Flashlight Fireflies

Flashlight Fireflies is a new rhyme we are working on this week. Babs really loved it probably because she gets to use a flashlight. ūüôā I picked up a¬†two flashlights at the Dollar Tree. They are the small ones so they won’t be to heavy for tiny hands. Our hallway is dark enough to do this activity but a bedroom with the curtains closed would work great too. The first time I say the rhyme I show her the motions with the flashlight. The second time around I give her a flashlight and we do it together. She liked it so much we did this rhyme about 10 times! The rhyme is listed below, however,¬†you can download the word document for Flashlight Fireflies¬†and print it. I like to print the rhyme and also a¬†coloring page¬†to go with it.¬†I foundWP_20151013_17_23_18_Pro this coloring page at COLORING.WS from DLTK’s¬†website.¬†I¬†will have¬†Babs color it later this week and add it to our song and rhyme binder.¬†Then she can go through and¬†use the picture to choose a rhyme. I also add the word document¬†because¬†I would probably mess up the words if I didn’t….hahaha!¬†The motions are in parenthesis below¬†each line.¬†It goes like this….
