Cake

Rhyme Cube: Click here for description

Sign Language: Word of the day was “Cake

Opening Rhyme: “Open them, shut them…”

First Book: The Cake That Mack Ate by Rose RobartCake That Mack Ate

Song: “This is the way…”

This is the way we mix the batter, mix the batter, mix the batter
This is the way we mix the batter, when we bake a cake!

This is the way we spread the frosting, spread the frosting, spread the frosting
This is the way we spread the frosting, when we bake a cake!

This is the way we eat our piece, eat our piece, eat our piece
This is the way we eat our piece, when we bake a cake!

Felt Board: 5 Bright Birthday Candles

candlescandles out

(5 candles with flames
remove flames as we blow them out)

Five bright birthday candles and not one more,
The red one got blown out  (blow)
Then there were four.

Four bright birthday candles, pretty as can be,
The blue one got blown out (blow)
Then there were three.

Three bright birthday candles waiting for you,
The green one got blown out, (blow)
Then there were two.

Two bright birthday candles oh what fun,
The yellow one got blown out, (blow)
Then there was one.

Just one bright birthday candle standing oh so tall.
The purple one got blown out, (blow)
And that was all.

Second Book: Who Made This Cake? by Chihiro NakagawaWho Made This Cake?

(I was originally going to read Whopper Cake by Karma Wilson but I had a lot of very little ones in the group today so I went with this one instead.)

Song: “Patty Cake”

Patty cake patty cake,
Bakers man bake me some a cake as fast as you can.
Roll it pat it mark it with a “B”
And put it in the oven for baby and me

Felt Board:  Layer Cake

I ended up making this flannel board myself but I got the idea from one I found for sale on ebay.  I changed it up a little to suit my needs (I didn’t include flannel candles and numbered the layers differently).

Here are some pictures of what I did:

cake layers cake layers assembled

We started with the layers all mixed up.  I asked one child to come up, find layer number one, and bring it to me.  I then put the first layer on the wall.  I continued asking children to find the next layer until we had them all in the right order.  We stopped along the way to count up the layers and at the end I pointed out that the cake was taller than them!

(*since I had more kids than layers, we did this activity more than once to give all the kids a chance)

Third Book: If You Give a Cat a Cupcake by Laura Numeroff

Song:  “Mix the Batter”

Mix the batter, stir the batter
(make a stirring motion with one arm/hand)
Shake some flour in
(make a shaking motion with one arm/hand)
Mix the batter, stir the batter
(make a stirring motion with one arm/hand)
Place it in a tin
(pretend to pour)
Sprinkle in some raisins
(pretend to sprinkle)
Pop it in the oven
(open both hands, palms up, and slide them forward)
Open wide the oven door
(pretend to open door)
And out comes the cake!
(open both hands, palms up, and slide them forward)
