My Body Parts Storytime

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

  • Book #1 – Here Are My Hands by Bill Martin Jr. and John Archambault, illustrated by Ted Rand

  • Stand-up Activity – Head, Shoulders, Knees, and Toes (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 - How Many Feet?
Birds have two
Dogs have four
Beetles have six
Spiders have eight
That's quite a lot more than me because I only have two feet!

  • Activity – I Have Ten Little Fingers (traditional fingerplay)
I have 10 little fingers
They all belong to me!
I can make them do things
Would you like to see?
I can close them up tight
I can open them up wide
I can raise them up high
I can put them at my side
I can wave them to and fro
And I can fold them - just like so.

  • Closing - Scarves to the song "Popcorn Calling Me" from Buzz Buzz by Laurie Berkner

  • Art Experience – Glue sewing trim pieces onto a body cut-out
