Storytime Plans: England

In November, the country we visited during Passport Pals was England. We had a lot of fun learning about famous landmarks, as well as Kings and Queens, knights, and tea time! I wanted to do England in November so that I could have a special Thanksgiving themed storytime in Passport Pals during the week of Thanksgiving.

Here are the plans I used for the first week in November — an introduction to England.

Passport Pals: England

Welcome Song: Come on everybody and clap your hands, clap your hands, clap your hands, Come on everybody and clap your hands on the way to Passport Pals . . . stomp your feet, swing your arms, jump up high, spin around, sit right down . . . watch me spin the globe.

We are in a new country today for Passport Pals! Let’s see what clues we have in our bag as to where we might be!
