Storytime: Guess Who?

on October 12, 2013

This week I had my first outreach storytime. I went to a local daycare and did 25 minute storytimes for the 3’s class and for the 4’s class. It was so much fun and really made me miss working in a daycare! The theme was “Guess Who?” (which I used pretty loosely). I mostly did the same things for each class.

Songs/ Rhymes

Hello

If you’re happy and you know it clap your hands
If you’re happy and you know it clap your hands
If you’re happy and you know it
Then your face will surely show it
If you’re happy and you know it clap your hands

… stomp your feet… say hooray

If you’re ready for a story, take a seat
If you’re ready for a story, take a seat
Clap your hands and stomp your feet
Make your hands all nice and neat
If you’re ready for a story, take a seat

Animals

Can you hop like a rabbit?
Can you jump like a frog?
Can you walk like a duck?
Wag your tail like a dog?
Can you fly like a bird?
Can you swim like a fish?
Can you turn in a circle
And sit down like this?

Monkeys swinging, swinging all day.
Monkeys swinging, swinging all day.
Monkeys swinging, swinging all day.
Swinging, swinging ‘til I say,
“STOP!”

Eating, Scratching, Jumping

Closing

We’ve listened to stories
And sat with our friends,
But now we are finished
And it is the end.
