Gardens (Week of 7/1/17)

This week’s story time theme is gardens!

Opening Song:
We clap and sing hello!
We clap and sing hello!
With our friends at storytime
We clap and sing hello!
(We jump. We stomp.)

Hokey Pokey
Heads Shoulders Knees and Toes
Shake Your Sillies Out
Isty Bitsy Spider
The Freeze Game

 

Books:

Dig In! by Cindy Jenson-Elliott

Green Green: A Community Gardening Story by Marie Lamba

Game:

Rhythm Sticks Song (to the tune of Frere Jacques):
Tap your sticks. Tap your sticks.
One two three.
One two three.
Can you tap your sticks? Can you tap your sticks?
Just like me? Just like me?

I do it first so the kids know the tune, and then give them a simple rhythm to copy. After we did it a few times, I let the kids take turns making their own rhythm for others to copy.

Closing Song:
We clap and say goodbye
We clap and say goodbye
With our friends at storytime
We clap and say goodbye
