  1. Hi!

    I love your blog! I use ideas from it all the time. Would it be possible to publish the format of your story times (ie the order you present things)?


    • Thanks, Annie! I’m glad that you like the blog:) I have actually been thinking about formats a lot lately. I want to write a whole page about how I go about my formatting sometime within the next few weeks. The reason why I haven’t been posting my exact formats is that I originally started this blog as a tool for parents to remind them about what we did at storytime. Because I do four toddler storytimes a week, I often switch things around or try different things throughout the week. So, I wanted to list what we “might” have done at the storytime. However, I do keep records of which order I think worked the best. I will email you my document from my “families” storytime to give you an example.

      That all being said, I realize that my blog is now being read by many librarians and teachers (probably more than the parents), so I am really considering changing how I post my storytimes. I’ll most likely switch over to posting the order. (I have done this for some of my preschool and family storytimes that I have posted on this site.)

      Thanks for the comment and for getting me thinking! Happy storytime-ing! 🙂
