Group Time Games

During small group time today, Dawson suggested we sing one of his favorite songs- the "Sleeping" song! The children are always so excited to sing this song at group time because it is an interactive activity. One group of children gets go to "sleep", while the other sings the "sleeping" song. When in song is over,  they get to tickle one another to "wake" up. First the girls had a turn to go to sleep, then the boys, and last the teachers even had a chance to take a quick nap! This song is great for peer interactions, taking turns, and impulse control... It's harder than you think to wait until just the right time to wake someone up with a tickle!!!
