Happy New Year!

I'm a sucker for the promise of fresh starts.  How about you?  It motivates me!  Wishing you all the best in the new year!  My daughter just made these Pinterest inspired cookies. Edible confetti comes out of some of the triple stacked ones. Cute!

Storytime with Miss Yumi

Has your class enjoyed storytime with Miss Yumi yet?


I discovered her site in August and I love it! She's a preschool teacher who does a great job reading and uploading clear pics of the books.  The video is set to soft music playing in the background which is soothing, never distracting.   Well worth a look!  Here are some of the books we've been enjoying from her YouTube Channel.

                     






Honestly, I prefer to read most books to my class myself.  But after reading some of the above books aloud dozens and dozens of times, I'm more than happy to have Miss Yumi step in.  (Especially for the two Crayon books.  Reading some of the font choices in these books have been difficult on my eyes.

                     

I'm so glad I discovered her channel right as she started it a few months ago.  My kids are too! There are already 33 posted books.  She adds new books all the time and takes requests.  Enjoy!
