This is actually one of our self-directed programs right now :) Come make your own rhymes anytime you come in!

Billy Goats Gruff

My Body - October 7

We actually did not have anybody come this day, but this is what I had planned. I will re-use a few things for an upcoming Being Healthy Storytime

 Welcome Song (again from Jbrary) only this time we would have cut out the "read together" and added "dance together" with the scarves.

Book: I Love You, Nose to Toes!

Song: We Clap Our Hands by Jim Gill with egg shakers

Book: Tickle Monster by Edouard Manceau

Movement: Your Body Has Lots of Bones (song i came up with - will post in a few weeks)

Book: Wild Feelings by David Milgrim

Song: Toe Leg Knee by Jim Gill

Book: My Nose, Your Nose by Melanie Walsh
Action: Tickle Your.... i would have had adults/kids take turns tickling the other person's toes, elbows, hair, etc.

Goodbye Songs

For Social Hour I was going to have adults trace their children then they could color and add stickers to their body outline.
