Sea Food Storytime October 10

We tried out a new feltboard approach! Using grant money, I purchased a large tan piece of felt. From now on, we will hang this over the bookshelf to make our story area less distracting and a bigger area for felt stories! It worked very well today.

Hello, How are You? by Dr. Jean

I'm the Biggest Thing in the Ocean by Kevin Sherry

Then I passed out laminated pictures of the different animals in Carole Peterson's song "Sea Shell, Sea Shell" on her CD Highly Usable Music H.U.M All Year Long. As their animal came up in the song, they brought their animal to our new feltboard. Animals in the song: starfish, seahorse, angelfish, octopi, shark.

Sea Creature Guessing Game - I made up mini riddles about different sea animals. I had dye-cut sea animals on the feltboard to help them guess the animal in the riddle. The animals were: dolphin, shark, sea turtle, seahorse, octopus, starfish, fish. Once they guessed the animal correctly, I moved it off to the side.

"Octopus Song" by Charlotte Diamond on her CD 10 Carrot Diamond. First I acted the song out with pictures of animals (placing one over the other) then we danced around and acted the song out with our bodies.

It is Time to Say Goodbye by Dr. Jean

Wave goodbye with your elbow
Wave goodbye with your ankle
Wave goodbye with your shoulder
Wave goodbye with your ear
Wave goodbye with your knee
Wave goodbye with your foot
Wave your hand and say "Goodbye."

NEXT WEEK: Come dressed up in playclothes, gaudy clothes, mismatched clothes, or a costume! Jenna will be! :) If you forget or run out of time, we will have extras available for the kids to play with.

THE FOLLOWING WEEK (October 24): We will be playing with balloons, so if your child has a latex allergy PLEASE let me know!
