11 siblings (babies and school age)
Animal puppet song: Old MacDonald
Letter of the Day: Pp for penguin from our book
Book: Mommy, Carry Me Please. Various baby animals ask their mothers to carry them.
Activity: We handed out finger puppets I bought from IKEA (I really like these because they fit little fingers nicely) and played "Carry me please" and carried the puppets on various body parts like in the book.
Music: The finger puppets danced to "Elephants Have Wrinkles"
I bought this adorable, good quality Melissa & Doug sandwich set from Barnes & Noble over the weekend and just had to use it today. To make it a literacy activity, I typed up Mouse's sandwich order and pointed to each word and read it out loud as Cassie assembled the sandwich.
