Park Outreach Storytime - Turtles

Turtle Fun

Stand Up Sit Down Song by Rick Goldin
Everybody stand up
Everybody sit down
now stand up again, and turn around
you can keep standing up, but not for long
cause this is the stand up, sit down, 

stand up, sit down song

stand up if you're ___ years old
and sit back down again

stand up if you're ___ years old

and sit back down with your friends
(repeat until I get everyone)

Flannel Friday Roundup for 6/23/17


Goat Yoga may not catch on but the Goat Props from Wendy at Flannel Board Fun are just classic. 
This felt board is Totes My Goats!

Do you need a felt board and rhyme for a tiger or zoo theme? Look no further than Amy at One Little Librarian and her flannel friday: tigers in the jungle creation.  For your viewing pleasure, not one or two but five tiger kittehs. 

Let's have some birthday fun with Kate at Felt Board Magic who brings us  Four Birthday Presents Felt Board Set and Today I have a Birthday Felt Board Set.

Here are two felt boards from my blog, One for the Books.  You can find my Lego Counting board and my Trash Trucks board at Preschool Storytime - Lego/Construction.

Join us in two weeks for the July 7 Round Up at Felt Board Fun.

Can’t wait for a great idea? Check out the Flannel Friday Blog, Facebook, and Pinterest pages!

School Library Journal Teen Librarian Tool Box Article

As part of the #SJYALit Discussion I've written a post for the School Library Journal's website, Teen Librarian Toolbox, introducing myself as Asexual and what that means.  
Just yesterday I was informed that being Asexual makes me a non-entity, with no place in the LGBTIA+ spectrum. I encourage you to read more about #SJYALit (2017)
The Social Justice in YA Lit Project/Discussion, using YA literature to discuss a variety of social justice issues including own voices, representation, discrimination, education, poverty and more.

Quick Pic - Block Head

I really have no explanation for this. The best I can do is saying that Lego Club is this week and I had just come back to work from outreach storytime. So basically I was in a very silly mood.
