Will You Be a Friend of Mine
tune: London Bridge
Have the children form a circle and sing the song.
Will you be a friend of mine?
Friend of mine? Friend of mine?
Will you be a friend of mine
And come along with me?
Yes I'll be a friend of yours,
Friend of yours, friend of yours,
Yes I'll be a friend of yours
And go along with you.
Family Picture Tree
Cut from magazines pictures of Daddies, Mommies, Brothers, and
Sisters. Give each child a tree shape and paper leaves. Have them
paste individual pictures of Daddies, Mommies, Brothers, and Sisters
onto the paper tree and leaves.
Need: Silhouettes, or magazine pictures of mother, father, baby,
brother, sister. Large poster board with each family member's picture
across the top and the children's names written on the left side.
Work individually with the children and ask about each person in the
family (Do you have
a mommy). If yes, help the child place a colored
square next to her name under "mother." Give each child silhouette patterns needed to make his/her own family
and construction paper.
Provide an assortment of magazine pictures of household objects. Hold
them up and ask the children to identify them. Have the children
select objects they want and paste these onto a paper house shape.
