Hope you all have enjoyed the Robin Hood Festival. I was at the parade this morning and saw bunches of my little friends. It all makes me so happy to live in a small town!
This week was "Song and Dance" week, so we did lots of singing and dancing. Besides the "Freeze Game" and "Colors" songs, we read:
Dance Away, by George Shannon. We all got to do Rabbit's dance with him as he and his friends escaped the fox.
Three Cheers for Tacky, by Helen Lester. I just love Tacky! This time he and his buddies were trying to win the Cheer contest.
Giraffes Can't Dance, by Giles Andreae. Poor Giraffe is laughed at when he tries to dance, until he listens to the right music.
My goodness, where is everyone? Our groups have gone from 30-40 kids to 8-10! If you've ever stayed away because of the crowds, come this summer!
Go Away, Big Green Monster, by Ed Emberley. Even a few kids can make a big noise yelling "Go away!"
A Turtle in the Toilet, by Jonathan Emmett. This is a great combination of fun pop-up and silly ideas, like a closet of crocodiles or a skunk under the bed. It always gets good laughs.
We said good-bye to our little twins moving away, but said hello to a couple of new friends. Big grins on adorable little faces!
