My bilingual family storytimes all follow the same outline, and I fill in the blanks with books, flannel stories, apps and activities!
Although this program had a low attendance, I wrangled some older kids who were hanging out in the children’s room this evening with the promise of cookies and Mo Willems, and they LOVED this fun classic.
Book: Estamos en un libro!/We are in a book! by Mo Willems.
As I do, I read first in English, then in Spanish. One older girl translated to English as I read the Spanish version, and I was impressed with her combined Spanish/remembering skills.
Activity: Saltar por J (Jump for J)
Book + Activity: Fiesta by Ginger Fogleson Guy.
I handed out felt pieces ahead of time for each different item in the book, and as we read the page, whichever kid had the item came up and put it on the board.
