Part of the One World Many Stories Summer Reading program
Opening: Shake My Sillies Out – Raffi
Book: The Frog Bride – Antonia Barber
(Too wordy to read, this is more of a story to tell with the pictures.)
Song: Five Little Dolls
(I really wanted matryoshka dolls for this program, so when I found them for around $12 on ebay, it was an easy decision ...then I just had to think of a rhyme for them!)
One little doll sat way up high
She fell off and began to cry.
She hit the ground and her side went ‘Crack’
Another doll came to help her back.
Two little dolls sat way up high,
One fell off and began to cry...
(continue to last verse)
...Five little dolls sat way up high,
Now they never fell off and never did cry
How many dolls were up so high?
One two three, four and five.
Book: When the Snow comes – Jonathan Allen
Book: The Gigantic Turnip – Aleksei Tolstoy
Activity: Boot prints
(Flannel Board prints that the kids have to try and replicate.)
How can we walk to make these prints in the snow? We did toes turned out, toes turned in, hopping, train tracks, and tightrope.
Book: Snow Bears – Martin Waddell
