Flying Airplanes Storytime

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

  • 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 

Directions: On the board place five hangers with the airplane under one hanger. Say the rhyme and then have the children guess which building the airplane is under.

My airplane is in its home.
The hanger is its home.
Hi, ho, the derry-o,
Which hanger is it in?

  • Book #2 – Flying by Donald Crews

  • Activity – The Airplane (action song I have found in many places)
The airplane has great big wings
Its propeller spins around and sings -- Vvvvvrrrruuuummmm!
The airplane goes up
The airplane goes down
The airplane flies high
All over the town

  • Closing - Scarves using the song "Flitter Flutter" from The Second Line by Johnette Downing 

  • Art Experience – Stickers on paper airplanes
