Grandma’s Tiny House by JaNay Brown-Wood

Action Rhyme:

“Here is a House”

Here is a house built up high (hands over head to make a roof)

With two big chimneys reaching for the sky (raise arms up high)

Here is a window (draw a square)

Here is a door (pretend to open a door)

If we look inside (peek through fingers)

There’s a mouse on the floor! (scamper fingers away)

Dinosaur vs the Library by Bob Shea

Feltboard:

Five Funny Dinosaurs

Five funny dinosaurs letting out a roar.

One went away, and then there were four.

Four finny dinosaurs munching on a tree.

One went away, and then there were three.

Three funny dinosaurs didn’t know what to do.

One went away, and then there were two.

Two funny dinosaurs having lots of fun.

One went away, and then there was one.

One funny dinosaur afraid to be a hero.

He went a way, and then there was zero.

The Princess in Black

I mentioned previously that I like to dress up as characters from children’s books for Halloween. This year I was Princess Magnolia, or better known as The Princess in Black.

Untitled

The only thing I had to do was cut a piece of black felt to an appropriate cape size (I don’t recommend felt though, it was very heavy. But it was all I had on hand) and draw a flower, cut it out and pin it to my shirt. Easy Peasy.
