Storytime: Love

Opening Rhyme: Open them, Shut them

Book: Love Monster by Rachel Bright

Rhyme: Hearts
Make a heart up in the sky.
Make it tall; make it wide.

Make a heart close to the ground.
Make it small, then sit down.

Book: Slugs in Love by Susan Pearson

Song: "If You’re Happy and You Know It"

Book: Hands Say Love by George Shannon

Rhyme: Love Bug
It begins with a grin (smile broadly)
It turns to giggle (put both hands on mouth and giggle)
You start to laugh (throw head back and laugh out loud)
Your legs start to wiggle (put feet in the air and shake)
You look all around for someone to hug (move eyes back and forth)
What can you do (shrug shoulders)
You've caught the love bug (hug another child or yourself)

Book: Penguin in Love by Salina Yoon

Song: "Head, Shoulders, Knees, and Toes"

Book: Love Monster and the Last Chocolate by Rachel Bright

Goodbye Rhyme

Craft: We made love monsters. Using a pompom for the body, glue on googly eyes, pipe cleaners for antennae, and a craft foam sticker for the feet. The kids were very creative with this craft and had a great time making their little monsters.
