Preschool Storytime: The First Day of Winter

Hi friends! Welcome back to Storytime with Miss Theresa. We are so happy to have you here! Today we are reading a fun book about winter, The First Day of Winter written and illustrated by Denise Fleming.

Parent Tip

The repetition of words in a story allows young readers to participate and/or chant along with you, connecting them to the events in the story. This is important because it allows kids to practice prediction skills before they are able to read on their own. It also helps to strengthen their memory skills.

Let’s get our bodies moving as we watch and sing along with Snowflakes by The learning Station.

I have worked with preschool children for more than 30 years, both as a teacher and as an Outreach Storyteller. I like to cook, tend to my vegetable garden, and make jam and pickles in my spare time. I love cats! If you want a great picture book, I'm happy to help you out.
