Action Song: “Here We Go Jumping”
Here we go jumping high,
Here we go jumping low.
Here we go jumping around,
That’s how a kangaroo goes.
Here we go jumping fast,
Here we go jumping slow.
Here we go jumping everywhere,
That’s how a kangaroo goes.

Fingerplay: “Two Little Kittens”
Two little kittens sitting on a hill
One named Jack, the other named Jill
Run away Jack, run away Jill
Come back Jack, come back Jill

This was a very simple craft to do. I modeled it after an Oriental Trading craft that I did last year at this time, but just used paper supplies instead of foam since I had thirty crafts to prep for. The kids really enjoyed watching me curl the curling ribbon, they kept saying that I was using magic.

How It Went

I just have to keep writing what a dream group this daycare group is; they are fully engaged in the material, they participate with me, and they retain knowledge from the previous weeks’ storytimes, so I know that these hours are mattering to them! Letter K was an especially fun storytime to do because the kids kept pointing out that my name starts with “K.” In our flannelboard puzzle this week, I put a picture of myself on it and saved it for last. The kids laughed really hard when I pulled my picture out since they have been telling me the whole time that I started with “K.”
