When I used to work in South Korea I was trying to come up with a new way to teach body parts to my kindergarten students. I decided to use the song "Head and Shoulders, Knees and Toes" but as they got better with their English I continued to add new verses. I started to use it with all age levels including adults & my students loved it. I took this song along to Thailand when I was teaching kindergarten in Bangkok and it caught on to be a favorite there as well.
Now that I have a child of my own I've been looking for a new way to use it and decided to make a picture book. I tried to take photos of my sons body parts but he moves around a lot and I mostly ended up cropping different pictures of him. I typed the words for each body part, printed them out and then cut them out with scissors. I cut construction paper in half and then had my son help me glue the pictures and words to the paper. Then I laminated and bound my new book.
K looking intently at his new favorite book:
We love singing the song together and giggling at the photos. He thinks its great that its a book about him and loves looking at the photos of himself. I really like that I have a photo album capturing lots of different memories and that we made it together.
