Miss Jennifer's Bakery Storytime Template

Showed children a picture of a baker with his tasty treats including bread, cakes, cookies and more! I explained to the children that people who make us these sweet treats are called bakers and that where these items are made is called a bakery.

Action Rhyme
Cookie Jar and 10 Cookies

Recite the rhyme as you have the children give you a quarter for their cookies. I created a "quarter jar" for their money which they placed in the slot I slit into a plastic container lid.

Down around the corner at the bakery shop...there were 10 little cookies with frosting on top (I changed the rhyme to "waiting to be bought" since I had created gingerbread cookie paper cut-outs instead of "frosted" cookies). Along came ____________ (insert child's name) with a quarter to pay. He (she) bought himself (or herself) a cookie and he/she took it away.
