Welcome song – “Open, shut them” by Hap Palmer

Book – I Can Read With My Eyes Shut! by Dr. Seuss- The Cat in the Hat takes Young Cat in tow to show him the fun he can get out of reading.

FINGERPLAY: One Little Cat
This is from the Seuss page on Hummingbird Educational Resources!

One little cat on a sunny day
Put on his hat and went out to play
Two little cats when the sky turned dark
Put on their hats and went to the park
Three little cats when the sky turned blue
Put on their hats and went to the zoo
Four little cats by the kitchen door
Put on their hats and went to the store
Five little cats on a sunny day
Put on their hats and they all ran away.

Song -If You Like Dr. Seuss

(to the tune of “If You’re Happy & You Know it”)
If you like Dr. Seuss, clap your hands
If you like Dr. Seuss, clap your hands
If you like Dr. Seuss when the Grinch is on the loose
If you like Dr. Seuss, clap your hands
If you like Green Eggs and Ham stomp your feet
If you like Green Eggs and Ham stomp your feet
If you like Green Eggs and Ham, then go tell Sam I Am
If you like Green Eggs and Ham stomp your feet
If you like Cat in the Hat shout hooray!
If you like Cat in the
Hat shout hooray!
If you like Cat in the Hat, though he makes the fish so mad
If you like Cat in the Hat shout hooray
