baby & me: things that go

Today’s baby theme was things that go: CARS and TRAINS!

Books Read:
Maisy’s Train- Lucy Cousins (used my awesome train whistle for the “toot toot” in this story)
Red Light Green Light – Anastasia Suen (sing the words to the tune of "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star")

Flannel Board:

Here Comes the Choo Choo Train by Judy Sierra
Here comes the choo choo train
Chugging down the track
First comes the engine
The freight cars are in back
Now the bells are ringing
Now the whistle blows
What a lot of noise it makes
Everywhere it goes!

Then ask “what is missing from the train? The caboose!”

Other highlights included the Itsy Bitsy Spider (with spider finger puppet), Row Row Row Your Boat & You Are My Sunshine. Despite a crowded room and a more active group than usual, the babies loved both books and the flannel board. Afterward, one adult told me she was a preschool teacher and my program was wonderful so that was nice!
