The letter of the week is "J" at Storytime in the Snake River School Community Library.
Children ages 3-5 followed storyteller Peggy Hansen as she encouraged them to repeat, "Where is J? Here I am. What do you say J? J-j-j.
The color was blue and the nursery rhyme is "Jack and Jill went up the hill, to fetch a pail of water. Jack fell down and broke his crown and Jill came tumbling after."
"We study a color and letter each week," Hansen said. "There's is a nursery rhyme each week.
"This helps early literature skills.
"Nursery rhymes teach rhyme and rhythm," said Hansen.
A book is read, wriggles are wriggled out and each child does a hands-on activity.
Hansen teaches Storytime at the Snake River School Community Library at 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. each Tuesday and Wednesday.
At 10 a.m. each Thursday, Mindy Baldwin is the teacher. She also teaches the same lesson each week at 9:30 a.m. on Tuesday at the Blackfoot Community Center and then again at 10:30 a.m. at Keann Peck's daycare.
On Thursday, Baldwin teaches Storytime at 10 a.m. at the Snake River Library.
