A B Squeeze

Yoga: mountain, moon, star and square.

Clap Your Hands

Paw Paw Patch/When I See You

A Cat Had a Birthday

We got out the big rope and passed it around the circle so we were all holding it. Then we shook and pulled and pushed it to Shake It All Over Town. We also sang Row Row Row, first the traditional way, and then the crocodile verse, (which requires screaming quietly, so we first practiced screaming quietly).

Old Oak Tree

Little Mr. Robin

Come Sail With Me

Merry Little Breeze

Building a New Way

Baa Baa Black Sheep

Bling Blang

I Couldn’t Sleep Last Night

On Wednesday and Thursday, we got out the big rope and passed it around the circle so we were all holding it. Then we shook and pulled and pushed it to Shake It All Over Town. Then we sang Row Row Row, first the traditional way, and then I taught them the crocodile verse. But this requires screaming quietly, so we first practice  screaming quietly, and then we do it. It went very well!

Now’s the Time To Go To Sleep

A B Squeeze

We also did Yoga: mountain, moon, star.

Come Sail With Me

Week of Oct 18, 2022

Come Sail With Me – if your child talks about a dump truck in the context of this song, it’s because Will pointed out that the pictures I drew of the “cars on the bridge” look like pickup trucks. It seems that other children as well find my drawing skills a bit lacking. So on Wed., we sang “the pickup trucks go beep beep.”

Clap Your Hands

Merry Little Breeze – I sang this on Wednesday. We talked about different kinds of wind, strong wind that blows hard, and soft winds that rustle the trees, and that blows leaves this way and that. They listened to the song with interest, and Etta said, “Again!” and I sang it again.

Old Oak Tree

Paw Paw Patch/When I See You

Building a New Way

Little Mr. Robin

A B Squeeze – this is a version of ABC that incorporates self-regulation sensory input, taken from Anne Green-Gilbert, a highly regarded dance instructor (now retired).
