Story and Craft, September 11 – Bugs

Today at story time we made new friends, read stories about bugs and made our own little butterfly friends to take home.


Some Bugs by Angela DiTerlizzi and Brendan Wensel

Bow-Wow Bugs a Bug By Mark Newgarden & Megan Montague Cash

Caterpillar Dreams By Clive Mcfarland

Today we used colorful pipe cleaners and tissue paper to built little butterflies just like Henri became in Caterpillar Dreams.


The Ants Go Marching Two by Two

The ants came marching two by two, hurrah! hurrah!
The ants came marching two by two, hurrah! hurrah!
The ants came marching two by two
The little one stopped to tie his shoe.
They all go marching down in the ground and out of the rain,
Boom, Boom, Boom.

The ants came marching three by three…
The little one stopped to climb a tree.

The ants came marching four by four…
The little one stopped to shut the door….

The ants came marching five by five…
The little one stopped to take a dive….

… The ants came marching ten by ten
The little one stopped to say THE END!

Thanks For Visiting! Hope to see you all next week.

The more we get together, together, together.
The more we get together, the happier we’ll be.
For your friends are my friends.
And my friends are your friends.
The more we get together, the happier we’ll be.

Movement Rhyme: Stamp Your Feet

Stamp, stamp, stamp your feet,
Stamp them all around.
Stamp them loud, then stamp them soft,
Now don’t make a sound.

Clap, clap, clap your hands
Clap them all around.
Clap them loud, then clap them soft,
Now don’t make a sound.

Shaker Song: Popcorn
Pop! Pop! Pop!
Put the corn into the pot.
Pop! Pop! Pop!
Shake and shake it ’til it’s hot.
Pop! Pop! Pop!
Lift the lid and what have you got?
Pop! Pop! Pop! __________!

Movement Rhyme
Hands go up and hands go down.
I can turn myself around.
I can stand up on one shoe.
I can listen so can you.
Now lets sit I’ll show you how.
The next story is starting now.

Movement Rhyme: Wave Goodbye
Wave high, wave low,
I think it’s time, we gotta go.
Wave your elbows, wave your toes,
Wave your tongue and wave your nose.
Wave your knees, wave your lips,
Blow a kiss with fingertips.
Wave your chin, wave your eye,
Wave your hand and say “Goodbye!”

Finger Rhyme: Color Rhyme

If your clothes have any red,
Put your fingers on your head.
I your clothes have any blue,
Put your fingers on your shoe.
If your clothes have any green,
Wave your hand so that you’re seen.
If your clothes have any yellow
Smile like a happy fellow.
If your clothes have any brown,
Turn your smile into a frown.
If your clothes have any black,
Put your hands behind you back
And chores must be done.
If your clothes have any white,
Stomp your feet with all your might

Song: I See Rainbows (tune of Frere Jacques)

I see rainbows,
I see rainbows,
Way up high
In the sky.

They are red and orange,
Yellow, green and blue.
Purple, too.
What a view!

I see rainbows,
I see rainbows,
Way up high
In the sky.

They are made of sunshine,
Shining through the rain.
What a view
In skies so blue!
