On the Road: 3 Cheers!
Today we had planned a little adventure to see our friend Ms. Linsy's backyard chickens. Sadly the weather did not coop-erate (see what I did there?). Do you know why we planned to see the chickens? Because this week is letter "C" week!
You can sing along with me, to the tune the Farmer and the Dell
I'm glad you came today, I'm glad you came today!
Hello to everyone, I'm glad you came today.
We'll have some fun today, we'll have some fun today!
Hello to everyone, we'll have some fun today.
We found some fun litle chicken songs to share with you today. See if you can count how many eggs show up in the nest.
Have you ever seen chicks hatch from their eggs? I just love that sweet little "peep!" Can you name other animals that also hatch from eggs?
"You can't make an omelette without breaking a few eggs"
(Bookkitty might have made a mistake here. Can you spot the 2 animals that do NOT hatch from eggs?)
Maybe today you can ask a grownup to help crack an egg over a bowl, then beat it up all frothy with a fork. Pour it into a buttered pan & make the fluffiest golden delicious-ist eggiest scrambled egg. Then you can say you are Cheffin'
One of our most favorite "c" words over at the library is Caring. Do you know the story of the Lupine Lady?
And just like Barbara Cooney, we beleive that children are able to use their amazing brains & hearts to follow their dreams. Just in case you need more inspiration on this pseudo-philosophical pondering of a day....please enjoy the Three Questions:
Righty, so now it's time to use that noodle. Maybe go grab some junk mail & a pair of scissors. Tear out pictures that make you happy or inspires you. Glue them onto paper or cardboard (or your bedroom door). Make a collage of beautiful gardens or a fairy tale grocery store...the world is your oyster, be footloose & fancy free, the sky's the limit, you can have your cake & eat it too! All you have to do is be yourself & follow your dreams. Go get 'em, kid.
