Opening Song: Where Is Thumbkin? by The Wiggles
Literacy Skill: Talk & Read
Song: These Are My Glasses by Laurie Berkner
Song: If You're Happy and You Know It (traditional)
-Of course we have to include Where the Wild Things Are in this storytime! This is one is such a classic it's always fun to read because the parents remember it and it's a book both the parents and kids get excited about reading. When I picked it up to read many of the kids said "I have that book at home!"
Song: Feelings by Hap Palmer-I love this song because it has great vocabulary and the kids had to think about how they would express various feelings such as happy, angry, sleepy, and silly.
-Wild Thing Craft: My craft was inspired by Mizz Lizz's post about Where the Wild Things Are that I came across while looking for inspiration online.
This was by far the most successful craft I've done with my preschool group. I put out plates, yarn, paper, crayons, scissors, and glue and let the kid create and have fun. Several of them made more than one Wild Thing face and each one had a unique take on it which was so awesome to see. It was an easy craft and the kids loved it.
-Feelings Puzzle-we have some puzzles that fit great with our feelings theme so I put those out.
-Name that emotion-I printed off various pictures of faces making various emotions like happy, sad, scared, tired, etc. and hung them around the room for the kids to name.
