Hello Song (using ASL): Hello Friends
It’s time to say hello.
“I’m writing you today to invite you to visit the Fenton Library’s Children’s Center. It’s a cheerful destination for families to explore books, movies, toys, puzzles, crafts and games. We even have a Librarian sculpture in our Mrs. Blue Shoes garden. I hope you can visit soon!”
Love, Miss Chris
Library Field Trip: Fenton-Winegarden Branch
We visited the Fenton-Winegarden Branch. There we visited Miss Chris, shared an activity in the Children’s Center, and read a book in the Mrs. Blue Shoes Garden.
Guinea pig, guinea pig hiding from you
Guinea pig, guinea pig peek a boo!
Repeat with different animals.

Drawing Story: Shape Story
Draw the shapes to this story as you tell it.
Once there was a green square but the square was very lonely.
Then one day, flop out of the sky fell an orange triangle and landed on top of the green square they were so happy together.
Then one day, plop an yellow circle landed above them and brightened up their day and they were so happy together.
Then one day, plop plop two small squares landed inside of the green square and they were so happy together but guess what happened?!
A brown rectangle fell down and landed inside of the green square and under the small squares and they were so happy together.
And would you look at that, we made something with all of our shapes!
Scarf Song: This is the Way We Stir the Paint
This is the way we stir the paint, stir the paint, stir the paint
This is the way we stir the paint so early in the morning
Repeat with different actions: dip our brush, paint the paper, blow it dry, frame the picture
Goodbye song: Goodbye friends
It’s time to say goodbye.
