Hey! "H" is for Horses and Hay!

Today we talked about horses.  The kids learned the song "Horsey, Horsey on your way"  (see below-we'll sing it again so they can learn all of the words.) We also made clip-clop noises with our hands cupped and clapping together.   We had a nice circle time out in the sun on the grass.  Thank goodness for waterproof pants!  It was still surprisingly cold.  Don't forget to continue to dress your child warmly-even though it looks sunny.  Or at least still send hat and gloves.  Everyone needed them today.

On our yellow hike, the kids spent a long time climbing and playing on a group of downed trees that happen to have a "fireman's pole" right next to them.   This is a thin tree that is great for sliding down.  Everyone had fun pretending to be firemen putting out fires and sliding and climbing.  The blue group went on a great hike and had snack and stories in the woods.

Thursday we will be spending more time on "H" words.  Help your child to find other "H" words in their world.

Horsey, horsey on your way
We’ve been together for many a day
So let your tail go swish and the wheels go ‘round
Giddy up, we’re homeward bound. 

I like to take a horse and buggy,
as I go traveling through the town.
I like to hear old Dobbin's clip clop.
I like to feel the wheels go 'round.

Horsie, horsie, don't you stop,
Just let your feet go clippety clop;
and let your tail go swish,
And the wheels go round;
Giddyup, we're homeward bound!
