Digital Storytimes will save you so much time! I design them 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.
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.
