What Do You See?

I try to incorporate a “What Do You See” song into every season. The children love the melody, the predictive text, and that they can “read” along with me. Of course these are all inspired by Eric Carle’s Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? I use this story in the beginning of the year, so children know what to expect. Greg & Steve wrote a song to accompany the book:

Kimmy Schwimmy wrote a dinosaur song similar called Red Brontosaurus that I’m going to use weekly in storytime for the Dig Into Reading theme:

You can use this same melody to create your own. Here are some ideas you can use throughout the year:

    Very fun! I might have to ‘borrow’ this for my Dino week. I did a similar one with a transportation theme that was also a big hit. So many possibilities with such a simple idea. Thanks for sharing!

    Very cool. I think that this one will definitely be added to my dinosaur files!
