I'll post about the first one today, and, if I figure out how to adapt it, the second one next week.
This one is called Knock, Knock!
It begins like this:
This verse repeats four more times, and remains the same except for the relative who comes through the door. Grandpa Joe, Aunt Melissa, Uncle Moe, and Cousin Artie each join the group, and then the last verse goes like this:
This has so many possibilities, but my tentative plan for using this rhyme at Baby/Toddler Story Time is this:
- Put a door on the flannel board. Make a knocking sound, and prompt parents and kids to say "Who's there?"
- Bring out Grandma Jennie. (I'm using the family clip art from kizclub.com until I get around to either making or buying a set I like better.)
- Repeat until all the relatives are on the flannel board, then put up a picture of a pizza.
- Say goodbye to each relative one by one.
