Opening song

Book: Flora’s Blanket by Deb Gliori

Flora had some different feelings in that book – she was sad, angry, sleepy and happy. We’re going to sing a song about those feelings now.

Song: “If you’re happy”
If you’re happy and you know it, clap your hands.
If you’re sad and you know it, rub your eyes “Boo hoo”
If you’re angry and you know it, stomp your feet.
If you’re sleepy and you know it, close your eyes.
If you’re happy and you know it, clap your hands.

Rhyme: Fuzzy Wuzzy Caterpillar
Into a corner will creep  (creep fingers up arm)
He’ll spin himself a blanket (roll hands)
And then fall fast asleep  (rest head, close eyes)

Fuzzy, wuzzy caterpillar
Very soon will rise  (wake up)
And find he has grown beautiful wings (connect thumbs and flap hands like wings)
Now he’s a butterfly!

Song (with scarves): “Don’t Wash My Blanket” by Hap Palmer: Peek-a-boo and other songs for young children
Chorus: Slowly shake scarf up and down
Verse: Turn in circle
