I used bells and we sang this song together when shaking the bells on the parts of our bodies that we sang about.

I’ve Got a Cat on my Knee (Tune of Skip to my Lou)

I’ve got a cat on my knee, I’ve got a cat on my knee, I’ve got a cat on my knee.  Meow, Meow, Meow, Meow, Meow, Meow.

2nd Verse: On my Foot 3rd Verse: On my Shoulder 4th Verse: On my Hand

I also used numbers so that all the kids could get a turn to bring something up to the board.

We then sang a song about Pete the Cat with instruments.  I changed up Jbrary’s version of Hey there____ you’re a real cool cat, to be just about Pete the Cat 🙂 It was a lot of fun.

Flannel-Little Cat, Little Cat .

This is a really fun interactive flannel where Little Cat is hidden and the kids chant with me, “Little Cat, Little Cat, Where are you?” Then guess where Little Cat is and say, ” Little Cat, Little

Cat, Are you in the Purple House?”IMG_0627

Five Little Kitties Jumping on the Bed-Song

Five little kitties jumping on the bed.  One fell off and bumped his head, mama called the doctor and the doctor said, ‘No more kitties jumping on the bed’.  4-3-2-1.  

 

I used this adorable set of 5 kitties in a cat bed and took one kitten out at a time during the song.
