Hats and Hair Storytime

8 Aug

I mentioned in my last Flannel Friday post (over a month ago…eeek!) that I was creating this storytime after reading Super Hair-o and the Barber of Doom. It went over pretty well with the preschoolers, so it’s time to share.

I have a bunch of assorted hats sitting in a drawer in my office (as you do) so I brought some of them along and put on a different one for each story. And there were some GREAT stories!:

  • Rocco, Jon. Super Hair-o and the Barber of Doom. Jon thinks his wild, curly super hair-ohair is the source of his super powers. But when the barber cuts it all off, what will he do to regain his powers?
  • Klassen, Jon. I Want My Hat Back. Bear goes looking for his hat. Nobody has seen it. Or HAVE they?
  • Game: “Who Wears This Hat?”: I printed out some pictures of various hats (cowboy, hard hat, astronaut helmet, firefighter hat, etc.) and covered with clear contact paper. I held them up and the kids helped me figure out who wears each hat, and what job they do.
  • Agee, Jon. Milo’s Hat Trick. Milo the magician HAS to improve his show with a hat trick. He goes looking for a rabbit, but instead finds a bear with an impressive skill.
  • Flannelboard: “My Hat It Has Three Corners
  • Lita Judge. The Red Hat. Sort of a wordless picture book – the only words are sounds (but OH WHAT AWESOME SOUNDS!). A bear cub pulls a child’s red hat off a clothesline and begins a game of chase with his animal friends, resulting in the hat unraveling.

Other books I like:

I tip my cap to you, storytimers. What are your favorite hat/hair books?

    What about “Falling For Rapunzel” by Leah Wilcox? It’s a pretty sure bet for making kiddos giggle. Plus, lots of interesting words for ‘hair.” Hooray for rich vocabulary!
