Storytime Share – Approaches to Learning : Self Control 2

Standard: Approaches to Learning: Self Control

Specific skill focused on: Empathy and Caring

 

Song: “Shake My Sillies Out” (Raffi, Singable Songs for the Very Young)

Book: When I Care about Others by Cornelia Spelman

Song: “I Love You Too” (Ziggy Marley, Family Time)

Book: Guess How Much I Love You? by Sam McBratney

Activity: Heart Matching Game

For this activity, a set of flannel hearts (enough for each child) are cut in half. Each child receives one half of a heart and matches it to the other half that is placed on the flannel board. The cuts are made like puzzle cuts so each heart and its match is distinctive.

Fingerplay:

I have a little heart (place hand over heart)

And it goes thump, thump, thump (pat chest with fingers)

It keeps right on beating

When I jump, jump, jump (jump in place)

I get a special feeling (hug self)

When I look at you (point to children)

It makes me want to give you (shrug shoulders shyly)

A kiss or two (blow kisses)
