Thoughts

Throughout the month of October, I have been using ASL signs with the song Flutter, Flutter Butterfly. I was very excited, because a lot of the returning parents and children remembered the signs!

Five Little Pumpkins

Five Little Pumpkins

20170320_134705_001

Five little pumpkins at my door,
A neighbor took one, and then there were four.

Four little pumpkins under a tree,
Along came a farmer, and then there were three.

Three little pumpkins looking so new,
I gave one away, and then there were two.

Two little pumpkins out in the sun,
Mom made a pie, and then there was one.

Of all the pumpkins, there was just one.
So I made a jack-o-lantern, and that was fun!

I have the jack-o-lantern pumpkin underneath the last pumpkin, and pull the normal pumpkin off to show the face below!

One of my colleagues came in today to talk about our new program, 1000 Books Before Kindergarten. I had to add the Open, Shut Them song to get attention back, but it all worked out!

Thoughts

The books I chose were a little long. Although I really like them, I don’t think that I would use them again for this story time age group.
