I can’t get enough Thanksgiving/Holiday food… or enough food stories. I’ve done all of these stories before… but never in this combination 🙂
Opening Song: If You Want to Hear a Story
Storytelling Activity: The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle (using story props)
Read-aloud #1: The Enormous Potato by Aubrey Davis
*Fingerplay: The Quiet Mouse
Read-aloud #2 (Big Book): The Little Mouse, the Red Ripe Strawberry, and the Big Hungry Bear by Don Wood
Action Song: Peanut Butter and Jelly
Read-aloud #3: Chicks and Salsa by Aaron Reynolds
Song (with shakers!): “I Know a Chicken” from Laurie Berkner’s Whaddaya Think of That?
(Could have also told “The Little Red Hen”…)
*The Quiet Mouse
Once there lived a quiet mouse
(Hold out fist with index finger extended)
In a quiet little house.
(Insert index finger into other fist)
When all was quiet as can be,
Out Popped He!!
(Throw arms and hands apart)
Closing Song: We Wave Good-bye Like This
