Denise Fleming Storytime

For our fall pre-school storytime session I have decided to focus on a different author or illustrator each week instead of theme. This has been very fun and different and I’m really enjoying it so far! I have a backlog of authors to blog about from the past couple of weeks :)

Our first author was Denise Fleming!

K-I-T-T-Y
source

I know a cat with perky ears,
And Kitty is her name-o.
K-I-T-T-Y, K-I-T-T-Y, K-I-T-T-Y,
And Kitty is her name-o.
She makes a sound and it’s “meow,”
And Kitty is her name-o.
K-I-T-T-Y, K-I-T-T-Y, K-I-T-T-Y,
And Kitty is her name-o.

Craft

I got this craft from Simply Speech– and it comes with a free printable! This is a great one to encourage some language and to discuss the book :)

As for prep, I wrote the words and then drew the lines for the kid to cut.  I also cut out the squares of the pictures.  Beyond that it was all scissor and glue skills while the kids made their projects!
