Letter G

Dig into R.E.A.D.I.N.G at Blast off with Books

We learned how to sign the letter G:

G

Read two books:

Two at the Zoo by Danna Smith (FAVORITE)
How much does the gray in an elephant weigh? by Elle Van Lieshout

G is for Giraffe – a draw and tell from A is for Alligator

And:

Song – There are lots of animals! (Jean Warren)
(Tune:  “Mary Had A Little Lamb”)
Oh, there are lots of animals, animals, animals.
Oh, there are lots of animals, that live down at the zoo.

There are snakes and alligators, alligators, alligators.
There are snakes and alligators, just to name a few.

There are bears and tall giraffes, tall giraffes, tall giraffes.
There are bears and tall giraffes, and jumping kangaroos.

Oh, there are lots of animals, animals, animals.
Oh, there are lots of animals, that live down at the zoo.

Flannelboard –  “Five little ghosts” (YouTube, with modifications)
Five friendly ghosts flying through the door.
One flew away and then there were four.
Four little ghosts as spooky as can be.
One flew away and then there were three.
Three friendly ghosts making yummy stew.
One flew away and then there were two.
Two friendly ghosts having lots of fun.
One flew away now there’s only one.
One little ghost who’s a superhero.
Went to help a friend and now there are zero.

Action Rhyme: “Green Says Go”
Green says, “Go!” (march quickly)
Go! Go! Go!
Yellow says, “Slow!” (march slowly)
Slow…slow…slow
And red says, “Stop!” (stop and freeze)
Go! Go! Go! (march fast)
Slow…slow…slow (march slowly)
and STOP! (stop)

For our iPad time, we played with “My Very First App” an Eric Carle themed matching game. 

Blast Off with Books will return October 22nd for a super S.I.L.L.Y time!!
