Ways To Go Storytime

Storytime for 1-1/2 to 3 year olds:
  • Opening - Skinnamarink, Sticky Sticky Bubblegum
  • Book #1 – Ways To Go by Dana Meachen Rau, illustrated by Jane Conteh-Morgan
  • Activity – A Walking We Will Go (action song, an adaptation to "A-hunting We Will Go")
A walking we will go
A walking we will go
Hi ho the derry oh
A walking we will go
(do actions accordingly; do other actions words in place of walking)

A hopping...
A jumping...
A running...
A stomping...
A sitting...
  • Flannelboard - Hippopotamus on Skates (I got this one from King County Library System)
You see:
Wheels on a car,
And on a train,
Wheels on a truck,
And a jumbo plane.
You see:
Wheels on a van,
A bike, a bus,
But you don't see wheels on a hippopotamus...
***Parent enhancement: Songs have different notes for different syllables. This is one way we help children hear the parts of words... and it's fun too!
