We did colors and shapes this week in storytime--always a great opportunity to pull out a few favorites. I read Pete the Cat (of course!), we played a round of Little Bear- "Little Bear, Little Bear, are you under the red square?", and we mixed up a batch of Magical Rainbow Stew ala Storytime ABC's.
I was later reminded by a co-worker that I had written this shoe rhyme (even before I ever read Pete the Cat). She had a whole cat/shoes/color thing going on that was fabulous. Thank you, Donna Holmen.
I had to read through a few verses before I got the rhythm right again, but it is a fun one.
For my favorite, fastest shoes have turned the color green!
I stood perfectly still on the street one day. (stand in place)
With my feet like this, Can you stand this way?
I stepped into nothing. But this isn’t very fun.
My favorite, fastest shoes are meant to run, run, run! (run in place)
Wondering what the kangaroo is for? "Kangaroo, Kangaroo, are you in the red shoe?"-- of course!
