Firetruck 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 – Fire Fighter Piggywiggy by Chrisyan and Diane Fox
  • Stand-up Activity - I'm a Little Firefighter (action song to the tune of "I'm a Little Teapot" written by Carol Hopkins
I'm a little firefighter off I go
Here is my helmet
Here is my truck
When my clothes catch on fire I know what to do
I stop, drop, and roll to put the fire out
  • 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 
  • Closing - Use egg shakers to the song "I Know a Chicken" from Whaddaya Think of That? by Laurie Berkner
  • Craft – Use bingo paint dabbers to paint spots onto a fire dog picture
