Free Emailed Storytimes.  

 

I'm a children's librarian, and many American kids learn English by going to preschool and attending storytime (circle times, mommy & me, etc.) classes at the library.  I'm now sending my lessons to parents who are either unable to attend my storytimes or would like to supplement their library time.

Mary Had a Little Lamb

Mary had a little lamb,
Little lamb, little lamb,
Mary had a little lamb,
Its fleece was white as snow

Everywhere that Mary went,
Mary went, Mary went,
Everywhere that Mary went
The lamb was sure to go

It followed her to school one day
School one day, school one day
It followed her to school one day
Which was against the rules.

It made the children laugh and play,
Laugh and play, laugh and play,
It made the children laugh and play
To see a lamb at school

Early Literacy Tip

 

Field Trip!
Take your child on short trips to new places, such as a school. Talk about what you see along the way and what you see when you get there. When you get home, have your child draw a picture of something he or she saw. Write a caption for the picture.  By talking, and drawing, your child will get more out of the experience.

Craft
Mary's lamb followed Mary to school.  So I decided to do a lamb craft!  Cut out a sheep from a template on google.  Paste cotton balls on.  If you want other crafts, more related to school check out my Pinterest board.
