Book: The Carrot Seed by Ruth Krauss, illustrated by Crockett Johnson
Song: One Seed by the Laurie Berkner Band
Book: Planting Seeds by Nancy Elizabeth Wallace
Song: Sunny Day
I decided not to sing Love Grows again, as it was not a big hit and went instead with Elizabeth Mitchell's Sunny Day. The kids liked this one, and the adults remembered it from previous sessions.
Book: Ten Little Caterpillars by Lois Ehlert
This book was a bigger hit with this group than it has been with any other. One little boy came right up and pointed out the caterpillar on each page.
Song: One, Two, Three Caterpillars
Song with Puppet: Flutter, Flutter Butterfly
Song: Here We Go Up, Up, Up
Song: I'm a Little Teapot
Songs with Foam Flowers:
- Oh Little Flower (also with flannel board)
- There’s a Little Flower Growing...
Flannel Board: Five Little Birds
I normally don't do this song right after the flannel board that uses the exact same words, but it seemed like it would go over well this time, and I was right. It's also nice to have the repetition of the same ideas in a different format.
Song: If You’re Happy and You Know It
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.
