baby & me: sounds


Our baby theme today was SOUNDS.

Mystery Box:
Inside the yellow box, there was a cute little stuffed version of Spot the puppy!  What does a doggie say? Woof Woof!

Today We Read:
The Baby Goes Beep- O’Connell (LOVE this book, always a hit!)
Whose Ears- Rowe

Almost Read:
Quiet Loud- Patricelli (just not enough time)

Flannel Story: Let’s Make a Noise! From an amazing blog called Storytime Secrets. I love how interactive this rhyme is!

Puppet Rhyme:
I made two bird puppets using black foam sheets for the rhyme Two Little Blackbirds. Since our theme was today was sound, we did Quiet and Loud:

Two little blackbirds sitting on a cloud
One named Quiet, One named Loud
Fky away Quiet, flyaway Loud
Come back Quiet, come back Loud

Then, I adapted my peekaboo song for birds and hid one behind a felt tree I made.

Peekaboo Bird
(tune: Skip to My Lou)
Where is the bird? Peeka-BOO!
Where is the bird? Peeka-BOO! 
Where is the bird? Peeka-BOO!
Peeka-BOO to birdy!

We also tried this new bouncing rhyme this week and everyone really loved it:

We’re Going Down a Smooth Road
We’re going down a smooth road, a smooth road, a smooth road.(sway)
We’re going down a smooth road, a smooth road now.
We’re going down a bumpy road, a bumpy road, a bumpy road.(gentle bounce)
We’re going down a bumpy road, a bumpy road now.
We’re going down a rough road, a rough road, a rough road. (fast bounce)
We’re going down a rough road, UH OH! POTHOLE!
We had an awesome group today, with 20 babies and 22 adults.
