Music Notes: Ten in the Bed (Song Activity)

I love singing and more than that I love finding fun activities that go along with songs.  I taught Kindergarten for 12 years and I'm just starting to try to remember all the fun things I used to do with my students.  My little guy is somewhat reluctant to do these activities with me.  He has his own agenda, but once I get him interested, it's hard to tear him away.

I read a book called "Ten in the Bed."  There is also a song by that title on Toddler Favorites.  So I had Shrade gather up 10 stuffed animals and put them on the edge of the couch.  During the song one animal falls off the bed as they all roll over.  "There were 10 in the bed and the little one said, 'roll over, roll over,' so they all rolled over and one fell out."  At the part where the animal falls out I had Shrade throw an animal out.  That was fun!

So have some fun today with Ten in the Bed!
