Preschool Storytime: PARTY!

This year my department has decided to take May off so we can focus all our attention on school visits and summer learning prep before the chaos starts. We’ll have quite a few kids graduating out of our preschool storytime this years, so it seemed only natural to celebrate!

I decorated the room with streamers and balloons that we already had and got out our awesome new bubble fish. What’s a party without a bubble machine?


We read…

Where’s the Party? by Ruth Chan
Secret Pizza Party by Adam Rubin
If You Give a Pig a Party by Laura Numeroff

We sang…

Hello/Goodbye, Friends
If You’re Happy and You Know It
There Are Bubbles In the Air
Shake Your Sillies Out

We wiggled…

Open, Shut Them
Dance Your Fingers Up
This is Big, Big, Big

We played…


What’s a party without presents? We played Little Fox, of course.

We made…


Everyone knows all the best parties end with cake! I pre-cut the bottom and top shapes and put them in piles on the tables. I didn’t make a sample (only for you guys!) and let them glue and decorate however it felt right to them. We had a lot of fun coming up with crazy flavor combinations.

Our literacy tip…

Asking questions as you read will strengthen your child’s reading comprehension.
