baby & me: winter time is here!

Mystery Box: Inside our mystery box, we found a SNOWFLAKE! 

Prop Song: Snowflake On My Shoulder (with snowflake puppet)
Tune: Have You Ever Seen a Lassie

There’s a snowflake on my shoulder, my shoulder, my shoulder
There’s a snowflake on my shoulder and it's melting away!

We also had snowflakes on our heads, elbows, and knees!

Books We Read: 
Snowflake Baby- Broach

Flannel Story: Hello Winter

(inspired by a holiday song I found on Youtube found HERE

Hello, Snowflake
Hello, Snowball
Hello, Snowman
Winter time is here!

Hello, Hat
Hello, Scarf
Hello, Mittens
Winter time is here!

Hello, Penguin
Hello, Polar Bear
Hello, Reindeer
Winter time is here!

Let’s count them all up!

One, two, three
Four, five, six
Seven, eight, nine, ten!
Happy winter everyone!

Puppet Song: Snowy Owl, Snowy Owl
(This is a twist I wrote of Brown Squirrel, Brown Squirrel, Shake Your Bushy Tail)

Snowy Owl, Snowy Owl, looking all around (move his head)
Snowy Owl, Snowy Owl, looking all around
You build your nest high in a tree (hold Owl up high)
I hear you say "Hoot Hoot" to me!
Snowy Owl, Snowy Owl, looking all around

Today’s class was not great. We had a bunch of noisy latecomers moving chairs around and a lot of chatting. It was so distracting and I could not hear myself so I knew the babies could not hear me. I asked nicely the first time for more participation. Then I had to stop the Hello Bubble song and ask again. By the time we got to scarves and shakey eggs, I was just tired of the rudeness. After the eggs, I skipped the scarves and brought out the toys. Kind of frustrating. Baby & Me class is not a playdate at your house. Will repeat the “rules” (which are "take your child out of the room if they get distracting and return when you are ready." & PARTICIPATE!) again next week AFTER the Hello Song and see if that helps.
