    Sick Day Story Time

    There seems to be some sort of plot to keep us from going to story time at the library. We've been a whopping twice in all the kid's days. Every time we are set and ready to go something happens, like they take a break for a month - or we get sick. Like today. We were all set for the 10:30 story time for Dory, and um, well... she's got a cold. It came on hard and fast last night.
    So, I told her we would have our first one right here at home at the same time today.
    Here was the program:

    A, B, C, D, E by Justin Roberts on Great Big Sun
    We handed out the shakey-shakies (egg rattles) and sang our ABCs.

    The Z was Zapped by Chris Van Allsburg
    Dory named each letter. Jack tried.

    Number 1 by Hot Peas and Butter from Jack's Big Music Show, Season 1
    Everyone did a boogie dance to the song.

    Planting a Rainbow by Lois Ehlert
    We talked about the difference between seeds and bulbs.

    Mahna, Mahna from Muppet Hits (sorry, no link... )
    Tried to clap the rhythm. It's a bit hard...

    Hush!: A Thai Lullaby by Minfong Ho
    Everyone joined in on the "Hush!" and we practiced some signs for the different animals and words we knew.

    If You've Got 1 by Justin Roberts from Great Big Sun
    We did all of the motions the song suggested. :) It was fun.

    As they "put away" the rattles I ran upstairs, grabbed a rubber stamp and pad and met them in the hallway as they "left" and passed out pretty yellow daisy stamps to match the Growing a Rainbow book.

    Our first mock story time was considered a huge success since Dory and Jack wandered around for 5 minutes showing everyone they could their stamps... including the dog.
