Mystery Box: Inside our yellow box, we found a pinwheel!
This is so pretty and COMPLETELY unrelated to any of our books/rhymes/etc., but I’ve been dying to somehow sneak it into a program!
Books We Read:
Hello Day- Lobel
Are You a Cow- Boynton
Babies on the Bus – Katz
Flannel Story: Brown Bear, Brown Bear
I purchased this felt set on amazon over the summer. Based on one of my #1 Most Favorite books EVER, the babies seemed mesmerized by these colorful felt pieces. Another great but different way to use this amazing story. I just said the words to the story as I went thru the pieces, placing them on my little lap board one at a time.
I had these cat puppets handy so I decided to go with them for "Where Is Big/Little Cat?"
I have to admit it was kind of liberating to forget about choosing a baby theme for today and just use what appealed to me at that moment!!! It is definitely something I will try to do more often. The felt board was my favorite part of the session.
We had 7 babies today despite the frigid weather and it was a pleasant change of pace. Based on last year's stats, I expect the crowds to be small like this for the next few weeks and that's perfectly fine with me. Change is good! Its a great time for me to try out new songs and rhymes and switch things up a bit until the spring.
