Five Spare Minutes: G
Gather enough white and/or black sock gloves so that each student can wear a pair. They are inexpensive to buy, magical to wear, and simple for the teacher to bring home and wash each weekend. The gloves are great for copying hand motions, doing finger plays, or enacting simple pantomimed stories. We learned a song in sign language and performed it with white gloves on for our parents at a Kindergarten Program.
(Teaching, learning, giggling about, or illustrating a song is also a fun way to spend five minutes! The suggested tune for each of these ABC songs is the familiar tune, Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star. Enjoy!)
Grape and get and goose and grow,
Say “giddy up!” your horse will go;
Grandmas, Grandpas giggle, too,
Giant grapefruit, good for you.
"G" words, they are fun to learn
Now you find one, it's your turn!
