“The Rabbit Listened” Story Explorers preschool book club

For our final book of this session of Story Explorers, we read The Rabbit Listened by Cori Doerrfeld.

We learned about emotions by rolling the dice like this post from Sweeter than Sweets.

We played with blocks.

We made our own Book of Thumbprint Emotions like this post from St. Louis Center for Play Therapy Training.

“Lemonade in Winter” Story Explorers preschool book club

We read Lemonade in Winter by Emily Jenkins and G. Brian Karas.

We explored money like this post from PreKinders. Nobody really wanted to sort the money, but they LOVED looking at it through magnifying glasses and our microscope. We also had crayons and paper for money rubbing art.

 

We also made lemonade in a bag like this post from Education.com. They LOVED this activity!

“The Man with the Violin” Story Explorers preschool book club

 

We read The Man with the Violin by Kathy Stinson.

We had a special guest play the violin for us: Riley Ann!

 

Check out the video here!

 

I couldn’t find any easy violin crafts, so we made another string instrument: banjos! We used this design from The Craft Train. I hot glued the rubber bands and lids onto paint stirrers before the program.
