Finger Puppets & Felt Stories

This past weekend, I had the opportunity to attend a workshop held by an inspirational teacher named Nora Sanchez. She is dedicated to educating & teaching not only just children, but daycare providers as well and showing us the passion we should have towards teaching our children. She has such a LOVE for children and it totally shines through her personality. Through all of this, she has created her own felt stories & finger puppets that she sells and I ended up buying some. Here is a couple I wanted to share:

Birds (Here is the song you sing with this felt story)

There was one little bird in one little tree, He was so all alone, and he didn't want to be. So he flew far away, over the sea, and brought back a friend to live in the tree.

(Substitute two, three and four for one as you finish the verse, adding one more bird each time to the tree)

Now there are five little birds in one little tree, they are not alone they made a family. They don't fly far away, over the sea, and live very happily in the tree.

The Itsy Bitsy Spider (This is one of my kids favorites)

The itsy, bitsy spider went up the water spout.
Down came the rain and washed the spider out.
Out came the sun and dried up all the rain.
And the itsy, bitsy spider went up the spout again.

(You can repeat this again with the mama spider and say it in a different voice to make it fun for the kids)
