Monsters!




Today's sotry time theme was monsters!  We started off with a wiggle chant:
Monster, Monster, turn around
Monster Monster, touch the ground
Monster Monster. show your shoe
Monster Monster, how old are you?
Monster Monster, reach up high
Monster Monster, blink your eyes
Monster Monster,slap your knees
Monster Monster, sit down please

These are the books we read:
My Monster Mama Loves Me So by Laura Leuck
Five Ugly Monsters by Tedd Arnold
The Hungry Monster  by Phyllis Root
How to Potty Train Your Monster by Kelly S. DiPucchio

We did a few wiggle songs between stories:
If You Ever See a Monster
If you ever see a monster,
A big ugly monster,
If you ever see a monster,
Here's what you do!
Make this face....
And this face....
And this face....
And this face....
If you ever see a monster
Make sure you shout BOO!!
(make sure to pull funny faces!  or let some of the children decide what faces to pull)

If You're a Monster and You Know It
If you're a monster and you know it, show your claws
If you're a monster and you know it, show your claws
If you're a monster and you know it
and your claws will surely show it
If you're a monster and you know it, show your claws

repeat with:
chomp your teeth
stomp your feet
growl out loud

Craft:
We made paper bag puppets.  I found a bunch of odds and ends and let the kids get creative about what their monster looked like.  Some had ten eyes and others had one.  They even gave them names like Ned, Muffin, Blueberry, Sparky and Monstee.  It was a lot of fun!
