Let’s Feature Your Live Recording and Name on One of Our Read Alouds

Happy sunny Sunday! I’m excited to get Erin in the studio and re-record a few books. Do you have 10 minutes of video recorded in your flower patch, where you can see bugs crawling and flying around? If so, we’d love to feature it as the background for one of our read alouds. How about for “The Grouchy Ladybug?” You name and the location that you recorded the live feed will be added to the description. Have a great day! – Amber with Story Time with Amber and Erin : D

The Little OLD Lady is Back! She’s Swallowing More Stuff!

The little OLD lady is back and she’s swallowing more stuff! You’d think that she is ready for spring! She’s swallowing a frog, dirt, seeds, rain, sunlight, a rake and gloves. What does it mean? Check our our read aloud, “There was an OLD Lady Who Swallowed a Frog” by Lucille Colandro and illustrated by Jared Lee. Story Time with Amber and Erin sites are kid, tween and teen friendly. The backdrop. We love visiting The Museum of Curiosity at Thanksgiving Point. During a recent visit Amber took several panoramic shots of different locations throughout the museum. Can you tell where we were exploring? 😉  We are two sisters on a mission to make a difference by spreading fun and engaging literacy experiences across the globe. – Amber and Erin 😀

Let’s Paint a Rainbow

Red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple. These are the colors of the rainbow. We use colors to describe most everything in our world. Are you searching for the pot of gold under the rainbow? St. Patty’s Day is a few days away. Have a great day! We are two sisters on a mission to make a difference by spreading fun and engaging literacy experiences across the globe. – Erin and Amber

Who Stole the Gold From the Leprechaun? Community Circle – Irish Folktale

Have your students sit in a circle and show them the talking stick. The talking stick can be any object safe to pass around the circle that does not make any noise. When anybody is holding the talking stick, it indicates that it is their turn to talk and everybody else’s turn to listen. Every Community Circle can have a different focus and it can be short or long, depending on what experience you want your students to have on any given day.

Community Circle Idea: Focus on the theme of Irish Folklore and pose the following question for your students to answer during Community Circle. It is an effective way to create a sense of community among your students by taking the time to start the day, in a circle formation, where everybody’s presence is acknowledged and welcomed. Extend the lesson and listen to the read aloud “Too Many Leprechauns.”
