Pizza! Pizza!

We celebrated National Pizza Month by reading about pizza and even made our own shape pizzas! “Pizza at Sally’s” by Monica Wellington is about a pizzeria owner who makes pizza using tomatoes, dough, cheese and vegetables for her all her hungry customers. Monica Wellington is a great informational author for toddlers; at the end of the book there is a recipe for readers to make their own yummy pizza! You can find that recipe by visiting- http://www.monicawellington.com/activities/pizza_recipe.html

What do you say when pizza is delivered to your home? In “Hi, Pizza Man!” by Virginia Walter, a young girl she wonders what to say when her pizza is delivered and who will deliver it-a pizza man, kitty, or dinosaur? We kept kids guessing as the animals and silliness of the story got bigger and bigger.

The Toddler Songs for October are “I Know a Chicken” by the Laurie Berkner Band, We Shake Our Eggs Together, and BINGO. The lyrics can be found in the ‘October Toddler Time Song’ post.

After reading all these stories about pizza Mr. T and I were hungry, so we made a felt pizza with the kids help. This month’s concept is shapes, so we explored the various shapes that can be found on a pizza (ex: circle-pepperoni, triangles-peppers, and squares-pineapple. Kids then got a chance to make their own shape pizzas with foam shapes, crayons and paper circles.

REMINDER: There will be no Toddler or Preschool Storytime next week, October 11 & 12. Instead we will be celebrating Fall Break with two special programs! On Tuesday Oct.11 from 10:30-11:30am we will have fun make and take crafts for ages 6 and under. On Wednesday Oct. 12 the Queen Creek Fire Department will be here for a special fire safety storytime. The event starts at 10:15am in the Zane Grey Room; tickets will be handed out at 10am.  We will resume Toddle Time October 18 & 19.
