Letter of the Week
This week we are learning about the letter Kk.

Early Literacy Fact of the Week

Thank you all for coming to our toddler times. This is the last session for the fall, but I look forward to seeing you all again when we start up again in the spring. I hope you all enjoyed our time here, I know I did. I just want to reiterate the skills we’ve learned and will continue developing Children benefit from hearing another adult read to them, from watching other children get engaged in a story, and from being exposed to a wide variety of authors and writing styles. Your child will also learn some essential school readiness skills, like how to sit still for an extended period of time, how to pay attention to an adult other than his/her parents, how to take turns.

Songs & Rhymes

Open Song: Wake Up Feet
Wake up feet, wake up feet

Wake up feet, wake up feet
Wake up and wiggle in the morning.

other verses: hands, eyes, ears

Washing
We’re gonna wash that dirt right
Off of our hands,
We’re gonna wash that dirt right
Off of our hands,
We’re gonna wash that dirt right
Off of our hands,
And send it on its way.
…..off of our face…
…..out of our hair…

Hands Go Up
Hands go up and hands go down.
I can turn myself around.
I can reach down to my shoe.
I can listen so can you.
Now let’s sit, I’ll show you how.
The next story is starting now.

Closing Song: I Think It’s Time We Have To Go
I think it’s time, we have to go.
Wave your elbows, wave your toes.
Wave your tongue, wave your nose.
Wave your knees, wave your lips.
Blow me a kiss with your fingertips.
Wave your chin, wave your eye.
Now it’s time to wave goodbye.

Super Messy, Super Clean

Thursday, July 11 2013

Books

Henry’s Bath by Margaret Perversi, illus. by Ron Brooks
Little Oink by Amy Krouse Rosenthal, illus. by Jen Corace
Dini Dinosaur by Karen Beaumont, illus. by Daniel Roode

Music

“I Am a Bubble” by Charlotte Diamond, Charlotte Diamond’s World
“Muddy Water Puddle” by Hap Palmer, Sally the Swinging Snake
“Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes” and “Rub-a-Dub” by Joanie Bartels, Bathtime Magic

Songs, Rhymes & Fingerplays

Fingerplay: Five Little Piggies
Five little piggies, rolling in the mud
Squishy, squashy, squishy, squashy
Rolling in the mud
Along came the farmer and took one to the tub,
And that left four piggies rolling in the mud.

To roll in the mud: make hands into fists and “roll” arms around each other. “Squishy squashy” can be enacted by stomping feet (sitting or standing), and/or motioning hands up and down, with fingers stretched out. Motion someone walking for “along came the farmer.” Motion heaving a little piggy over your shoulder. Count the number of piggies on your fingers. Try speeding up the rhyme as you repeat it, for greater hilar¬ity, gross motor/fine motor coordination, and just for the challenge!

Song: The Bath Song
Can you wash your hair? (Shrug your shoulders, make an inquisitive look with your face)
I can wash my hair. (Pretend to wash your hair.)

Feet, face, knees

I can wash my hair.
I can wash my feet.
I can wash my face.
I can wash my knees.
This is the way we take a bath. (Wash your whole body!)

Shoulders, toes, hands, nose

I can wash my shoulders.
I can wash my toes.
I can wash my hands.
I can wash my nose.
This is the way we take a bath. (Wash your whole body!)

Song: Five Pigs So Squeaky Clean
Sing it to “Five Green and Speckled Frogs”

Five pigs so squeaky clean
Cleanest you’ve ever seen
Wanted to go outside and play
Oink! Oink!
One jumped into the mud
Landed with a big thud
Then there were four clean squeaky pigs.

Movement Rhyme: After a Bath (by Aileen Fisher)
After my bath,
I try, try, try
To wipe myself
‘Till I’m dry, dry, dry
Hands to wipe
And fingers and toes
And two wet legs
And a shiny nose
Just think how much
Less time I’d take
If I were a dog
And could shake, shake, shake

Flannel story: Elephants in the Bathtub
One elephant in the bathtub
Going for a swim
Knock, knock (clap twice)
Splash, splash (slap knees twice)
Come on in! (motion with both hands to come in)
Two elephants in the bathtub . . .

Five elephants in the bathtub
Going for a swim
Knock, knock
Splash, splash
It all fell in!

Song: This is the Way We Wash Our Hair
This is the way we wash our hair, wash our hair, wash our hair
This is the way we wash our hair, so early in the morning
This is the way we . . .
Wash our arms
Scrub our backs
Wash our knees
Scrub our feet
Don’t forget behind your ears
