Today our storytime was all about construction!

Our first book was:

Digger, Dozer, Dumper

Digger, Dozer, Dumper

Hope Vestergaard (words); David Slonim (pictures)

This is a book of poetry, so I read only 2 poems at the beginning of Explorastory to set the tone for the morning.

Our next book (and 1st full story) was:

Roadwork

Roadwork

Sally Sutton (words); Brian Lovelock (pictures)

After some songs and fingerplays we went on to read:

The Grumpy Dump Truck

The Grumpy Dump Truck

Brie Spangler (words & pictures)

The children really liked this story about a dump truck with a crabby attitude. Don’t worry, we eventually got to the bottom of why he was so surly.

For the craft, we made tool boxes out of construction paper (see what I did there? 😉 ), glue, crayons, and clip art images of tools. Inspiration for this activity came from here.

Here are a few photos.
