Dance, Rattle & Roll — (Winter 2019 Session 2)

How cute is this presentation? I found it in Canva of course. 85 people today. We had a blast! A couple notes: That Raffi song was way too short for instruments. By the time the kids got their instruments, and sat back down, and I started the song, it was barely worth it. It was…… Continue reading Dance, Rattle & Roll — (Winter 2019 Session 2)

Dance, Rattle & Roll — (Winter 2019 Session 1)

Our first dance story time of the year! We had 79 wonderful people and had a blast! I usually put the slideshow of my slides here but WordPress has changed to some sort of awful block format and I HATE it. It used to be nice and user friendly and now it’s super complicated and…… Continue reading Dance, Rattle & Roll — (Winter 2019 Session 1)

Dance, Rattle & Roll Story Time (Fall Session 2)

44 people!!!! AND the other children’s librarian sat in on this session since she’s going to cover my story time when I’m at a library conference in two weeks. That extra set of hands was really nice to have. One of the parents commented that this was the first time she was able to hear…… Continue reading Dance, Rattle & Roll Story Time (Fall Session 2)

Dance, Rattle & Roll Story Time (Fall Session 1)

I had huge crowds this summer but I figured when school began and fall activities started up that my numbers would be more manageable. They were not more manageable. I had 94 people at this session! I think that’s more than I had at any summer session. If/When we do another six-week session, we’re going…… Continue reading Dance, Rattle & Roll Story Time (Fall Session 1)

Dance, Rattle & Roll Story Time (Session 6)

I had 43 people at this session! I was right about it being much calmer than other sessions since we’re deep into family vacation time. It went really well. I didn’t have to skip any songs and I planned everything perfectly. Of course, I forgot to update my PowerPoint presentation with our new song selections…… Continue reading Dance, Rattle & Roll Story Time (Session 6)

Dance, Rattle & Roll Story Time (Session 5)

I had 62 people at this session. The least amount I’ve ever had but finally a more manageable number! I’m expecting even less at this week’s session. The first three weeks of August are a ghost town in our area. Everyone is on vacation. So this Wednesday might even be calm! (Haha!) Book: Duck Sock…… Continue reading Dance, Rattle & Roll Story Time (Session 5)

Dance, Rattle & Roll Story Time (Session 4)

I had 95 people at this session. I hate to say this … but it was too many! The kids were a little unruly and hard to control with that many bodies. I also had some older siblings that were leading the pack which wasn’t helpful. But we pressed on! Book: Goldi Rocks and the…… Continue reading Dance, Rattle & Roll Story Time (Session 4)
