Among other topics shared at storytime today was the great work that worms do to make dirt.
We read the book Compost Stew by Mary McKenna Siddals
We also shared this flannel rhyme :
On a bright and sunny day,
A banana peel is what one found
And he brought it home into the ground.
Four little worms ...
a cracked eggshell
Three little worms ...
some rotten leaves
Two little worms ...
a old newspaper
One little worm ...
a used tea bag
Those five little worms dug deep in the ground,
They wiggled their bodies around and around,
They ate those kitchen scraps, munch! munch! munch!
And made some DIRT from their garbage lunch!
We also read Round As A Ball by Ernst, 10 Things I Can Do to Help My World by Walsh and A Leaf Can Be ... by Salas.
I shared the book What's This? by Mockford in book prop format :
We ended storytime with a rousing version of "We've got the whole world in our hands".
