a sneezes and noses and colds, oh my! storytime

Our storytime theme today was sneezes and noses and colds, and the early literacy spotlight was on print awareness.   We read The Long-Nosed Pig by Keith Faulkner, One Day in the Jungle by Colin West, and How Do Dinosaurs Get Well Soon? by Jane Yolen.   We sang some silly songs today, including Put Your Finger On Your Nose and Oh No I Have A Little Cold, and we counted the Five Little Monkeys Jumping On the Bed.

The adults discussed print awareness and ways to encourage the development of that skill at home.   I explained that one way to encourage the development of print awareness is to point to the words on the page as you read a book together, so that your child knows that you are reading those words, and not the pictures.  This will also show your child what direction words follow on a page.

We had a good time sneezing at the library!
