The one with the waggly tail

I do hope that puppy’s for sale.

Book: Time to Say “Please”, by Mo Willems
Song: “Please and Thank You”
Say please and thank you,Book: If You Give a Pig a Pancake, by Laura Numeroff
They’re called the magic words,
If you want nice things to happen,
They’re the words that should be heard.
Remember please and thank you,
’Cause they’re the magic words.
Use ’em in the morning, noon, and night,
’Cause it’s a great way to be polite!
Please and thank you,
They’re the magic words.
(Yes, it’s the Barney song. Sorry.)
Fingerplay: “This Little Piggie”
This little piggie went to market.Book: Pssst! by Adam Rex
This little piggie stayed home.
This little piggie had roast beef.
This little piggie had none.
And this little piggie went...
Wee, wee, wee all the way home.
(Use fingers or toes for piggies.)
