Today is National Moldy Cheese Day! FYI - we focused on the cheese, not the moldy, part!
Hello, How are You? by Dr. Jean
Cheese Please - i had a print out with the words and ASL for "cheese," "please," and "love" for the adults. The song goes like this:
Cheese, cheese, cheese, we love cheese
Please, please, please, give us cheese.
We love white cheese, yes we do.
Orange cheese tastes wonderful, too.
Yellow cheese for me and you
Oh, we love cheese.
We went through the signs then did the song twice.
Thanks, Mom! by Ed Emberly
Activity: Farmer in the Dell
I made character necklaces - one for each child and adult - and when we reached their character, they stood up and got to dance around.

Taste Testing Chart
We tasted three different cheeses: sharp cheddar cheese, string cheese, and mozzarella cheese. While they ate their cheeses, I read "The Stinky Cheese Man." After they were done eating, they came up and marked a line under their favorite cheese. Then we counted out how many people liked each cheese, which had more likes, and which had the least.

After Storytime, I brought out some playdough mats and fun foam for the kids and adults to play with. BIG HIT!
