I fell a bit behind in my blogging, so I’m publishing a few posts all at once. I presented this storytime on May 17, 2016.
SONG: Now it’s Time to Say Hello*

Five sailboats went out one day
Over the waves and far away
With the wind they began to rock
One sailboat returned to the dog.
Continue counting down until no sailboats are left.

THOUGHTS ON THIS STORYTIME:
I just made the sailboat flannelboard I used yesterday, and once I took a photo of it, I realized that I need to re-apply the puffy paint so that you can read boats 3 and 5.
