Tales for Twos and Threes, 8/26

This story time was great. I had fun, the kids had fun, and the adults had fun. This combination of books, songs, and rhymes is a winner!


Opening Song: Hello, how are you?

Song: If You'd Like to Read a Book

Book: Kitten Red, Yellow, Blue by Peter Catalanotto (2005)
Mrs. Tuttle has a special way of telling apart the 16 calico kittens she recently gave away to the various helpers in her community. I'm working on adapting this to the flannel board, but it requires more cutting than my hands are interested in doing!

Rhyme: Blue is the Lake (three times)
(Original source: Mel's Desk)
Blue is the lake
Hold arms out in a circle in front of you
Yellow is the sun
Move arms, still in circle, overhead
Silver are the stars when the day is done
Wiggle fingers overhead
Red is the apple
Make a round ball with your fingers in front of you
Green is the tree
Hold arms up like branches
Brown is a cookie for you and me
Rub tummy!

Rhyme: This is Big, Big, Big (twice)


Book: Bark, George by Jules Feiffer (1999)
This book is always a huge hit, and it went especially well today because many in the group had not heard it before.

Song: Old MacDonald Had a Farm

Song: I'm a Little Teapot

Song: Turn Around

Flannel Board Rhyme: Five Enormous Dinosaurs 

Song: One Little Finger 

Song: Tommy Thumb

Song: The Wheels on the Bus (Raffi)

Song: ABCD Medley 

Goodbye Song: We Wave Goodbye Like This
