It’s taken me a while to get around to posting my storytimes so I’m going to play catch-up over the next few days! This fall, I’m back to doing my weekly evening family storytime. Participants sign up for a 6 week session. For the first time ever, I’ve decided to go theme-less (I’ll write a post about this eventually). Instead, I’m just doing any books or rhymes that suit my fancy. I’m using the same Hello and Goodbye songs that I’ve always used. This was my first storytime of the new session:
Rhyme: Hickety-Pickety Bumble Bee
Hickety-Pickety Bumble Bee
Won’t you say your name for me?
Let’s clap and say it.
Miss-Jen-na (clap with syllables)
Let’s say it loud!
Let’s say it quiet.
-Go around and do this will all the kid’s names
Book: The Watermelon Seed by Greg Pizzoli
When I stretch up, I feel so tall.
When I bend down, I feel so small.
Taller, taller, taller, taller.
Smaller, smaller, smaller, smaller.
Into a tiny ball.
Flannel: The Enormous Turnip
Song: “The Freeze” from Kids in Motion by Greg & Steve
Book: Hug Machine by Scott Campell
Song: Five green and speckled frogs
Five green and speckled frogs
Sat on a speckled log
Eating the most delicious bugs – Yum, yum!
One jumped into the pool
Where it was nice and cool
Then there were four green speckled frogs.
