Book: The Dot by Peter H. Reynolds

Song: “Polka Dots” (Miss Carole, Polk-a-Dots)

Book: Ten Black Dots by Donald Crews

Flannel: flannel telling of Dog’s Colorful Day by Emma Dodd

Activity: I had a set of felt circles in red, yellow, blue, and green. I gave each child a set of the same color circles cut out of paper. As I placed my circles on the flannelboard, I asked the children to copy my patterns and configurations. This activity seemed to go pretty well, though the younger children in the crowd found it a little challenging. It might also be tough to do with a large crowd.

Book: Press Here by Herve Tullet

Activity: Polka Dot bookmarks 

I gave each child strips of card stock and let them stick color coding stickers in various colors on the strips to make bookmarks. Simple craft, but still gave them a chance to be creative and practice their fine motor skills.
