Here is a special storytime I did at a local library. It started off with a short storytime in which I told the parents about the different skills their children will be practicing at the four art tables.
Opening - "Clap your Hands" from Toddler Action Songs by Cedarmont Kids
Book #1 - The Very Busy Spider by Eric Carle
Activity - Clippity Clippity Clop (action rhyme I adjusted from another rhyme I found many years ago)
Clippity, clippity clop,
The horses go clip clop.
They gallop to the right.
They gallop to the left.
They gallop all around...
And they come to a stop.
Clippity, clippity clop.
Transition - Open, Shut Them (well known fingerplay)
Book #2 - Charlie Chick: A Pop-up Book by Nick Denchfield and Ant Parker
Ending - "Very, Very Tall" from Wiggleworms Love You by Old Town School of Folk Music
