Because planning a program doesn't just take 5 minutes

Letter U

Opening Song: “I Am Here & You Are Here” by Peter & Ellen Allard (on Sing It! Say It! Stamp It! Sway It! Vol. 3)

Mystery Bag objects: unicorn, umbrella, underwear

underwear-dosBecause we’d already talked about the letter, I introduced each story or song by having them guess what U-word it was about.

Story: Underwear Do’s and Dont’s by Todd Parr (underwear)

one-big-pairStory: One Big Pair of Underwear by Laura Gehl (underwear).  Because, seriously, you can’t have too many underwear stories.

Song:  “The Hokey Pokey” with Father Goose on House Party by Dan Zanes (done under the parachute).  I thought the adults would hold the parachute and the kids would do the Hokey Pokey.  I picked this version because it has a musical interlude between verses, and I figured the kids could dance under the parachute during the music.  They really just wanted to dance under the parachute the whole time and didn’t care about the Hokey Pokey, which was fine, but I might choose different music next time.

fortunately-unfortunatelyStory: Fortunately, Unfortunately by Michael Foreman (umbrella)

Closing Song: “See Ya Later”

Craft: Decorate your own underwear (card stock underwear template with dot markers).  I also put out scissors in case they wanted to cut out their creations.



Possible subthemes: umbrellas, unicorns, upside down, underwear

Other possible titles:  

Unicorn Thinks He’s Pretty Great by Bob Shea (unicorn)

Ugly Pie by Lisa Wheeler (ugly)
