The Letter O
Book: My Very Own Octopus, by Bernard Most
Fingerplay: “Open, Shut Them”
Open, shut them, open, shut them.Book: Owl Babies, by Martin Waddell, or Little Hoot, by Amy Krouse Rosenthal
Give a little clap, clap, clap.
Open, shut them, open, shut them.
Lay them in your lap, lap, lap.
Creep them, crawl them, creep them, crawl them
Right up to your chin, chin, chin.
Open wide your little mouth...
But do not let them in.
(Act out the hand motions.)
Fingerplay: “Five Little Owls”
The first little owl has big, round eyes.Book: Over in the Meadow, by Olive A. Wadsworth (I sing it instead of reading it.)
The second little owl is of very small size.
The third little owl can turn her head.
The fourth little owl likes mice, she said.
The fifth little owl flies all around,
And her wing hardly make a single sound.
(Count owls on fingers, and then “fly” hands around.)
