Welcome Song – So Happy You’re Here – Hap Palmer

Book – Grumpy Cat – By Britta Teckentrup -Grumpy Cat likes to be left alone — or so he thinks…

Action Rhyme – Five Little Kittens
Five little kittens, sleeping on a chair.
One rolled off, leaving four there.
Four little kittens, one climbed a tree
To look in a bird’s nest; then there were three.
Three little kittens, wondered what to do.
One saw a mouse; then there were two.
Two little kittens, playing near a wall.
One little kitten chased a red ball.
One little kitten, with fur soft as silk,
Left all alone to drink a dish of milk.

Flannelboard – Three Little Kittens

Three little kittens,
They lost their mittens,
And they began to cry,
Oh, mother dear,
We sadly fear
Our mittens we have lost.
What! Lost your mittens,
You naughty kittens!
Then you shall have no pie.
Mee-ow, mee-ow, mee-ow, mee-ow.
You shall have no pie.

The three little kittens,
They found their mittens,
And they began to cry,
Oh, mother dear,
See here, see here,
Our mittens we have found.
What! Found your mittens,
You darling kittens!
Then you shall have some pie.
Mee-ow, mee-ow, mee-ow, mee-ow.
You shall have some pie.

The three little kittens,
Put on their mittens,
And soon ate up the pie;
Oh, mother dear,
We greatly fear
Our mittens we have soiled.
What! Soiled your mittens,
You naughty kittens!
Then they began to sigh,
Mee-ow, mee-ow, mee-ow, mee-ow.
They began to sigh.

The three little kittens,
They washed their mittens,
And hung them out to dry;
Oh mother dear,
Look here, look here,
Our mittens we have washed.
What! Washed your mittens,
You’re such good kittens.
I smell a rat close by!
Hush! Hush! Hush! Hush!
Hush! Hush! Hush!
I smell a rat close by.

Book – Pete the Cat and His Four Groovy Buttons – Eric Litwin- Pete the Cat loves the buttons on his shirt so much that he makes up a song about them, and even as the buttons pop off, one by one, he still finds a reason to sing.
Action Rhyme- “Five Little Kittens”
One, two, three, four, five (show the count with your fingers)
Five little kittens standing in a row.
The nod their heads to the children, so. (bend fingers like you’re nodding)
They run to the left. (wiggle fingers to left)
They run to the right. (wiggle fingers to right)
They stand and stretch in the bright sunlight. (stretch fingers wide)
Along comes a dog (move other hand close to fingers) Looking for some fun.
MEEEEEEOOOOOOWWWW!!!
See those kittens run! (hand goes behind back)
Book – Meow: A Day in the Life of Cats – Judy Reinen – Pictures show cats in all sorts of human activities, from eating breakfast and taking a bath to going to school and reading a bedtime story.

Song: “If You’re a Kitty and You Know It”
If you’re a kitty and you know it, say meow.
If you’re a kitty and you know it, say meow.
If you’re a kitty and you know it, then your face will surely show it.
If you’re a kitty and you know it, say meow.
Lick your paws, show your claws, swish your tail, do all four.
