Happy Birthday, Flannel Friday!

School Visit: Dr. Seuss' Birthday

Happy fifth birthday to Flannel Friday! I thank my lucky stars every day that I found such a welcoming group of people who are just as enthusiastic about working with children as I am. Thank you all for continuing to make Flannel Friday a fun and engaging space!

This week, we had a special daycare group visit us to celebrate Dr. Seuss' birthday. Instead of reading books by the Dr. himself, I chose to read past winners of the Geisel Award.

Books: You Are (Not) Small by Anna Kang and The Watermelon Seed by Greg Pizzoli

Songs / Rhymes: Welcome to the Library”, “Hello, How Are You?”, “Bread and Butter”, “Open, Shut Them”, “Zoom, Zoom, Zoom”, “The Banana Song”, and “I Wiggle My Fingers”.


Bread and Butter
Bread and butter
Marmalade and jam
Let's say hello as high as we can
(whisper: hello)
Repeat with:
...low as we can as we can
...slow as we can
...loud as we can
...quiet as we can

Zoom, Zoom, Zoom
Zoom, zoom, zoom
We're going to the moon.
Zoom, zoom, zoom
We're going to the moon.
If you want to take a trip
climb aboard my rocket ship.
Zoom, zoom, zoom
We're going to the moon.
In 5, 4, 3, 2, 1: Blast off!
