Apple Picking Storytime

Storytime for 1-1/2 to 3 year olds:
  • Opening - Skinnamarink, Sticky Sticky Bubblegum

  • Stand-up Activity – "I'm a Little Teapot" from This Little Piggy by Adam Stemple, et al (action song)

  • 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 - Five Red Apples (counting down chant written by Carol Hopkins)
5 red apples hanging on the tree
5 red apples, big and round and shiny
Along came a child with a hungry, grumbly tummy
And picked an apple right out of the tree
(continue counting down to zero apples)

  • Activity – Four Red Apples (fingerplay to the tune of "This Old Man")
4 red apples, on the tree
2 for you and 2 for me
So-o shake that tree and watch them fall
1, 2, 3, 4, that is all

  • Closing - Tambourines using the music "I Really Love to Dance" fromBuzz Buzz by Laurie Berkner

  • Art Experience – Use bingo paint dabbers to create designer apple colors on an apple drawing
