbecca Frezza
"The Good Bye Song" by Out of the Box

We also watched a "Bob the Builder" short called "Muck's Train to Trouble" and  we colored an Otis sign to remind us to be a good friend.


For additional "Demolition" fun, try the following activities suggested by the Texas 2x2 Book Committee:

• Demolition is a story about reusing materials; it is a lot like 
recycling! Do you recycle at your house? 
• Go build something (blocks, rocks, sand) and then knock it 
down and rebuild. Remember, nothing lasts forever. 
• Next time you take a car ride pay close attention to any 
construction on the road, a building, a garden, or even parks 
and playgrounds.
• Do you have a box, crayons, and scissors? Well, recycle 
that cardboard into just about anything you can imagine. 


Keep on trucking, my friends!  Until next week!
