Swingin' Wednesday!

***don't forget to enter my latest GIVEAWAY!!!***

Happy Wednesday, y'all!!!! I am excited to share my story time for today - we had a lot of fun with monkeys!! I found some great books for this story time. And, after looking through my blog, I realized that I have NEVER done a whole story time devoted to monkeys! I had a couple new book story times that had books with monkeys, but never have I had a Monkey story time. Well, now is the perfect time!!!

Opening Song: Shake My Sillies Out - Raffi

Book: One Monkey Too Many - Lynn Munsinger

Finger Play: Five Little Monkeys (we did 5 Little Monkeys jumping on the bed, but there are different ones! My 4 year old niece LOVES the 5 Little Monkeys swinging from the tree!!)

Book: Just Mommy and Me - Tara Jaye Morrow

Song: Little Baby Monkey (to the tune of Itsy Bitsy Spider)
Little baby monkey climbed up the coconut tree
Down fell a coconut and bonked him on the knee
Out came his mommy and wiped away his tears
And the little baby monkey climbed up the tree again

Book: Monkey and Me - Emily Gravett

Craft: Paper Bag Monkey Puppets (using this template from StoryPlace)

It was a great story time!!!

And since it's Wednesday, it's FMRNS!! Tonight is extra exciting, because it's the season finale of ANTM!!! Who's it gonna be, Anne or Chelsea?!?!?! Tune in tonight to find out!!!

I'm actually really excited about tonight's feature!! I wanted to see the 2005 drama TransAmerica with Felicity Huffman when it came out, but never did get to it. I am really looking forward to it!!!

We were fortunate enough to have a Bonus Night this week (quite by accident, I must say!). On Monday, A and I got together to watch Castle, but it wasn't on for some silly reason. We just happened to have another movie that is on the list, Network, a drama from 1976 with Faye Dunaway and William Holden available, so we watched that one!! And, of course, it was FABULOUS!!!! Can't wait for tonight!!!!
