Mother Goose Storytime

Since I’ll be at a Every Child Ready to Read Conference my boss will be doing an Emergency Storytime.  ES’s are storytimes in a bag with the books in them, the hand outs ready and crafts ready, in case I am sick or out of the office!  They come in really handy on days like these! And with a variety of storytimes to go the person performing storytime can choose whatever topic they are most comfortable with!

The purpose of this blog…

This blog is a way for me to post my storytimes onto the web for parents, teachers, or librarians to reuse or reinvent! I’ll try to post where I found most of the stuff, but sometimes I forget – if you want to know where something came from, feel free to contact me! Thanks!
