Baby Storytime – Opposites

Opening Song
Welcome Song

Early Literacy Tip
Your little one is going to get up and move during stories. That's ok! They are still absorbing the language and seeing you enjoy reading even if they're not looking at the pages.

Shape Game
Today, I hid arrows. You can find out about this game here. (As an aside, figure out how you're going to explain the concept of opposites before storytime. It's really hard to define it without using the word 'opposite'.)

Rhyme/Movement
Itsy-Bitsy Spider
We did it once like normal and the second time around we said the Great Big Spider! The kids thought it was hilarious when I used my deep voice.

  1. How do you do your choral reading? Does everyone receive a copy of the book, or do you hold up the book and everyone reads along?

    1. I give everyone a board book of the story and I hold up a normal sized book. It's definitely an investment, but one that my parents really love!
