From Hope from Friday, March 20th

This is one of my favourite books ever.  The children love seeing all the different types of rocks and what they say about each rock.
I would take this book out for a nature walk and let the children see what rock they are seeing/looking at.  Another great place to take this book to is our own playgrounds and let the children look through the pea gravel. The biggest rock we usually find is the “wishing rock”. That is the rock that has a white ring around the whole rock.

From Brianna Monday, March 23rd

One of the preschoolers favourite songs to sing and act out is called “Wind That Bobbin Up.” The children would ask for this song almost everyday during our circle time. The actions and words are simple and easy to follow along with. We normally sing the song 3 or 4 times, but each time would be a different variation of the song. For example, you can sing the song fast or slow, you can hum it, or you can do actions only. There are also some additional lyrics you can add if you find the song to be short.
Wind the bobbin up
Wind the bobbin up
Pull, pull, clap, clap, clap
Wind it back again
Wind it back again
Pull, pull, clap, clap, clap
Point to the ceiling
Point to the floor
Point to the window
Point to the door
Clap your hands together, one, two, three
Put your hands upon your knee
Wind the bobbin up
Wind the bobbin up
Pull, pull, clap, clap, clap
Wind it back again
Wind it back again
Pull, pull, clap, clap, clap
Point to the ceiling
Point to the floor
Point to the window
Point to the door
Clap your hands together, one, two, three
Put your hands upon your knee
