Last week in my Family Time class, during Gathering Time, we had a discussion about favorite read-alouds while enjoying the books in my basket. One of my all-time favorite read-alouds for children is Ten in the Bed, illustrated by Penny Dale.
There are other versions of this children’s classic; this one just happens to be the one that I prefer. But the really neat thing is that there is also a children’s song that goes along with it. You can easily sing the book rather than read it.
Don’t know the tune?
Well, here’s a video of an adorable 4-year-old preschool class in Argentina singing and acting out the song that I found this morning as a result of checking my email. A notice from an early childhood education group that I’m a member of prompted me to visit Youtube.com and “meet” a new member of our group who has posted videos there.
The teacher of this class of 4 year olds is that new member and, as a result of the interaction of our online group, the music on the video is courtesy of Super Simple Songs of Japan, also a member. You’ve seen their creativity here on my blog before. So, get your child in your lap, turn up the sound, and enjoy this one together!
Warning: You will probably have to see it more than once! 😉
