Sending You My Love Pajama Story Time, 2/13/13
(This week's theme is Valentines and mail.)
Book: Guess How Much I Love You by Sam McBratney
This story is almost too sweet, but this group loved it. They especially enjoyed reaching up to show how big their love was.
Song: Love Somebody
Yet another song from my mom's Girl Scout repertoire. I changed the words from "Love somebody, yes I do. Love somebody and I won't tell who." to "Love my mommy yes I do. Love my mommy and she loves me, too." I stuck my family finger puppets, plus the puppy, into a brown paper bag marked love, then took them out one at a time, asking the room who has a sister, a brother, a mommy, a daddy, or a puppy. Amazingly, all four of the kids were only children, but they loved the daddy in the tie.
Book: My Heart is Like a Zoo by Michael Hall
Always a hit. One little girl in particular got a lot of giggles out of this one.
Song: Will You Be My Valentine?
Book: Hug Time by Patrick McDonnell
This one was a tad long, but they stuck with it almost to the end.
Song: Love Grows
Book: Panda Kisses by Alyssa Satin Capucilli
Song: Twinkle Twinkle Little Star
Song: Moon Moon Moon
Song: If You're Happy and You Know It
We sang goodnight to three animal finger puppets - duck, frog, and cow.
I use the same hello and goodbye songs at almost every session. Click here for the tunes and words. For descriptions of each of my story times, click here.
