I love giving my storytime attendees chances to talk and use their words in my storytimes. One way I do this is by having the children guess what the theme of our storytime might be in our preschool storytimes. We talk about the pictures on the books I have displayed and what we might be reading about that day. The kids love this part of storytime, and most of my regulars start guessing what the theme is before storytime even begins. This is a great time to throw out an early literacy tip to parents.
