With assistant from the parents give each child a pre-folded green piece of construction paper.

Children’s librarian will also provide a laminated printable of the rhyme Five Little Monkeys for them to take home. Parents and children will be able to read the rhyme at home with their new hand puppet and practice their reading and math skills. As they finish their craft, they can leave and take the craft home with them. 

 

 


 

  

Caregiver Involvement and/or ECRR2 Family Education:

 

Early Literacy Aside: 

 

The early literacy skills children will acquire are oral language, phonological awareness, print conventions and awareness, letter knowledge, vocabulary, and background knowledge. The main focus will be on learning how to count through reading. Introducing numbers through reading is a great way to introduce counting and numbers for children. Counting books provide repetition and colorful illustrations to help engage readers. Picture books are a great way to introduce the concept of math for young children. 

 

Early Literacy Aside Example: After children are introduced to numbers, parents should use this opportunity to incorporate counting in everyday activities. Point out and count together with your child with things you see around your house or going to the store. Practice the counting song with your child at home and read other counting books. 

 

Early Literacy Aside Empower: Take advantage of the craft and counting rhyme provided to you at the end of this storytime. It is for you to use and help expand your child's knowledge. You are the example your child will follow. Make the experience a positive one and watch your child grow.
