Books

To Market, To Market by Anne Miranda
Bee-Bim Bop! by Linda Sue Park
How Do Dinosaurs Eat Their Food? by Jane Yolen

Recorded Music
“The Sneezing Song” by Jim Gill

Songs, Rhymes & Fingerplays

Welcome Song 
(We sing this song using ASL sign language)
Hello friends, hello friends, hello friends,
It’s time, to say, hello.

Shirt Song
Every child is invited to come up and choose a felt shirt to put on our felt board. While they do this, we will sing this song:

[Name] has a [color] shirt, a [color] shirt, a [color] shirt,
[name] has a [color] shirt, and she’s/he’s here today!

Scarf Song
Everybody will get a scarf to dance around to this song. We repeat the song a couple of times hiding the scarves in various locations (behind our backs, under our carpet circles, wherever the child wants to hide it).

One bright scarf waiting for the wind to blow.
Wiggle it high and wiggle it low,
Shake it fast and shake it slow.
Where did it go?

Ending Song
It’s time to say goodbye to our friends (clap, clap)
It’s time to say goodbye to our friends (clap, clap)
Storytime is done today,
So come again another day
It’s time to say goodbye to our friends (clap clap)

Playtime
This week I set out kinetic sand, building blocks, balance beam, and a parachute.

Rhyme

We have Ice Cream the best in Town
Let us Begin with Chocolate Brown

Now, let us scoop up some bubble gum pink
It’s sweet and yummy, the best some think.

Here is ice cream minty and green,
It is the creamiest I have ever seen.

Yellow ice cream is lemony and tart,
We like its taste from the very start.

Scoops of blueberry would make my day,
Look at all this ice cream, hip, hip hurray.

Red ice cream is a strawberry delight,
All these scoops are a heavenly sight.

Vanilla white is a popular flavor,
It tastes very good to an ice-cream craver.

Purple ice cream really gives me a kick,
Good and yummy till the very last lick.

Ice cream, ice cream, what a cool sensation,
We love ice cream in any combination!

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

Songs & Rhymes

Rhymes:

Little Jack Horner
Sat in a corner
Eating a fresh-baked pie
He put in his thumb
And pulled out a plum,
And said, “What a good boy am I!”

I eat my peas with honey.
I’ve done it all my life.
It makes the peas taste funny,
But it keeps them on the knife.

If all the world were apple pie,
And all the sea were ink,
And all the trees were bread and cheese,
What should we have to drink?

Song:

Tune: Skip to my Lou

Pop a little pancake into the pan,
Pop a little pancake into the pan,
Pop a little pancake into the pan,
That’s for my dinner today!

Shake on some sugar with a shake, shake, shake
Shake on some sugar with a shake, shake, shake
Shake on some sugar with a shake, shake, shake
That’s for my dinner today!

Drop on some honey with a drip, drip, drip,
Drop on some honey with a drip, drip, drip,
Drop on some honey with a drip, drip, drip,
That’s for my dinner today!
