This week was my last Evening Family Storytime for the first 6 week session. Now I have two weeks off before starting a new 6 week session! The theme for this storytime was “Things That Go Bump in the Night.” I used the regular Hello and Goodbye song/ rhyme. I used less songs and fingerplays than usual since some of the stories I used had songs or movement built into them.
