Fairies and Giants and Bears, Oh My!

This month’s surprise guest for Storytime with Mr. Steve & Friends was Lisa WilliamsReading Together coordinator at the Kalamazoo Public Library. She shared her piano playing talents, leading us in story songs that my mom used to play when I was a child. 

The kids danced like fairies in a forest, stomped around like giants, and looked for cozy places to hibernate, pretending they were bears just like I used to do in my living room along with my brothers and sisters.

Ms. Lisa also proved adept at balancing bean bags on her head, but fell one short of tying Ms. Waneta’s record of 12 set last month. 

In addition to the dancing, I read

We sang songs and once again broke out the giant parachute. This time we pretended that we were looking for a bear as we circled with the parachute, crossing a river on stepping stones and hiking around mountains. Finally, imagining the parachute was a cave, all the kids scampered like bears under the chute.

       

For our craft time, everyone got to decorate a set of fairy wings to take home for more imaginative play until we meet again on Tuesday, March 24 at 6:30 pm at the Central Library.
