Our theme for Storytime this week was whales. We heard a nonfiction book with facts about whales, read to us by a knowledgeable third grade patron. We also read The Snail and The Whale by Julia Donaldson, a rhyming story about an adventurous snail. Our last book was an Elephant & Piggie one by Mo Willems called A Big Guy Took My Ball. Can you guess who the Big Guy was?
After we watched part of a video that showed a whale breaching in the ocean, we made a take-home whale with a paper plate base. Some of us chose to collage a whale, others chose a folded option. Both whale versions had blowholes represented, since we know that whales are mammals and they need them to breathe!
