Musical Monday: A Wonderful Woman

Still on I Love You Rituals because my first day with my new kiddos is next Monday! I may wait to show them this song until we get to nursery rhymes and folk tales but it's one of my favorites from this book:
(I don't know if I like this thing... I may take it off...) 

I was all ready to record myself singing this song for you and posting it on youtube... but that little copyright reminder scared me off. I'll just jot it down for you instead... it's on the back of the book, anyway!

A wonderful woman
who lived in a shoe.
She had so many children,
she knew exactly what to do.
She held them, she rocked them,
and tucked them in bed.
"I love you, I love you,"
is what she said.

The book I mentioned above is GREAT for parents of little ones, but makes an awesome opportunity for eye contact, touch, and fun in the classroom, too. Children can sit facing each other and one child will rub their partner's hand deeply (which feels sooo good... the presenter sang this song to me, I'll never forget it) for the first 2 lines. Then they count the fingers on both hands for the next two and hold their hand, rock it, and put it against the receiving child's chest. The last two lines is a sweet, sweet hug. 

In my recording I showed you with Pete the Cat... I love that guy! :)
