R is for Robot

We had a large group today since preschool was not in session. We had 29 robo-children and 10 robo- adults attend story hour today. Our theme this week was R is for Robot. On facebook, I had asked the question why was the robot mad and promised to give the answer at story hour. However, I forgot what the answer was! So here is the answer, the robot was mad because people wouldn't stop pushing its buttons. :) Our first story today was

Buddy's Bedtime Battery by Christina Geist This story is about a little boy who pretends to be a robot while he goes about getting ready for bed. After the story we sang "If You're a Robot" to the tune of "If You're Happy and you Know It." We clanked our coils, clunked our gears, and pressed our buttons. We sang through the song twice because the kids were having a great time with it. Our second story today was a robot draw and tell story. As a told a story about Carl and Cindy a drew a picture that went along with what they were doing. I had told the children to pay attention and see if they could guess what I was drawing. Well I had some smart children in this group that guessed it when I was only half way through! It was a robot of course. They seemed to enjoy the story and we went right into singing our next song called "Lights on the Robot" to the tune of "The Wheels on the Bus." Again we all had so much fun that we sang it twice. Our last story today was

Lots of Bots by David Carter This book is a pop up book about different kinds of bots. From dishwasher bots to acro-bots. Our craft today was turning the letter R into a robot. Next weeks theme is T is for Trains!
