We have a weekly Saturday morning all-ages drop-in storytime. My co-workers and I rotate who leads it. Last time it was my turn, my theme was “Jungle!”
Rhymes & Songs:
Five Little Monkeys
(done in sign language)
Five little monkeys
Sitting in a tree
Teasing Mr. Alligator,
“Can’t catch me!”
Along comes Mr. Alligator
Jaws open wide
Goes another monkey
If You’re a Lion and You Know It
(tune: If You’re Happy and You Know It)
If you’re an elephant and you know it, STOMP your feet
If you’re a monkey and you know it, JUMP up and down (ooh ooh aah aah)
If you’re a crocodile and you know it, SNAP your jaws (motion with arms)
If you’re a lion and you know it, give a ROAR!
Animal Action 1
Greg and Steve’s “Kids in Motion”
Let’s hear you roar like a lion!
Let’s see you jump like a frog!
Let’s see you snap your jaws like a crocodile!
Let’s hear you howl like a dog!
Pretend you’re an elephant with a big, looooong, truck.
Pretend you’re a monkey. Let’s see you jump, jump, jump!
And now you’re a mouse. Just let me see
How very, very quiet you can be.
