“I Got the Rythym” preschool book club

356100

We started off this session of Story Explorers with a beat bop, bing bang, boom boom boom. I Got the Rhythm by Connie Schofield-Morrison is a CLEL Bell winner in the Every Child Ready to Read 2 category of Singing. I love the music, movement, and multiculturalism in this book.

Let’s Get the Rhythm of our Knees
Let’s get the rhythm of our knees (x3)
If you please
Let’s get the rhythm of our knees
Shoulders… Big boulders..
Heads… Oh dread..
Feet… How neat…

Read I Got the Rhythm.

We then made our own instruments to create our own beat.

We made tambourines out of paper plates like this post.
dsc_0004 dsc_0005 dsc_0012dsc_0016

We made guitars out of tissue boxes like this.
dsc_0010 dsc_0013

We made drums like this post using this free drum printable. The drum sticks are library blueberry-scented pencils.
dsc_0003 dsc_0006 dsc_0009

We made shakers out of prescription bottles and rice and beans. The kids could hear the difference in sounds between the ones filled with rice and the ones filled with beans. We decorated the bottles with stickers and deco tape.

I’d say the kids were happy with their stash.

“Pirates!”

For our little ones event this month, we celebrated pirates! We held this event in the library twice and at an outreach event housed by Severance Town Hall.

We colored the letter R and made pirate hooks out of cups like this post. One little friend created his own eye patch for a photo op.

dsc_0025dsc_0012 dsc_0021

We walked the plank.

dsc_0018 dsc_0009 dsc_0022

We exploded treasure chests like this post to see what was inside. I placed a jewel inside each one.

dsc_0001 dsc_0003

We made a pirate spyglass like this one.

dsc_0006 dsc_0011 dsc_0028

We made boats out of wine corks, like this post, and then floated them in the water. One friend demonstrated that he knew how sailboats work and blew the boats across the pool.

dsc_0017 dsc_0010 dsc_0020
Joke for the day: What is a pirate’s favorite letter? R? No, a pirate loves the C.

Early literacy tip: Humor is movement. Humor is language. Humor is socialization. Humor is “brain food.” Not only does humor provide a learning experience, it is also an important part of “feeding” brain development. When a child (or anyone) laughs, the flow of blood increases to the brain. How do you feel after a good laugh? Usually we feel energized and alert. Humor can set the stage for learning by helping children release tension and focus on the task at hand. Humor increases the brain’s receptivity to learning. So tell jokes and riddles, be silly, dance a jig-you will be creating the perfect climate for learning.

Is There Something in My Pocket?
Is there something in my pocket?
Could it be a moose?

Early literacy tip:  X is for Xmas gifts of literacy…year round! For any occasion, give children gifts of literacy materials: books, writing utensils, word games, etc.) When the child is giving gifts, have him or her write out the cards or gift tags. They can also make homemade books to give as gifts to others!

Early literacy tip: Y is for year-long reading! Family involvement with a child’s literacy development should be year-round. This will have a cumulative effect on a child’s growth in literary knowledge and skills. Don’t take a summer vacation from reading!

Song: Karma Kids Yoga’s “Yoga Clock (Tick Tock)

Open the Book
Arms, legs, both
Close the book. Open the book. Turn the page.
Start seated with arms stretched out in front of you, palms touching. To “open the book,” stretch the arms wide. To close it, bring them back together. To “turn the page,” open just the right arm and close it, then the left arm and close it. Repeat “turning pages” until the kids giggle. Repeat the whole sequence using legs instead of arms. Then try arms and legs together.

creaking, clanking dance – natarajasana/dancer pose 
carried her across frozen wastes – marching around the room, slower and slower
outstretched like an old hollow tree – tree pose/vrksasana

Song: “Head Shoulders Yoga Pose” – Kira Willey

Hoberman Sphere breathing ball

Savasana This was a guided savasana. We thought about how small bugs are but how, even when they’re small, they are able to clean up dead leaves, take care of other bugs for us, and even turn into butterflies. Even the smallest bugs have the most important of jobs.

Peace begins with me
Hold both hands overhead. On the word “peace,” touch the thumbs and pinky fingers together. On the word “begins,” touch the thumbs and ring fingers. On the word “with,” touch the thumbs and middle fingers. On the word “me,” touch the thumbs and pointers. Repeat this four times, the first time loudly and hands overhead. The second time, bring the hands down a little and speak a little softer. The third time, bring hands lower and whisper. The last time, bring hands to knees and speak words silently to self.

Playing with my yoyo

“I ate my breakfast.”
Repeat with other meals and Hermie getting bigger and bigger until the last verse when he is small again.
I said, “Hermie, what happened?”
“I burped.”

Early literacy tip: W is for words, words, words! Children learn and master a large body of vocabulary through extensive reading and writing (telling stories). Families can make word learning fun and exciting and relate it to children’s interests.

Special thanks to the Colorado Worm Man for his red wigglers!

We fed “worms” to birds, like this post from Learning 4 Kids.

We ate gummy worms (of course).
