The interactive story telling session was enjoyed by all staff, children and other visiting parents.
Lizzie talked to the children about the front cover and the pictures inside the book. The children very quickly were able to share what they thought the story would be about. Ash said the story was about a little button that went on a big adventure.
The story is filled with word patterns and the children really enjoyed joining in and repeating the pattern.
“I went twirling and whirling up and down and round before I was found…”
The children recalled some of the story and Lewis remembered the kite and the girl with the daffodil coat. The children enjoyed the discussion about their favourite parts in the book; most children chose the mermaid. To finish off Lizzie demonstrated a dance to go with the repeated pattern of words in the story. The children copied the dance while listening to the story.
The children then chose a yellow button to add to the picture of their favourite part that they got to decorate.
