Up, Up, and Away! Toddler Lap Time, 3/7/13 & 3/8/13
These two sessions were among the best Toddler Lap Times ever! I think it was mostly the fact that I was so well-rested from our snowless snow day on Wednesday, but it was also nice to have so many adults who were excited about story time and ready to participate.
Book: Higher Higher by Leslie Patricelli
I need another break from this book. I have just read it way too many times.
Flannel Board Song: Five Astronauts Went Up in Space
Song: Five Little Martians (based on Five Little Monsters)
Book: The Wind Blew by Pat Hutchins
This book worked well in the smaller group. I tried it once before with the big group (back before I had this blog, apparently) and have shied away from it since because it wasn't well received.
Song with Stick Puppets: I’m a Little (Red) Kite
Book: What Can You Do in the Wind? by Anna Grossnickle Hines
Song: Hands Up High
Song: Here We Go Up, Up, Up
Song: Shake My Sillies Out (Thursday) / I'm a Little Teapot (Friday)
Songs with Stars
- Song: Twinkle Twinkle Little Star
- Song: One Little, Two Little, Three Little Stars
- Song: There's a Star Upon My Head
Song: Itsy Bitsy Spider
