Robin Rockman did a Moose themed Storytime for her Preschool groups this week. She says, “This went well with my first group, but it was a HUGE hit with my second group. Before we started, I wore my moose ears and the kids loved it and thought it was so funny!” She put up the letters MOOSE on the flannel board to make the connection.

The books she read include: Moose Tracks by Karma Wilson, Looking for a Moose by Phyllis Root, and Duck, Duck, Moose by Sudipta Bardhan-Quallen. She added “With Duck, Duck, Moose, I really emphasized the MOOSE with a loud MOOOOOOOOSE.”

The craft included the moose ears as you see her pictured in. Robin said, “The parents primarily had to make it, but the kids had a lot of fun with them after. They would go “MOOOOOSE!” to each other and ask their mom’s to take a picture. They looked so cute and really enjoyed their moose ears!”

 Other songs and flannel activities all related to moose, were included but the highlight was definitely the ears.
