baby & me: counting fun

Mystery Box: Inside our yellow box, we found some shaky eggs: 1 ,2, 3 eggs

Books We Read: 
1 2 3 Counting Fun- Tiger Tales (So bright & colorful)
Big Fat Hen- Baker (this was a last minute change. loved how everyone joined in until the last few pages with a cute but unexpected ending.)

Flannel Story: Ten Little Babies

We sang:
1 little, 2 little, 3 little babies
4 little, 5 little, 6 little babies
7 little, 8 little, 9 little babies
10 little babies go clap clap clap

Then we counted down as I removed the babies:
9 little, 8 little, 7 little babies
6 little, 5 little, 4 little babies
3 little, 2 little, 1 little babies
No little babies go clap clap clap

Puppet Rhyme: 
“Here Is a Beehive” with my Bumble Bee puppet glove. The counting part at the end is perfect for my number theme today!

Here is a beehive
But where are all the bees?
Hidden away where nobody sees!
Watch them come creeping out of their hive:
1 2 3 4 5!

WONDERFUL class today! Seriously, it was like a dream, with everyone singing along and NO CHATTING!! We had a ton of babies too. Tried out a new scarf rhyme for my program called "This is the Way We Wash Our Hands" (from Jbrary of course) and everyone loved it!! Loved my counting/number theme too! So many compliments from the mothers today. I think people are really enjoying this program.
