This presentation will save you so much time! I designed it specifically for new elementary librarians, especially those who are on the Specials rotation and/or are simply busy parents who just do not have time to create detailed storytime lessons.

The slides walk you right through a storytime! You will need a TV, monitor, or screen in your story area. Move through the storytime song, sign language word of the day, and discussion of the parts of a book.

If your school needs to go digital this year, this lesson is all ready to go on Google™ Slides! All you need to provide is the story to read aloud.

Needed to open and edit: Google™ Slides OR PowerPoint; PDF reader
