Show n’ Tell:

Give the kids a chance to show something that they’ve brought to the group!

Game:

We have oversize dice that have numbers and commands on them.  The kids stood in a circle, and one by one rolled the dice.  Then they had to do the command the number of times on the die.  The commands were usually something silly like “bark like a dog” or “make a pffft sound with your tongue”.  It’s a fun game and it gives the kids a chance to practice their numbers and laugh.

Closing Song:

“Clap and Sing Goodbye!” (Tune: Farmer in the Dell)
We clap and sing Goodbye,
We clap and sing Goodbye,
With our friends at storytime,
We clap and sing Goodbye!
(Wave and sing Goodbye; stomp and sing Goodbye.)
