    Storytime Stretch
    Reach for the ceiling, touch the floor.
    Stand up again, let's do some more.
    Touch your shoulders, then your knees,
    Now your shoulders, like this, you see!
    Reach for the ceiling, touch the floor.
    Stand up. Sit down. There is no more.

    Craft—Friendship Balloons:

    Inspired by the balloon in A Sick Day for Amos Mcgee. Some children chose to write a message,
    but most simply had fun decorating with stickers, crayons, and glitter glue!

    The More We Get Together
    (Sung with sign language for key words)
    The more we get together, together, together.
    The more we get together, the happier we'll be.
    'Cause your friends are my friends and my friends are your friends.
    The more we get together, the happier we'll be.

    Everyone had a different interpretation...
