Story Time Plan: Hey, hey, We’re the Monkeys!


October 1, 2014 by Andrea

This was one of the best story time’s ever!! Whether it was Count the Monkeys (screaming out loud funny and added to my Favorite Books page), the fast paced active songs (I was literally sweating) or the awesome mix of kids (somehow, after one girl told me they had that book but they lost it, another child said “well I have floss. I’m four, so I floss”, to which a third child replied “i have flowers”) amazing kids, super fun story time. I didn’t even do the Monkey See rhyme. We did book-song-book-song-book-song. I had a blast and am now tired.
