Felt Story:
Little, Big, Biggest

A little ball, a big ball, and the biggest ball I see,
Now help me count them, one, two, three!

A short tree, a tall tree, and the tallest tree I see,
Now help me count them, one, two, three!

Welcome, welcome everyone,
Now you’re here we’ll have some fun.

Opposite Movement Rhyme
This is big, big, big (stretch hands far to sides)
This is small, small, small (cup hands together)
This is short, short, short (hold palms close vertically)
This is tall, tall, tall (hold palms far apart vertically)
This is fast, fast, fast (roll hands quickly)
This is slow, slow, slow (roll hands slowly)
This is yes, yes, yes (nod head)
This is no, no, no (shake head)

If You’re Ready for a Story
If you’re ready for a story clap your hands.
If you’re ready for a story stomp your feet.
Clap your hands and stomp your feet.
Make your hands all nice and neat.
If you’re ready for a story take a seat.

Closing Song: Tickle the Clouds
Tickle the clouds
and tickle your toes
Clap your hands
and tickle your nose
Reach down low
And reach up high
Story time’s over —
Wave bye-bye!
