The library was closed yesterday, so it was arrive and read for me today!
Book: Hello, Baby! by Mem Fox and Steve Jenkins
Fingerplay: Itsy Bitsy Spider
Book: If You See a Kitten by John Butler
Circle Song: My Little Red Wagon
Circle Song: The Elevator Song
Transition: I Clap My Hands
Flannelboard Story: Pete the Cat: I love my White Shoes
Thoughts: The socks in the washing machine was new and different and the kids were more attentive than I thought they would be (as a precaution, I only used a few pairs of socks instead of dumping in all 12 pairs). I don't think I could have gotten away with more pairs, though, as by the end they were ready to move on. I want to try this again with the kids pulling out the socks. I did it myself this time to test it all out.
The kids really liked the second book and made all the appropriate sounds (they thought it was funny to say "Peeee-ew!" and "Yikes!"). Pete the Cat is always fun, but by then the kids were distracted and a little too bouncy to sit quietly for it.
I use the same Hello and Goodbye songs at every Toddler Time.
