Book: Raise the Roof by Anastasia Suen (fiction with non-fiction elements: sequence of building a house; extend vocabulary – asking children who puts in the pipes? “plumber”, what are wires for? “electricity” etc.) (Alt: If I Built a House by Chris Van Doren (great if kids are old enough), Jack’s House by Karen Magnuson Beil  (cute story but repetition somewhat tedious) or I Can Build a House by Shigeo Watanabe (young))

Song: New House (Tune: London Bridge)

Let’s all build a brand new house,
Brand new house, brand new house,
Let’s all build a brand new house,
Let’s get started!

First we’ll dig a great big hole…
Let’s keep going!

Then we’ll put in walls and floors…
Let’s keep going!

Now it’s time to raise the roof…
Let’s keep going!

Then put out the welcome mat…
We’ll have a party!

“Here’s a story of mouse looking for a house of her own…”
Flannel: Mouse House  (concepts: colors & shapes) (mouse finger puppet, flannel shapes script here: http://carolsimonlevin.blogspot.com/2014/02/pre-school-storytime-mousing-around.html)

Fingerplay: Quiet Mouse
Once there lived a quiet mouse   (hold out fist with index finger extended)
In a quiet little house.  (insert index finger into other fist)
When all was quiet as can be
Out Popped He!! (throw arms and hands apart)
