The Plan

Book
From Head to Toe by Eric Carle
It’s time for another re-launch of the program and I always restart with this title. My friends who have come before know it and participate wholeheartedly. This sets such an awesome example for new friends who have just arrived.

Egg Shakers!

How It Went

I had a great time with a fantastic relaunch today. I think the most energetic song was “Dance With Me” which includes a “jump, jump, jump and slide” chorus. And “Like a Spinning Top” was the probably the most well-received by the crowd. I was happy to have a new artist for Shake, Shimmy! We had shaker eggs out for both “Shakin’ Everywhere” and “Fruit Salad Salsa”. The crowd cleaned up well afterwards and I had many compliments on the program!
