This Charlotte’s Web Storytime and CTC Play are past; but the coloring pages and Scholastic game are still available.Charlotte’s Web Storytime with Children’s Theatre Company Red Balloon Bookshop, 891 Grand Ave., St. Paul, MN. 55105 Sat, Aug 24, 10:30 am
Tomorrow, The Red Balloon Bookshop and the Children’s Theatre will pair up to present a Charlotte’s Web Storytime. I’m really excited about this. We read Charlotte’s Web last year. By the end, I was the only one still interested. I would like to try again this year, but with a multi-media blitz. So here is my plan for making this a really fun book to read together.
- Go to the Charlotte’s Web Storytime at the Red Balloon tomorrow. Who better to get us excited about a book than the Red Balloon staff and the Children’s Theatre actors.
- Play some online games from Scholastic. For the preschoolers, there is a game that involves clicking on the farm animals and hearing the noises they make. My favorite activity is the Make a Comic Strip game. Here’s my attempt. You can see how much fun this could be.
- I’ve found a bunch of coloring pages and worksheets online. Sometimes having something to color while they listen to the story helps them concentrate on it. Homeschooling writer Autumn Jones has done a great job of gathering the various coloring pages and worksheets together at He Fills My Cup.
- Finally, we have to hit the State Fair and see the big pig.
Hopefully all of these things together will make it a really fun read. If it does, and they love it. We can consider getting tickets to see the play at the Children’s Theatre. I didn’t add watching one of the two movies together, but that will probably happen, too.
