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 or monitor in your story area. Move through the storytime song, sign language word of the day, and discussion of the many words for “friend.”

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
