Opening: Shake My Sillies Out – Raffi

(A nice surprise for me, really nice illustrations and just the right amount of text. The kids quite liked it.) 


Activity: Dragon’s Birthday

 

A dragon invites his friends to have some of his birthday cake, and they all wonder how he blows out the candles with his dragon breath. But dragons blow their candles on!

(A fun story for the kids, but mostly they like blowing out the candles with me at the end.)

(Loudly) 
We will ring those Party bells so loud and clear.
We will ring those Party bells so loud and clear.
We will hear the dingle, dingle
When they jingle, jingle, jingle.
Yes, we'll ring those Party bells so loud and clear.

(Softly) We will ring those Party bells so quietly...

(loud and deliberate) We will ring those Party bells so fast and loud...

...'round and 'round

...up and down
