Back in May I asked how you all felt about storytime breaks. It was the first time I’d been glad to go on break and wondered if I was alone in ever hating breaks. Turns out, everyone who commented liked their breaks. Now, after 4 months of storytimes, I’m SO glad for the break. I’m so firmly planted on the YES TO STORYTIME BREAK side I can scarcely believe it. This break is going to rejuvenate me which will make me a better storytime provider for my patrons.
Since I don’t have any storytime outlines to blog, I thought I’d share what I plan to accomplish over the three week break (besides eating and laughing way too much with family and friends).
To Do List:
-new rhymes and songs for storytimes (and change up the iPod playlist)
-write some outlines for storytimes
-create new rhyme sheets
-come up with at least 10 activities for after toddler storytime
-put books on hold to review for possible use in storytime
-schedule some blogs
-work on Public Awareness Committee stuff
-write a proposal for a music collection, either through OverDrive, or physical
-clean off my desk/organize cabinets
-clean baby and toddler toys
-catch up on some collection maintenance
Hope I can get it all done! Have a feeling 3 weeks is going to fly by!! What do your break to do lists look like?
Help me out by telling me about your favorite rhymes, songs, flannels, fingerplays, and books for babies and toddlers!
