Today we ate-I mean- read some tasty books about cookies 😀

I changed things up and started Explorastory with a poem by Shel Silverstein called ‘Sharing’. Then I went into our first title which was:

The Cow Loves Cookies

The Cow Loves Cookies

Words by Karma Wilson; Pictures by Marcellus Hall

The children really cracked up at this one! It was a crowd-pleaser for sure.

Afterwards we recited some fun rhymes and finger-plays about cookies.

Making Cookies
I am making cookie dough,
(point to self)
Round and round the beaters go.
(move hands in circles)
Add some flour from a cup,
(pretend to pour)
Stir and mix the batter up.
(pretend to stir)

Roll them, cut them, nice and neat,
(pretend to roll and cut out cookies)
Put them on a cookie sheet.
(pretend to transfer cookies)
Bake them, count them, one, two, three,
(pretend to count cookies)
Then serve them to my friends for tea.
(pretend to pass cookies around)

Great Big Cookie (to the tune of I’m a Little Teapot)
I am a great big cookie,
(circle hands over head)
Chocolately and round,
(extend hands out to sides)
Filled with lots of chocolate chips,
(point to self in a few places))
The best that can be found.
(rub tummy)
I am a great big cookie,
(circle hands over head)
Take a bite of me.
(pretend to take a bite)
Tasty, sweet, delicious,
(extend hands out to sides)
I’m oh-so-yummy!
(rub tummy)
I WAS a great big cookie,
(circle hands over head)
The very best around.
(extend hands out to sides)
Now there’s nothing left of me,
(shake head)
Just crumbs upon the ground.
(sit down)

Our next book was:

Tea Party Rules

Tea Party Rules

Of course we made cookie magnets for our craft today. The children got really creative with and came up with some impressive gourmet cookies! check out the photos below for some fancy cookies.
