Bedtime Stories

This was my second month doing our Bedtime Stories, a.k.a. Pajama Time.  I continued to be concerned with finding the right timing, is 6:45 pm to late for the young ones or to early if parents are trying to finish up dinner and get them on their PJ's?  It was a great evening, all our kids showed up on their PJ's and ready to listen, do a little dancing, a couple of fingerplays, and relax while listening to lullabies looking up at the stars in our ceiling.  We started the night with "The More We Get Together" and a round of Wiggles. I read 


Our second book No Nap! Yes Nap! was a hoot with one little boy repeating the refrain "No Nap, No Nap" over and over.  We did a few rounds of  Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star and used flannel stars as we chanted Four Little Stars. 

Our library has a subscription to TumbleBooks and we viewed


 with dimmed lights in preparation for our little octopus machine to illuminate our ceiling as we listened to lullabies.

It was a very special way to say "Goodnight"
