I hope you feel like dancing!  Today we read...

Dancing Feet! by Lindsey Craig
Easy-to-read, rhyming text depicts diffent animals dancing.  Clickity Clackity!

Brontorina by James Howe
Despite her size and not having the proper footwear, a determined dinosaur pursues her dream of becoming a ballerina.

Giraffes Can't Dance by Giles Andreae
Gerald the giraffe is too clumsy to dance with all the other animals at the Jungle Dance, until he finds the right music.

"Thelma Thumb" Fingerplay:

Thelma Thumb is up
Thelma Thumb is down
Thelma Thumb is dancing
All around the town
Dance her on your shoulders
Dance her on your head
Dance her on your knees
Then tuck her into bed!

We also danced to Greg & Steve's "Bop Until You Drop" from the album Kids on the Move!  We had the chance to bounce, float, wiggle (my favorite), go in slooooooow moooooootion, and spin.  That was so much fun!!!

Dance Ribbons are fun to make and even more fun to dance with!
