Space Storytime

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

  • Stand-up Activity – Stars Around the Rocketship (to the tune of "Ring Around the Rosie" written by Carol Hopkins)
Spinning around the rocket ship
Dancing little stars
Jumping, jumping
The stars fall down

  • 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 - Four Little Stars (a counting down rhyme I found on the internet a few years back)

  • Activity – Five Little Astronauts (fingerplay I adapted from one called "Five Little Aliens")
(Hold up fingers of one hand)
One, two, three, four, five
Five little astronauts standing in a row
They nod their heads to the children just so
They run to the left
They run to the right
They stand and stretch in the bright starlight

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

  • Art Experience – White chalk coloring on black construction paper
