"Carla's Sandwich" by Debbie Herman


“This charming story presents a new way for young children to understand how to creatively embrace who they are, no matter what others think. Carla’s lunch box is filled with odd delights like the Olive, Pickle and Green Bean Sandwich, the Banana-Cottage-Cheese Delight, and the unforgettable Chopped Liver, Potato Chips, and Cucumber Combo. To Carla, they are delicious and creative lunches, but her teasing classmates are unconvinced and abandon her at the lunch table to eat her bizarre sandwiches alone. One day, however, tables turn when Buster—the worst tease of all—forgets his lunch on the day of the picnic and Carla thoughtfully offers him her extra sandwich. Her own spirited nature helps Carla teach her classmates that "unusual" can actually be good.”

BOUNCE RHYME (bounce along with child in lap)


Peanut Butter Song

First you spread the peanut butter

(bounce child in a circle)

Then you spread the jam

(bounce child in a circle the other way)

You put a slice of bread on top

(lift child up high)

And eat up all you can!


You take your sticky fingers

(tickle child’s fingers)

and you wipe them on your pants,

(tickle fingers on child’s knees)

And you do a little wiggle

for the peanut butter dance!

(bounce child in a dance)



ACTION RHYMES


Silly Sandwich

(Tune: “On Top of Old Smokey”)


I’m making a sandwich

with bread and some cheese.

(hold hands flat together)

I’m adding some pickles,

bananas, and peas.

(pretend to place items on palm of opposite hand)


My sandwich is silly,

but I like it so.

(rub belly)

I’m going to eat it,

Get set, here I go!

(pretend to bring a sandwich toward mouth with both hands)



I Eat

I eat apples- crunch, crunch, crunch!

I eat sandwiches- munch, munch, munch!

I eat lollipops- lick, lick, lick!

But I eat ice cream- quick, quick, quick!



Sandwich Song

(Tune: “If You’re Happy and You Know It”


If you want to eat a sandwich,

Nod your head.

If you want to eat a sandwich,

Nod your head.

If you like bread and cheese

Then just say, “Sandwich please!”

If you want to eat a sandwich,

Nod your head.


If you want to eat grilled cheese,

Stamp your feet.

If you want to eat grilled cheese,

Stamp your feet.

If you like melty cheese,

Then just say, “Grilled cheese please!”

If you want to eat grilled cheese,

Stamp your feet.


If you want to eat some veggies,

Clap your hands.

If you want to eat some veggies,

Clap your hands.

If you like beans and peas

Then just say, “Veggies please!”

If you want to eat some veggies,

Clap your hands.


Done with your sandwich?

If you want to eat some ice cream,

Give a scream.

If you want to eat some ice cream,

Give a scream.

If you’d like a quick brain freeze,

Then just say, “Ice cream please!”

If you want to eat some ice cream,

Give a scream.
