Storytime Plan: And away we go! (Transportation)

March 23, 2015 by Andrea

This was actually an outreach plan, but I like it so much it will be my opening theme for the spring session. I also did not do half the stuff listed, ha. We never got to Who is Driving or Beep Beep…but it was because the kids were having too much fun with Don’t Squish and Transportation Yoga. I had the kids pull a card from my deck and we demo-ed each pose and then during The Pigeon Loves we redid some of the poses.
