Hi again, I just wanted to remind folks that StoryTimes at the library will be juggled a little bit, so for the most up-to-date times & such, your best bet is to check with the library’s online “calendar of events” before every week: http://www.mcldaz.org/library/userdef/branches/ud_mcld_branch_QC.aspx
Just as a side-note, on Wednesday of this week, we officially rocked the house by doing our first “run” under the parachute. This activity has been a bit touchy for me because it’s a bit unprecedented for the Queen Creek Branch’s ToddlerTime…so I need to be really careful or I won’t be able to do it anymore.
Part of being careful is not risking little ones bumping into each other by running underneath the parachute during our “activity” portion of StoryTime. So, w/ the caveat of “enter at your own risk” & “grown-ups w/ little, little, little ones may want to step back before we do the run”, we actually attempted the stunt!
And guess what? It went really well! No collisions, lost limbs, bumped heads, or tears of any sort! In fact, I look forward to making “the run” a part of our normal line-up starting next month. So RIGHT ON, to all those grown-ups who helped me get the crowd under control!
Oh, and also for next month, I hope to change our song line-up a bit…please let me know what tunes you’d want to sing & unless it’s really wacky, I’d be happy to give it a shot. For now, I’m thinking let’s keep the repetitiveness of “Hello and how are you” & “Goodbye, goodbye” (I’m trying to tackle an acoustic Beatles cover as we speak) and maybe ditch the “Hokey Pokey” (in part because I keep goofing the words!). And…let’s replace “Two Little Black Birds” with “Old MacDonald”.
This means more guitar & less finger-plays, so we’ll see how it goes! As always, all comments are welcome & your input is appreciate, whether it be positive or negative. All will be used to build a better StoryTime!
