This week’s Evening Family Storytime theme: Construction!

Book: Raise the Roof! by Anastasia Suen, Elwood Smith

In this story, the family builds the house, and on the last page they are sleeping in the bed. I said, “They were so tired after building so much that they went right to sleep!” and one of my storytime kids exclaimed, “Without even brushing their teeth!” Adorable.

Action Rhyme: “Cranes”

Cranes reach up,
Cranes reach down,
Cranes reach out,
And all around.

Fingerplay: “Five Little Nails”

Five little nails, standing straight and steady
Here I come with my hammer ready!
Bam, bam, bam! That nail goes down.
Now there’s just four nails to pound.
(count down)

Song: “Johnny’s Hammers”

Johnny taps with 1 hammer, 1 hammer, 1 hammer; (right arm)
Johnny taps with 1 hammer, then he taps with 2.
Johnny taps with 2 hammers, 2 hammers, 2 hammers, (add left arm)
Johnny taps with 2 hammers, then he taps with 3.
Johnny taps with 3 hammers, 3 hammers, 3 hammers, (add right leg)
Johnny taps with 3 hammers, then he taps with 4.
Johnny taps with 4 hammers, 4 hammers, 4 hammers, (add left leg)
Johnny taps with 4 hammers, then he taps with 5.
Johnny taps with 5 hammers, 5 hammers, 5 hammers, (add head)
Johnny taps with 5 hammers, and then he stops!
