This fall, I took bilingual storytime on the road! In order to reach a new and bigger audience, I offered programs at a local church and at our private Catholic elementary school, both in the evening. Not knowing anything about numbers or ages of who my audience would be, I mostly used my normal bilingual storytime outline, with some additions to tweak it for different ages.

Red is rojo (adapted from Miss Meg)
Red is rojo
green is verde
white is blanco
El pollo, from my dear friend Mary.
Since these were special outreach programs, I wanted there to be a component for socializing and treats afterwards, so I added a craft. I brought a bunch of scissors and tissue paper, and we made papel picado!
