Boo! It’s Almost Halloween!

Halloween books

Today in Ready, Set, Kindergarten! we howled, yowled, and booed our way through storytime. We read some not-too-scary books, sang “The Witch in the Night,” (to the tune of “Wheels on the Bus”), popped bubbles to “The Monster Mash,” and heard the story of the Little Witch and the Orange House.

Then all the kids made a ghost to take home.

Getting ready for Halloween at Family Storytime!

Halloween is less than a week away!  Family Storytime got spooky with Halloween books and songs.  We read about a fearless little old lady, monsters in a haunted house, danced to the skeleton song, and performed a classic fingerplay about five pumpkins.

For the craft we made spiderwebs out of paper plates and yarn!

A Pizza Storytime!

Everyone loves pizza! And everyone at Ready, Set,  Kindergarten! today loved our pizza-themed storytime.

Some of our books about pizza

We read some fun stories, sang “I Am a Pizza,” acted out a pizza story, and all shared a “pizza.” After the songs and stories, all the kids made their own pizzas.

Mmmmm, pizza!
