Scott Bahlmann

Opening: Shake My Sillies Out - Raffi

 

Book: Ducks Don't Wear Socks - John Nedwidek

 
ducks dont wear socks

(This is always a hit!)


Flannel Board : The Hat - from the book Squid and Octopus by Tao Nyeu

 
2012-12-04_14-47-04_440

(A fun short story, Octopus finds a hat ...our kids know what it really is... but everyone in the ocean thinks it's something different.)


Book: Imogene's Antlers - David Small

 
imogene

(The reveal at the end was what really sold this classic for my group. They didn't seem too impressed during.)


Activity: My Silly Hat -
adapted from SurLaLune
Tune: This Old Man

 

On my head I wear a hat,
It is such a silly hat.
Wear it hear and there and to and fro,
Where else can my silly hat go?

(continue song with different body parts)

(We used bean bags as our silly hats, which was quite fun, and the kids are great at suggesting where the 'hat' can go next, from toes to bums.)


Book: Pigs to the Rescue - John Himmelman

 
Pigs to the Rescue-thumb-300x240-4541

(This is a fun book from Himmelman's series. The pigs just can't seem to get anything quite right.)


Activity: I'm Being Eaten By a Boa Constrictor - Shel Silverstein
(idea by Liesl Johnson)

 

(With a sleeping bag prop, this is a great engaging poem. I do it a couple of times, and have the kids shout out what part of me the Boa Constrictor is nibbling on.)


Book: Oh, Daddy! - Bob Shea

 
oh-daddy

(Such a fun simple book. I love everything about it!)


Activity: Silly Streamers

(Then we finished by dancing with our streamers.)
