Letter Tree/Letter of the Day: P

Fingerplay/Movement: Five Little Puppies
Five little puppies were playing in the sun. (hold up hands, fingers extended)
This one saw a rabbit, and he began to run. (Bend down first finger)
This one saw a butterfly, and he began to race. (bend down second finger)
This one saw a cat, and he began to chase. (bend down third finger)
This one tried to catch his tail, and he went round and round. (bend down fourth finger)
The one was so quiet, he never made a sound. (bend down thumb)

Fingerplay/Movement: Ten Little Doggies
Ten little doggies went out one day (hold 10 fingers up)
To dig in the dirt and play, play, play. (pretend to dig like a dog with both hands)
Fiver were spotted, and five were not, (hold up one hand at a time)
And at dinner time they ate a lot! (pretend to eat)

Flannelboard Guessing Game: Where Has My Little Dog Gone?
Hide the dog under one of the pieces (washing machine, dog house, bed, rug). Sing the song and look for the dog.

Oh where, oh where has my little dog gone,
Oh where, oh where can he be?
With his ears cut short and his tail cut long,
Oh where, oh where can he be?

Glad to See You by Peter and Ellen Allard (from Sing It! Say It! Stamp It! Sway It!)
Blue Dog by Johnny Bregar (from Hootennany)-- with shakers!
Goodbye, Goodbye by Joanie Leeds (from I'm a Rock Star)

Craft: My Weiner Dog

  • Construction paper circles
  • Pattern for dog front and back (and ear if you like)
  • Glue
The kids wrote their name, on letter per circle, and then glued them together to make the "middle" of the dogs. I explained how some kids, like me, would have short dogs, but others, like Benjamin, would have longer dogs!
