Ten Little Ladybugs by Melanie Gerth

Feltboard:

“Tiny Tim”

I had a little turtle,

His name is Tiny Tim.

I put him in the bathtub to see if he could swim.

He drank up all the water, he ate up all the soap.

Now he’s sick in bed with a bubble in his throat.

HICCUP!

As I’m sure you all know, March 2 is Dr. Seuss’s birthday, and also Read Across America Day. In honor of the day, every library in my system created some sort of programming related to our favorite doctor. More details on our special programming can be found here.

Dr. Seuss’s ABC: an amazing alphabet book by Dr. Seuss

Finger Play:

“One Little Cat”

One little cat on a sunny day
Put on his hat and went out to play
Two little cats when the sky turned dark
Put on their hats and went to the park
Three little cats when the sky turned blue
Put on their hats and went to the zoo
Four little cats by the kitchen door
Put on their hats and went to the store
Five little cats on a sunny day
Put on their hats and they all ran away.

Green Eggs and Ham by Dr. Seuss

Parachute Activity:

“I Don’t Like Green Eggs and Ham”
(to the tune of “London Bridge is Falling Down”)

 I don’t like Green Eggs and Ham
Eggs and Ham, Eggs and Ham
I don’t like Green Eggs and Ham
Sam I Am!

Would you like them here or there?
Here or there, here or there?
Would you like them anywhere?
Green eggs and ham?

I don’t want them here or there
Here or there, here or there
I don’t want them anywhere
Sam I am!

You should try green eggs and ham
Eggs and ham, eggs and ham
You should try green eggs and ham
You might like them!
