Themes are hard yo. Sometimes when nothing else is coming together you just have to say screw it and go with a color.
Song: Good Morning Dear Earth
Flannel: Little Mouse (he was hiding in the red house today)
Flannel: Alphabet Soup- RED
Flannel: Things that are Red
In which I described flannel pieces from all sorts of different sets and had the kids guess what they were. Normally I'd try to come up with a cute couplet for each one, but for today please see the above note on saying "screw it"
Book: The Red Hen
by Rebecca Emberley
Song: Wheels on the Fire Truck
Song: Mi Cuerpo from Hot Peas n' Butter's Best of the Bowl: Ingles y Espanol
Flannel: 5 Little Apples
Song: Itsy Bitsy Spider
Book: Clifford the Big Red Dog from Clifford Collection
by Norman Bridwell
Funny story, I thought we didn't have any Clifford books for a while this morning because I always want to spell his name bIrdwell instead of bRidwell. Dyslexia strikes again!
Song: Turn Around from Hap Palmer's
Make and Take Craft: Red Collages
-red construction paper
-red pipe cleaners
-red tissue paper
-red glitter glue
Process: Cut the red paper and tissue paper into shapes. Give everything to the kids and let them go crazy. Some of the kids tried to make representative things like ladybugs or this itsy bitsy spider, others just had fun with glue sticks and tissue paper.
Time: Prep took 3 minutes, the craft took 25.
