Snowmen! Pre-K 12-13-12

Today we read and sang about snowmen.  It's finally getting "cold" enough here in AZ that I can pull this winter-y stuff off.

26 kids
3 siblings
19 adults

Memory Box: Flamingo (from Pip & Squeak)

All You Need for a Snowman by Alice Schertle.  This book builds a snowman starting from the very first snowflake that falls.
I made this flannel to assemble while reading the books since I love the text, but the pictures not so much.  It starts out: "One small snowflake fluttering down - that's all you need for a snowman.  EXCEPT two more snowflakes...three thousand...eight million more..."
When I read, "eight million more," Lesley threw a handful of fake snow into the air and the kids got a huge kick out of it!
Pip & Squeak by Ian Schoenherr.  After rushing through the snow to get to their friend's birthday party, two mice realize they forgot the present (cheese) at home and bring a carrot instead.
I thought this book was cute until I actually read it in storytime and I realized that the mice weren't really nice to each other and had bad attitudes.
Music / Sing-Along
CD:  "Popcorn"
You put the oil in the pot
and you let it get hot
You put the popcorn in
and you start to grin
Sizzle sizzle sizzle  sizzle  sizzle  sizzle  sizzle  sizzle  sizzle sizzle  sizzle POP!
YouTube: "Build a Snowman"
5 Little Snowmen  -  The kids were so funny when they were melting!
Five little snowmen standing in a row
Each with a hat and a big red bow
The sun came out and stayed all day
and one little snowman melted away
Cube Roll:  Song
"I can hammer"
"Hickory Dickory Dock"
