Bath Time and Rubber Duckies 9.19.11

Open  Storytime
attendance: 69
Miss Mouse was wearing her bathrobe and towel wrap. (She was adorable.)  We interrupted her bath preparations.  She showed us her three rubber duckies: one small, one medium, and one large.
Miss Mouse: was hiding behind bath toys.  She was behind the scrub brush.  Instead of chanting to Miss Mouse to come out, come out, come out,  we yelled, “rub-a-dub-dub, Miss Mouse is in the tub.”
My Hand Waves Hello.  Also ears, lips, feet, hair and cheeks.
fingerplay:  Clap.  Clap your Lap.
Book 1: Bubble Bath Pirates by Jarrett Kroszocza. It’s Talk Like a Pirate Day so this seemed appropriate.
fingerplay: Roll Roll Sugar Babies.  I think there were some people who didn’t know this.  That’s good.
Book 2: Catch That Baby! by Nancy Coffelt.  Nudy Rudy!  It’s very fun.
Song: Planned: Everybody Wash, but I couldn’t find it. Instead I did Drivin in My Car.  It’s easy… a crowd pleaser, no one has to stand up but the wiggles get out!
Prop Song: Rubber Duckie with Ernie. We have an Ernie puppet, rubber duckie puppet, and props for the story.  Everyone sings along.
Prop Story: Walter the Washing Machine.  I think this book was a pop-up type book… called Wanda’s Washing Machine.  Someone turned it into a prop story. It’s fun telling Walter the Washing Machine to “eat dirt, Walter.”  He does a great job.  It would have been better if all the props were there, I was missing a clean shirt so I had to skip it which confused me and flow of the story.  The story was complete when I practiced it Friday, so i must have dropped it somewhere. Frustrating.
Fingerplay 3:  Hickory Dickory Dock.
Flannel:  Counting Duckies (soon to be on Flannel Friday)
and then suddenly it was a half hour and time to go.
My Hand Says Thank You…
Handout: Accucut Rubber Duckie

Titles I didn’t use but intended to:

  1. Here’s a flannelboard addition for you –
    Make 10 circles of various sizes in pastel flannel (pale pink, pale yellow, pale blue, pale lavendar, pale green) and embellish with some iridescent glitter glue. You could also create a flannel bathtub to scale.

    Use the pieces along with Sara Hickman’s song “10 little bubbles” from her CD “Toddler”
    (to the tune of the old classic 10 little indians…)

    I put all 10 bubbles on the flannel board, and remove them as the song plays:
    1 little 2 little 3 little bubbles 4 little 5 littte 6 little bubbles 7 little 8 little 9 little bubbles, 10 little bubbles go Pop Pop Pop!

    Great idea! Thanks Miss Ginny! SH 10/11
