Miss storytime? You can practice many of the early literacy concepts we use in storytime at home! Don't forget to sign up for text alerts so you can make it to the next storytime!

Theme: Let's eat!

Use the five early literacy practices; talking, singing, reading, playing and writing with these books and projects!

TALK about rhymes. Reading and talking about rhymes helps children hear the smaller sounds in words and gets them ready for reading. Look for Mother Goose rhymes in the TALES/Nursery neighborhood in the picture books.

Get ready to WRITE by cutting out your food shape and decorating it. Use crayons or markers or glue on rice or other seeds.

SING some fun food songs from Jbrary, found online here

PLAY with your food! Check out the fun books by Saxton Freymann (E FRE in the picture books) to see some cool ways to turn your fruits and vegetables into Food For Thought.
