Baby Bloomers- Siblings & Animals

This week's theme is a bit random, an old traditional tale, a realistic picture book about little kids & siblings, and a short Spanish book about nature.  I am truly not doing themes with the group but finding a good mix of books that work well.  I am also adding more play time by using our puppets and finger puppets.

Here is the plan

This Little Piggy
This little piggy went to market,
This little piggy stayed home,
This little piggy had roast beef,
This little piggy had none.
And this little piggy cried
“wee, wee, wee, wee”
All the way home.

Touch Your Nose
Touch your nose
Touch your chin,
That’s the way this game begins.
Touch your thighs,
Touch your knees,
Now pretend you’re going to sneeze.
Touch your hair,
Touch your ears,
Now touch your two lips right here.
Touch your elbows,
Where they bend,
That’s the way this touch game ends.

Little Cat
Creeping, creeping , creeping,
Comes the little cat.
Meow, meow, meow, meow
Just like that!
Creeping, creeping, creeping,
Comes the little bunny.
Hop, hop, hop, hop
Do you think that’s funny?
