Today's song post is about a children's book called Rosie's Walk.
This book was written by Pat Hutchins.
I adore this book for it's simplicity, colorful illustrations and use of positional words.
Rosie's Walk is about a hen, named Rosie, and a fox, who is following Rosie around the farm all day. The students enjoy looking at the illustrations in this book as they show what happens to the fox as he follows Rosie all day. The positional words mentioned in this book are: on, across, around, over, past, through and under.
I incorporated this book in several music therapy sessions recently.
After singing through the book and showing the pictures, I added signs for the positional words mentioned in the story. The students loved this story. They were curious to see if the fox would catch Rosie and many of them predicted at the beginning of the story that the fox "would eat Rosie". You'll have to check this book out to find out what really happens. :)
As always, thanks for stopping by. Stay tuned for more posts!
