Dogs Theme UPDATED

Dogs Theme 

Show them the dog puppets ( if you have one) otherwise use clipart dogs see posted images throughout this post or real pictures of dogs-- The puppets can sit with them on the floor during storytime/ circle time if you want.  Ask if they know what animal they are? Next, what sound does a dog make? ( arf, woof, ) Ask How many of the kids have a pet dog? Do you help to take care of it? i,e. feed it, walk it. 
 Show the letter D either from a diecut machine or coloring sheet printable of a d is for dog (colored paper ones) ask if they have seen that letter before and what is it? Today we are going to share books all about Dogs!
