Church Mothers Group Story Time, 11/19/14 (Thanksgiving Theme)

During the week before Thanksgiving, I did a story time for my church mothers group. Here, finally, is my write-up! 

Hello Song: Hello, how are you?
I don't like this song that much anymore, but it is such a security blanket, and I get nervous doing story time for my friends, so I decided not to change it.

Book: Bears Says Thanks by Karma Wilson & Jane Chapman
This is not my favorite of the Bear books - none lives up to Bear Snores On - but it was seasonally appropriate and well-received.

Rhyme: We Are Thankful 

Book:  How do Dinosaurs Eat Their Food? by Jane Yolen & Mark Teague

Song with Ukulele: Stomp Like a Dinosaur (based on Fly Like a Butterfly)

Song with Flannel Board:  Five Little Pumpkins Round

Book: All for Pie, Pie for All by David Martin & Valeri Gorbachev

Rhyme: Alligator Pie
I had never done this one before, but I would definitely use it again. Easy motions, silly sense of humor, perfect all around.

Songs with Ukulele: Let's Be Thankful / Twinkle Twinkle Little Star / ABCs
The first part of this medley doesn't really work unless everyone has the words to follow along.

Rhyme:  My Hands Say Thank You
