Opening song – So Happy You’re Here Today! – by Hap Palmer

Book – Katie Loves the Kittens – by John Himmelman – When Sara Ann brings home three little kittens, Katie the dog’s enthusiasm frightens the kittens away, until she learns that quiet patience is sometimes needed to begin a friendship.

Song – “The Paws on the Dog” (Tune :Wheels on the Bus)

The paws on the dog go trot, trot, trot.
Trot, trot, trot, trot, trot, trot.
The paws on the dog go trot, trot, trot.
All through the town.

The ears on the dog go flop, flop, flop…
The nose on the dog goes sniff, sniff, sniff…
The tongue on the dog goes lick, lick, lick…
The bark on the dog goes woof, woof, woof…
The tail on the dog goes wag, wag, wag…
The people with the dogs go, “SIT!”

Book – Move Over Rover! – by Karen Beaumont – When a storm comes, Rover expects to have his doghouse all to himself but finds that various other animals, including a skunk, come to join him.

Fingerplay: “Ten Little Doggies”
Ten little doggies went out one day, (hold up ten fingers)
To dig in the dirt and play, play, play. (dig, slap knees on each ‘play’)
Five were spotted, and five were not, (hold up one hand, then the other)
And at dinnertime they ate a lot! (pretend to eat)
