Books:

Pete’s a Pizza
William Steig  

Hi, Pizza Man
Virginia Walter

 

 

Bread and butter, marmalade and jam

Let's say hello as quiet as we can

(whisper: hello)

...loud as we can

...slow as we can

...fast as we can

...high as we can

...low as we can

...nice as we can

 

Hello everybody and how are you?

How are you, how are you,

Hello everybody and how are you?

How are you today?

Come on everybody and clap your hands‚

 

Who’s that, tapping at my window,

Who’s that, knocking at my door?

Abby, knocking at my window,

Michael, knocking at my door.

Now it's time for story time, doo da, doo da

Now it's time for story time, oh the doo da day

Raise your arms and say, Hooray! It’s a library day‚

Now it’s time for story time, oh the doo da day

Clap your hands and say‚

Stomp your feet and say‚

 

I’m gonna shake, shake, shake my sillies out,

Shake, shake, shake my sillies out,

Shake, shake, shake my sillies out,

Wiggle my waggles all away

Stretch, yawn, jump, clap

 

Where is shaker, where is shaker

Here I am, here I am!

How are you today, friend?

Very well, I thank you.

Run away. Run away.

...rolling on the floor

...jumping up and down

...shaking on my shoe

 

We’re going to Kentucky

We’re going to the fair

To see the senorita

With flowers in her hair

Shake it baby shake it

Shake it if you can

Shake it like a milkshake

And do the best you can

Shake it to the bottom

Shake it to the top

Turn around and around and around,

Until you make it stop

 

We Are the Dinosaurs by Laurie Berkner

We are the dinosaurs, marching, marching

We are the dinosaurs,

WHADDAYA THINK OF THAT?

We are the dinosaurs, marching, marching

We are the dinosaurs, we make the earth flat--

We make the earth FLAT!

We stop and eat our food, when we’re in the mood

We stop and eat our food on the groooouuund

We stop and eat our food, when we’re in the mood

We stop and eat our food, and then we march around ‘cause

 . . . (chorus)

We stop and take a rest, over in our nest

We stop and take a rest at the end of the day

We stop and take a rest, over in our nest

We stop and take a rest and then you’ll hear us say

We are the dinosaurs. . .

And then we Rooaaarrrr!

‘Cause we are the dinosaurs!

 

 

Math Moment:

Back in 2015 a guy named Mike Vegas ordered pizza and spicy wings from Domino’s. At first he ate only the pizza, but when he finally opened the wings, he found $1,300 of cash stuffed in the box! The delivery driver had taken all the money he’d collected from the deliveries before Mike and hidden it in the box, but forgot to take it out. Being a good guy, Mike brought the money back to Domino’s. They were so happy that they thanked him by giving him free pizza for a whole year. It just goes to show that being a good person pays off, especially if you really, really like pizza.

 

If Mike’s dinner had 8 pizza slices and 10 wings, which one had more pieces, the pizza or wings?

Little leaves go falling down

Orange and red, yellow and brown

Whirling, whirling, round and round

Down, down, down.

 

Go round and round the circle

Go round and round the circle

Go round and round the circle

As we have done before

Go in and out the circle‚

Go up and down the circle‚

 

When the parachute goes up

Stomp your feet

When the parachute goes up

Stomp your feet

When the parachute is high

And floats up in the sky

When the parachute goes up

Stomp your feet.

... bend your knees

...lift one leg

...shake your head

...shout hooray

 

Tree Song by Lorraine Hammond

This is my trunk, I’m a tall tall tree

In the autumn the apples grow on me,

They drop, they drop.

This is my trunk, I’m a tall tall tree

In the winter the snowflakes fall on me,

Brrrrr, Brrrrr

This is my trunk, I’m a tall tall tree

In the spring time the blossoms grow on me.

They open, they open.

This is my trunk, I’m a tall tall tree

In the summer the breezes blow through me,

I bend, I bend.

This is my trunk, I’m a tall tall tree

In the autumn the apples grow on me,

They drop, they drop.

 

Great big dog came down the meadow

Wagged his tail and shook the meadow

Go away dog, go away dog,

You can’t have my baby

Mama loves you, Papa loves you

Everybody loves the baby

 

Mighty pretty motion

Toodala

Toodala, Toodala

Mighty pretty motion,

Toodala,

Toodala la lady.

Rock old Soney,

Toodala . . .

Clap your hands . . .

Stamp your feet . . .

Goodbye, story time!

Hello everybody and how are you?
How are you, how are you,
Hello everybody and how are you?
How are you today?
Come on everybody and clap your
hands….

Who’s that, tapping at my window,
Who’s that, knocking at my door?
Abby, knocking at my window,
Michael, knocking at my door.
Now it's time for story time, doo da, doo da
Now it's time for story time, oh the doo da day
Raise your arms and say “Hooray! It’s a library day”

Now it’s time for story time, oh the doo da day
Clap your hands and say…
Stomp your feet and say…
If you're happy and you know it,
shake your egg (2x)
If you're happy and you know it,
and you really want to show it
If you're happy and you know it,
shake your egg.

I like apples, I like apples,
Nice and sweet, nice and sweet.
Crunchy, crunchy, crunchy.
Munchy, munchy, munchy.
Good to eat, good to eat!
I like ice cream, I like ice cream
Nice and sweet, nice and sweet
Ooshy ooshy ooshy, gooshy gooshy gooshy,
Good to eat, good to eat!
I like popcorn...
What a treat, what a treat
Crunchy crunchy crunchy
Munchy munchy
Good to eat, good to eat!

Way up high in the apple tree
Two little apples smiled at me.
I shook that tree as hard as I could
Down came the apples!
MMM! They were good!

Little leaves go falling down
Orange and red, yellow and brown
Whirling, whirling, round and round
Down, down, down.
Go round and round the circle
Go round and round the circle
Go round and round the circle
As we have done before
Go in and out the circle…
Go up and down the circle…

When the parachute goes up
Stomp your feet
When the parachute goes up
Stomp your feet
When the parachute is high
And floats up in the sky
When the parachute goes up
Stomp your feet.
... bend your knees
...lift one leg
...shake your head
...shout hooray

I start out green
Often fragile and small
I grow through 2 seasons
On something tall
But there are changes
When the nights turn cool
That happen to me
When kids go back to school
I’m a leaf! On a growing tree
Watch me turn color—
One, two, three!

They drop, they drop.

Come up horsey, hey hey
Come up horsey, hey hey
Come up horsey, hey hey
Come up horsey, hey hey
Mama’s gonna buy you a little lap dog…
Put him in your lap when she goes off
Mama’s gonna buy you a little blue bird…
Gonna sing (whistle)
When she goes off
Mama’s gonna make you an apple pie…
Hush little baby, don’t you cry
Mighty pretty motion
Toodala
Toodala, Toodala
Mighty pretty motion,
Toodala,
Toodala la lady.
Rock old Soney,
Toodala . . .
