Fish Storytime

Storytime for 1-1/2 to 3 year olds:
  • Opening - Skinnamarink, Sticky Sticky Bubblegum
  • Book #1 – Hooray for Fish by Lucy Cousins
  • Activity – ***We Dove In the Ocean (action song found in Ready-to-Go Storytimes: Fingerplays, Scripts, Patterns, Music and More by Gail Benton and Trisha Waichulaitis)
  • Flannelboard/Math Activity - One Little shell Laying on the Shore (counting rhyme I found in Mailbox Preschool magazine, August/September 2008, page 28)
  • Book #2 - Fish Wish by Bob Barner
  • Activity - Crabs Are Crawling (my notes do not say where I found this fingerplay to the tune of Frere Jacques)
Crabs are crawling, crabs are crawling
On the rocks, on the rocks
Watch out for their pinchers, watch out for their pinchers
Snap, snap, snap!
Snap, snap, snap!
  • Closing - Scarves using "Water, Wind and World" from The Second Line by Johnette Downing
  • Craft – Glue tissue paper square scales onto a fish drawing
***Parent Literacy Enhancement - Songs have different notes for different syllables. This is one way we help children hear the parts of words. And it's also fun!
