This week in storytime we read some really fun books about kangaroos.
We started with Kangaroo Christine by Guido van Genechten.
This book is about a kangaroo named Christine who does not want to hop on her own. However, she makes a new friend and quickly realizes how much fun it is. This book was a great segue into us doing a little hopping of our own.
Next we read Where Are You Blue Kangaroo? by Emma Chichester Clark.
Lilly keeps losing her stuffed kangaroo, which makes the kangaroo very uneasy. I love reading books like this because the children always like to point out how the character has made a mistake- something they would never do!
That’s about it for books this week. We did do some hopping games. In one, each child was given a felt kangaroo and they had to hop around a table. We also practiced hopping on one foot.
Our craft this week came from one of my favorite craft sites, DLTK. We made our own kangaroos!
These girls told me that their kangaroos were best friends!
