1) These Are My Glasses - Laurie Berkner
My current opening song that we sing acappella every week. I start by asking them to show me their glasses and their book so that they remember the signs. We sing it through twice, then I'll ask them to quietly put their "books" in their lap.
These are my glasses (make the letter o with each hand)
And this is my book (hands together)
I put on my glasses (put "glasses" over eyes)
And open up the book (open book hands)
Now I read read read (hold book up in front of face like reading)
And I look look look (put glasses over eyes and look around room)
I put down my glasses and… (lower glasses)
WHOOP! Close up the book. (clap as if closing a book quickly)

8) How Do Dinosaurs Say Goodnight?
– Jane Yolen
This craft was taken from the CLSP manual. I copied the picture onto cardstock, set out some crayons for them to color the stegosaurus first, then came around with little individual cups of green fingerpaint. And wet wipes...
