A blue one and a pink/purple one!
I found this cute couple on Etsy! It is a printable pattern that I laminated and assembled. (I wanted to purchase a toy robot but it was difficult to find anything inexpensive that was large enough for the kids to see from the back of the room so I went with this and it did the job!)
I’m a little robot smart and strong
Here are my buttons, just turn me on
Press the red button and I will say
Hello to all my friends today
Can you say hi to the robots?
The arms on the robot go up and down, up and down, up and down
The arms on the robot go up and down
All day long
Feet/clickety clack clack
Lights/ on and off (with a flashlight!!)
Books We Read:
I Love My Robot- Church (great intro to robots for this age group)
Big Bot, Small Bot: A Book of Robot Opposites- Rosenthal (fun!)
If You’re a Robot & You Know It- Carter (MAGICAL!! everyone LOVED it so much!!)
Flannel Board: Hide and Seek Robot Game (so cute from from Read, Rhyme and Sing)
First we counted the colorful dots on the felt board. Then I told everyone that my friend Robot was hiding under one of the dots and we needed to find him. We said: Robot, Robot! are you under the COLOR dot?
This really held their attention!
Craft: Stand Up Robots
I found these cute color and fold robots here. I just printed on white cardstock and pre-cut them (with a little extra space at the bottom to make it easier to fold and tape but they stood up ok on their own as well.) I gave every child a sparkly star sticker to put on their robot. Very fun!
Lots of compliments today!! Two large groups for both sessions. I am always nervous that kids won't like this theme but the Carter book was like storytime magic! I just love when the parents laugh at one of my books. this felt board was much better than the 4 Little Robots one that I used a couple of years ago. I wanted to do the Lots of Dots book because it went great with my flannel board but there was just no time! GREAT day!
