Since I couldn't do all my favorite chick/egg stuff in one week, it carried over into this week's Wiggle Worms.
Animal Puppet Song: "If Animals Could Dance" (sorry not in our collection).
If animals could dance they'd look so funny
A cat would dance and look like this
And sound like this
(cow, dog, duck, elephant)
Letter of the Day: Ll for lion
Book: Charlie Chick by Nick Denchfield
We danced with a big lion puppet and scarves to Laurie Berkner's The Lion Sleeps Tonight.
We tried out "The Chicken Dance" again this week with much greater success!!
Flannel: Six Little Chicks
This is a flannel I came up with a few months ago and have used it a couple of different ways. Today we looked for Charlie Chick (a yellow chick).
Six little eggs getting ready to hatch (6 fingers)
Peck, peck, peck..... (peck hand)
Crack!! (Clap while removing the top part of the egg)
Finger Play: Two Little Blackbirds
Katie Crow (a blackbird) squawked until we did her favorite rhyme. Here she is hanging out with one of our lovely staff members.
