The Doorbell RangToday, I’m going to be doing an audition for this volunteer storytime group I found through my local library. I had to prepare a mini storytime presentation complete with a book, a couple of little songs, an a flannel board story. The group gave me all the materials, I just have to present it. I’m not sure how large the group of kids will be today, but it should still be fun. For the audition today, I am reading The Doorbell Rang by Pat Hutchins and doing a flannel board story of the 5 Little Ghosts. I currently do weekly storytimes Friday mornings with another librarian where I work, so I have a feel for the pacing and enthusiasm. I’ve also been practicing in front of my pets. Its cute when they just sit and stare and me as I ramble on and on.
