baby & me: spring


Our baby theme for today's program was SPRING!

Mystery Box:
Inside the yellow box was a pretty pink flower!

Books:
Go Baby Go - Marilyn Janovitz
Baby Loves Spring– Karen Katz

UNFlannel Story: The Green Grass



Behind the green grass
You just never know
What you might see
Or what might grow
(credit: adapted from Read Sarah Read)



First is the bunny
Looking for a carrot!
Then comes a bumblebee
searching for a flower.

The bird says Tweet!
The snake says Hiss!
The froggie goes Ribbit!

A ladybug flies
A caterpillar crawls
And we even found
An old baseball!



You could also use the grass prop for a guessing game with toddlers and preschoolers:

There is someone in my garden
Someone I cannot see
There’s someone in my garden
Whoever can it be?

Puppet: Caterpillar/Butterfly puppet (Folkmanis)



Flutter flutter butterfly
Floating in the deep blue sky
Floating by for all to see
Floating by so merrily
Flutter flutter butterfly
Floating in the deep blue sky
