Every month we do Roataions where we take different classes to to a specific class. One teacher does science, cooking, exercise, music and Story Telling. I am in charge of story time. I try to make it interactive and fun, different then a story time they may have in their classroom. This month I choose the book 5 Little Pumkins by James Dean
After reading the story I re-did it via flannel board sinning to the tune of Raffies 5 Little Pumpkins.
I then picked 5 kids each giving them a pumpkin and a line in the story to say and acting out the story
Every month we will be making a calendar to go with the story of the month. I used die cuts from the school district and let them glue on the pieces plus the words to go along with it.
Using the templates I got from https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Traceable-Blank-Monthly-Calendar-Templates-2015-2016-873652 I added in school dates to remember.
We had a few extra minute before we had to rotate back to our own classes where I played pumkin songs while the rotated between the art table, pumkin sensory box and the reading station.
