Mmm, Mmm, Mmm: All About the Letter M

Today's storytime centered around the Letter M: Books that begin with an 'M', had an author whose name (first or last!) begins with 'M', or had a character featuring, you guessed it, 'M.'

Books read:
Blue's Perfect Present by Kitty Floss (featuring Blue's friend Magenta)
Mary Had a Little Lamp by Jack Lechner, Illustrated by Bob Staake
Aaaarrgghh! Spider! by Lydia Monks
Mama's Little Bears by Nancy Tafuri

Finger plays:
Five Cheeky Monkeys
Today we used our Monkey Paw and a stuffed alligator to SNAP! those monkeys right out of that tree!

We decorated masks (A huge thank you goes to my friend LL from the Ridley Township Library)

Although it was a rainy Thursday and the crowd was small, we had a great time making masks and the children did a fantastic job creating different looks.

The idea of a "Letter of the Week" themed storytime was featured on a blog whose name, unfortunately, escapes me. I will give due credit and create a link as soon as I track down the blog.

Here are pics from the Mask Making Craft.
