baby & me: dog days

Mystery Box: Inside our yellow box, we found a puppy! What does a doggy say?

Books We Read: 
Doggy Kisses 1 2 3- Parr (LOVE these illustrations! Read up to #6 then I stopped before I lost their attention forever)
Where Is Baby’s Puppy- Katz (Nice one)
Do Your Ears Hang Low- Church (No time for this one today; two books is usually enough for this group and the third one is like a back up just in case we have time to fill.)

Flannel Story: 10 Little Doggies

I used the artwork from the Parr book to make doggies for this song:

One little, two little, three little doggies
Four little, five little, six little doggies
Seven little, eight little, nine little doggies
Ten little doggies say woof woof woof!

Then you can count back down as you remove the doggies from the board.

Nine little, eight little, seven little...

Puppet Song: All the Little Dogs

I used dog, cat & mouse puppets for this song:

(tune: Mary Had a Little Lamb)
All the little dogs say woof woof woof
Woof woof woof
Woof woof woof
All the little dogs say woof woof woof
Woof woof all day long.
(repeat for cat & mouse)

Wonderful class today, TONS of people but everyone seemed to love this theme so there was lots of singing & participation. Until right before the end of the class when it felt like all the parents started chatting all at once & no one felt like joining in on "Twinkle Twinkle" or "Goodbye Bubble." Right up to the last two songs, things were great tho so I'll focus on that! Maybe wrap up a little bit earlier next time.
