Please shine down on me!
I love this song and yet I never seem to use it. It's too long for me to sing without the CD and almost too short to need the CD. But if you know me, you know I can not carry a tune...so - I think I will use the YouTube video from Cullen's ABC's in story time because I like everything about it....happy, positive, energized, fun, and it makes me smile! My story time moms are much more comfortable with their singing ability...so, they will catch on to this quickly. I think it will be fun with the hand motions.. Take a look, click here: Mr Golden Sun
I am in love with snowmen, snowdogs, snowbears, etc. When I saw the adorable snowmen on their sled on last week's Flannel Friday post for Lisa @ Libraryland, (click and check it out), I just knew I needed to do my own twist on it. I wanted to make the heads fall off. I call it funny and I am sticking with that!! Take a look!
Okay....here they go...give the sled a push!
Three little snowmen sliding on a sled,
one fell off and...
lost his head!!
Frosty called the doctor and the doctor said
No more snowmen sliding on the sled!
And so it goes!
Predictable and silly - I love it!
Oh, here's a part I hadn't anticipated...
Where's my head????
Can you match them up?
In case Mr Golden Sunshine melts your snowmen you might need Carole Peterson's I'm a Little Snowman from her CD H.U.M. (Highly Usable Music) Highly suggested by Piper!! We have great dramatic fun with this song.
There are many beautiful snow and winter books...but here, for reading aloud, I am quite classic,( if I say so myself!) Ezra Jack Keats' The Snowy Day is wonderful. Word by word, a perfect book, with pink and purple and blue snowflakes. I just adore reading it again and again.
I like this one too.
It reads with a snowy... peace - full - ness.
It's magic! (great job Kevin Henkes!)
Piper wants to be sure that you remember the indoor snowball fights from last winter! So I will provide the link to an earlier post here, a tutorial on making indoor snowballs and a song to accompany your snowball fights! What?!! You don't play music when you have snowball fights?! You will now!!
Thanks for stopping by Piper loves the library. Do you have a favorite winter book that we can "flannelize"? Just let us know in the comments. Maybe we can make flannel pieces to tell the story of your favorite book.
