Welcome School

Presented at Welcome School on Friday, September 27, 2013.


The Day the Crayons Quit by Drew Daywalt, illustrated by Oliver Jeffers

(Gray Crayon is tired of coloring so many large animals, such as elephants and whales.  Orange Crayon and  Yellow Crayon are arguing over which color should be used to draw the sun.  Peach Crayon had his wrapper torn completely off and now he's NAKED!  Caution: There are some very unhappy crayons in this story.)

Prairie Chicken Little by Jackie Mims Hopkins, illustrated by Henry Cole

(Oh, no!  Prairie Chicken Little hears a rumblin' and a grumblin' and a tumblin'.  It must be a stampede!!)



If You're Happy And You Know It

If you're happy and you know it, clap your hands!
If you're happy and you know it, clap your hands!
If you're happy and you know it, then your face will surely show it!
If you're happy and you know it, clap your hands!

Additional verses:
...stomp your feet!
...shout hooray! a crayon! (stand up straight and tall and motionless!)

It was so very good to be back at Welcome School today!  As I told the students and teachers, I woke up this morning with a smile on my face, knowing that today was the day I would visit Welcome School!
Wesley enjoyed meeting some new students, as well as seeing some of his "old" friends again!  He especially loved receiving the picture that was drawn by Tessa!

I have developed a sort of tradition during my visits to Welcome School.  Each month I ask the children and teachers to share with me a song they have been learning in their classroom.  This way, I can learn the song too, and take it back to share with other children at the library.  Today they surprised me with a very silly song about chewy, chewy, chewy, chewy, chewy, bubble gum! 
My next visit to Welcome School will be on Friday, October 25, 2013!

Each Outreach Storytime includes activities that support one or more of the five early literacy practices identified as essential in helping your child develop the skills they need before they can learn to read. The five practices – singing, talking, reading, playing and writing –were developed for Every Child Ready to Read®, an initiative of the Association for Library Services for Children (ALSC) and the Public Library Association (PLA).
