One comment on “Five Little Whatsits…

  1. This summer dinrug our outdoor Family Storytime, I used props a couple of times. For Judy Sierra’s The Sleepy Little Alphabet I passed out magnetic alphabet letters(the frig kind) to each child ahead of the book. They were asked to listen for their letter and bring it forward to place on the magnetic board while I read the story. I also used the Ellison machine to make flannel pieces all using different colors, asking them to watch for their color while I read another book-which I can’t recall right now. Sometimes it gets the not quite so interesting books but great books a boost in your story times.
