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
