Riding Buses Storytime

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

  • Stand-up Activity – "Wheels On the Bus" action song from Six Little Ducks by Kimbo

  • 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 Yellow Buses (counting down rhyme I found at AnnesLibraryLife blog)

  • Activity – The Nice Friendly Bus Driver (not sure where I picked up this song sung to the tune of "The Noble Duke of York")
The nice, friendly bus driver,
He had a green bus
He drove it up a hill
And then he drove it down.
So, when you're up you're up!
And, when you're down you're down!
But when you're only halfway up,
You're neither up nor down.

(Repeat going faster)

  • Closing - Tambourines using the song "Clap Your Hands Clap Your Hearts" from Tickles and Tunes by Kathy Reid-Naiman
  • Art Experience – Bingo paint dabbers on bus drawings
