What's In A Name?

January 23, 2013

Today's Story Time theme was NAMES!  We read...

From Anne to Zach by Mary Jane Martin
What's in a name? The letters of the alphabet, presented here with colorful illustrations.

Princess Baby by Karen Katz
A little girl does not like any of the nicknames her parents have for her-- she wants to be called by her "real" name, Princess Baby.

My Name is Not Isabella by Jennifer Fosberry
From breakfast to bedtime, a young girl imagines being different women who made history, and ends the day empowered to be herself.

Name Songs/Fingerplays:

Two Little Blackbirds

Two little blackbirds, sitting on a hill
One named Jack, one named Jill
Fly away Jack, fly away Jill
Come back Jack, come back Jill

Two little blackbirds, sitting on a cloud
One named Quiet, one named Loud
Fly away Quiet, fly away Loud
Come back Quiet, come back Loud

Two little blackbirds, sitting in the snow
One named Fast, one named Slow
Fly away Fast, fly away Slow
Come back Fast, come back Slow


There was a farmer, had a dog
And Bingo was his name-o
And Bingo was his name-o

We made Name Trains during Craft Time! 
We have some very creative kiddos who added
train tracks, cargo and background scenery!
