Story Time Plan: Pets

Leave a comment

November 13, 2013 by Andrea

This was such a fun, simple story time!! I did not use the Folder Story or the Pet Hokey Pokey because of the length of the songs and inevitable pet discussions that occurred. The books were all hits, Gilbert Goldfish was an immaculate segway to the Goldfish Song which we danced to with scarves (and is now on the official favorite songs list here). I Heard a Dog Bark is a super fun retro Sesame Street song, which I actually just played the YouTube video. Gordon sings while all the others make various animal noises. We, of course, have every animal in puppet form so my small groups were lucky enough to have their own puppet/sound.
