We did this unit last year in the primary intensive support classroom, using books like Caps for Sale, and The Napping House, and singing Head and Shoulders, Knees and Toes. This year we are adding more books, and more songs.

The Dark at the Top of the Stairs

The Dark at the Top of the Stairs

This book is about a mice family that lives at the bottom of a set of steep stairs. Papa mouse warns the children “DON’T go to see what is at the top of the stairs! There is a MONSTER up there!” Of course the children mice are curious, and they decide to go and look anyway. To find out what they see, you’ll have to read the book!

We also sang “The Itsy Bitsy Spider.” The spider starts at the BOTTOM of the spout, climbs up to the MIDDLE and then gets to the TOP! And then of course she gets washed down back to the bottom again.
