Storytime: Cats

on October 4, 2013

This week my theme for Family Storytime was Cats! As usual, I used my regular Hello and Goodbye song/ rhyme.

Book: Kitten’s First Full Moon by Kevin Henkes

Song: “If You’re a Kitty and You Know It”
If you’re a kitty and you know it, say meow.
If you’re a kitty and you know it, say meow.
If you’re a kitty and you know it, then your face will surely show it.
If you’re a kitty and you know it, say meow.
Lick your paws, show your claws, swish your tail, do all four.

Book: Pete the Cat: I Love My White Shoes by Eric Litwin

Some of kids already knew Pete the Cat, and others didn’t. Everyone enjoyed it though and had fun participating!

Flannel Story: Three Little Kittens

After the storytime, I had a group of kids that wanted to play with the felt pieces so we spent a few minutes putting the mittens on and off the kitties and talking about pie. Adorable.

Book: How to Be a Cat by Nikki McClure

In this simple book, each page has an image with one word of something a cat does (ex. lick, chase, find..) I made the book an activity by having the kids mimic the cats on each page.

Book: Pete the Cat and His Four Groovy Buttons by Eric Litwin

Fingerplay: “Kitty Cat, Pounce”
Kitty cat, kitty cat
Sneaks out of the house.
Kitty cat, kitty cat
Creeps up to a mouse,
And … pounce!
Kitty cat, kitty cat
Creeps up to a bird.
Kitty cat, kitty cat
Is not even heard
And … pounce!
But the mouse ran
And the bird flew away,
So kitty cat, kitty cat found
A ball of yarn
To play … pounce!
