Burnham Bunch: Frogs

Frogs! (If you know me they are one of my favoritest things) We read Frog in the Bog by Karma Wilson (love love LOVE this book!) and Jump! by Scott M. Fischer. So much fun with our Frog in the Bog flannel board and finished with a rousing rendition of Five Green and Speckled Frogs — story prop idea was found on Librarians vs. Storytime


Burnham Bunch: Pizza

Happy to be back after a week of spring ‘break’. I decided on a pizza theme for today. Because, seriously, who doesn’t LOVE pizza!? We read a cute book by Frank Asch about Baby Bear having his first pizza. We sang a The Silly Pizza Song (didn’t get pictures of that flannel board, errr) But, you can find the words here.

Our craft today? A slice of pizza! Yummmmm, now I am getting hungry.

Burnham Girls: Lipgloss and Gossip

As we sat down to our delicious chocolate chip cookies from the Bridgewater Village Store, I overheard the girls talking about why another girl wasn’t attending today. ALL their stories were different and it led to a perfect discussion on gossip. It’s like a game of telephone and as  people add their insights, biases, and prejudices a simple story becomes one of legends.

The recipe only uses three ingredients and can be found on Your Homebased Mom: coconut Oil, un-petroleum jelly and Crystal Light mix. Super-easy! I found that my gloss came out perfect … but the girls’ gloss wouldn’t set? I am hoping that a little refrigeration will help that along! We discussed the many of uses of coconut oil … and the girls had an amazing time running it through their hair (sorry moms and dads!)

Burnham Bunch: Chicks

We read two books about chicks today: There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Chick by Lucille Collandro  and Chicks Run Wild by Sudipta Bardhan. Our flannel board was all about our silly Old Lady … boy does she like to eat some crazy stuff! Craft today: Chicks!
