Green Storytime

Storytime for 1 to 3 year olds:
  • Opening - Skinnamarink (from Car Songs: Songs to Sing Anywhere by Dennis Buck at Kimbo), Sticky Sticky Bubblegum
  • Book #1 – Little Green by Keith Baker
  • Stand-up Activity - Little Bird (action rhyme I first found in Toddle On Over by Robin Works Davis, but I have also seen it on a number of websites)
I saw a little bird go hop, hop, hop
I told the little bird to stop, stop, stop
(hold up hand, palm out)
I went to the window to say, "How do you do?"
He wagged his little tail and flew away
(make flying motion with arms)
  • Bridge - Open Shut Them (fingerplay)
Open, shut them
(open and close hands)
Open, shut them
Give a little clap (clap)
Open, shut them
Open, shut them
Put them in your lap
(put hands in lap)

Creep them, creep them
Under your chin
(creep fingers up chest)
Open your mouth, but don't put them in
(do as words say)

Open, shut them
Open, shut them
Give a little clap
Open shut them
Open shut them
Put them in your lap
  • Flannelboard/Math Activity -5 Green and Speckled Frogs (counting down song)
  • Sit-down Activity - Fee Fi Fo Fum (fingerplay)
Fee fi fo fum
See my fingers
(wiggle fingers)
See my thumbs
(wiggle thumbs)
Fee fi fo fum
Good-bye fingers
(put one hand behind back)
Good-bye thumbs
(put other hand behind back)
This little sheep eats grass.
This little sheep eats clover.
This little sheep drinks water.
This little sheep jumps away.
This little sheep does nothing at all, but lies around all day and sleep.
  • Closing - Popcorn Calling Me (scarf song found in Buzz Buzz by Laurie Berkner)
  • Craft – Chalk coloring on construction paper shamrocks
