Books We Read:
So Big- Yaccarino (perfect for babies!)
Now I Am Big- Krensky
Big and Small- Teckentrup
Flannel Story: Here’s a Ball -- inspired by What Happens in Storytime
I thought this was a great felt board for my big/little theme today. I used clipart balls instead of felt ones to save time.
Here’s a ball and here’s a ball
A great big ball I see!
Can we count them? Are you ready? 1, 2, 3!
Puppet Rhyme: We sang the Itsy Bitsy Spider song for the finger puppet version. Then I brought out my hand puppet spider and we sang the Big Enormous Spider. I love when its a song that everyone knows so all the adults are singing along.
This was a fun theme! The Yaccarino book and the spider puppets were my favorites. We had a very nice group of about 22 little ones and some new babies today. One of the dads told me that they use my shaker egg song "We Shake Our Eggs Together" all the time at home and they even bought a set of shakey eggs of their own.
