This Guest Post features Ann and her props for this fun mouse book by Ellen Stoll Walsh:
|I adore Ms. Walsh's mice books|
so I was very excited to see what Ann sent me!
Ann teaches preschool and loves to use props to share a book with her classroom friends. Here are the props that she chose to use with this book:
Ann says she found the stuffed mice at Walmart in the pet department. She also purchased the container and lid at Walmart and the snake at the Dollar Store. The rock was not purchased. It is just a mouse-shaped rock that she found.
The props can be used for telling the story at storytime or at circle time. They can also be used by the children for re-telling purposes.
Ann also included a few other items to use with the book:
What a FUN swap for me! I was very excited and happy to see what was in my box. It is so thrilling to get a surprise in the mail that I can share with my storytime friends in the New Year!
I hope you enjoyed seeing what Ann sent! Oh, but wait!
Ann also sent:

Here are a few pictures from Ann that explain how to use the mouse and cheese. It looks like lots of hands-on learning is happening here!
Thanks for taking a minute to check out my special Storytime Swap surprise.
And a very special thanks to Ann!
My storytime friends are going to fall in love with the book, Mouse Count, thanks to you!
And, as always,
HAPPY READING TOGETHER!
