Circle: the week of September 13th

topics: monarchs and milkweed
during the first part of the week we will learn about monarchs and milkweed through our yoga poses. On Friday we will play a game where some children are the milkweed and others the butterflies. Milkweed will stand still, eyes closed and butterfly will land gently on a body part. Milkweed has to identify the body part without open eyes. If correct, they switch places and start the game again.
We will be planting milkweed in the yard, if anyone has any plants or seeds they'd like to donate, please email me.

daily game: a bean bag obstacle course, children have to complete the course while balancing or tossing their bean bag.

Songs for the week:

Don't Flutter By Butterfly
pg 67 Seven Times the Sun, by Shea Darian

Don't Flutter by butterfly
come rest on my finger
come rest on my cheek
come be my guest for a day or a week
but don't flutter by butterfly

jump rope and park song: Kookaburra

Kookaburra sits in the old oak tree
Merry merry king of the woods is he
Laugh kookaburra
Laugh kookaburra
Gay your life must be

Kookaburra sits in the old oak tree
Eating all the gumdrops he can see
Stop Kookaburra
Stop Kookaburra
Leave a few for me

How many gumdrops will he leave ( count until a mistake is made).
