Storytime Share: Mice

14 01 2016

For my outreach theme this month I randomly chose “Mice.” I based my decision completely on the fact that I wanted to do the “Little Mouse” flannel with my outreach groups. As I had predicted the flannel was a hit, and the rest of the storytime went well, too. I used most of the same fingerplays and songs with all age groups, though the books varied slightly. Age levels for the particular books are listed in the descriptions.
