Wiggle Worms! 12/5 and 12/6

Today we:

Animal Song: "If Animals Could Dance"

Letter of the Day:  Ff for fish

Book:  Hooray for Fish! by Lucy Cousins is one of my favorite storytime books.  The illustrations are bold, colorful, and BIG.  This is a great book to check out and take home too since the pictures lend themselves well to lots of "what" questions for you and your toddler to discuss.

Movement: "The Goldfish" song by Laurie Berkner.  I usually do this with the Pre-schoolers, but the toddlers totally go the hang of this song!  Our little fish like to take naps, swim around, and do silly things like take showers.

Flannel:  We reviewed concepts like "big and small (or little)", "happy and sad", and "polka dots and stripes"

Finger Play:  We did a "new" finger play that was one of my favorites as a kid when I went to storytimes. 

The Little Turtle

There was a little turtle.
He lived in a box.
He swam in a puddle.
He climbed on the rocks.

He snapped at a mosquito.
He snapped at a flea.
He snapped at a minnow.
And he snapped at me.

He caught the mosquito.
He caught the flea.
He caught the minnow.
But he didn't catch me.
