It's time to register for our Spring Picnics! Click on "Rural Play n Learn Registration" then choose your town and check the Picnic box when you complete the rest of the registration.
For our traveling Play n Learns, June is TRANSPORTATION month. Enjoy all the ways we can go places. Here are a few of the songs we're singing at our playgroups as well as our featured website of the month.
I'm a Little Airplane
written by Leanne Guenther
tune of "I'm a Little Teapot"
I’m a little airplane, way up high,
Hold hand up to forehead to shade eyes looking into the sky and point with other hand

With my great big silver wings, watch me fly!
Hold arms out like wings and tilt them side to side

When the pilot tells me, I’ll come down,
Hold hands over both ears like you’re holding the radio headphones (earmuffs) pilots wear

Swooping and gliding, to the ground.
Hold arms out like wings and spin in a circle, then kneel on the ground

Lyrics to "The Wheels on the Bus" and many other fun songs can be found on our featured website:
Under Crafts, then Poetry and Songs, then Transportation

2018 Where in Eau Claire?!?

Friday, May 11, 2018

In the month of May we start counting down the days for school to end, counting the buds on the trees, how many flowers have come up and all the bugs we see. So our theme is COUNTING. Our featured website is:
Here are a couple of our songs as well.

Five Little Speckled Frogs
Five little speckled frogs,
Sitting on a speckled log,
Eating the most delicious bugs, yum, yum.
One jumped into the pool
Where it was nice and cool.
Then there were four speckled frogs.
(Continue until only one frog is left)

One little specked frog.
Sitting on a speckled log,
Eating the most delicious bugs, yum, yum.
He jumped into the pool
Where it was nice and cool.
Now there are no speckled frogs.

Five Fat Peas
Five fat peas in a pea pod pressed
(children hold hand in a fist)
One grew, two grew, so did all the rest.
(put thumb and fingers up one by one)
They grew and grew
(raise hand in the air very slowly)
And did not stop,
Until one day
The pod went POP!
(children clap hands together)
