Preschool Storytime: Fractured Fairytales


Fingerplay- Five Little Fairies (Tune of Five Little Monkeys)

Five little fairies playing by the pond,

One fell in and lost her wand.

Mama called the wizard who did respond,

“No more fairies playing by the pond!”

Four little fairies playing by the pond,

One fell in and lost her wand.

Mama called the wizard who did respond,

“No more fairies playing by the pond!”

Three little fairies playing by the pond,

One fell in and lost her wand.

Mama called the wizard who did respond,

“No more fairies playing by the pond!”

Two little fairies playing by the pond,

One fell in and lost her wand.

Mama called the wizard who did respond,

“No more fairies playing by the pond!”

One little fairy playing by the pond,

She fell in and lost her wand.

Mama called the wizard who did respond,

“No more fairies playing by the pond!”

Five little fairies sitting by the pond,

Now they have a special bond,

The wizard’s lesson finally dawned,

How NOT to lose their magic wands!

Rhyming Song: Fairy Tales (Tune of Jingle Bells)

Once upon a time,

In a land far, far away

A girl kissed a frog,

And that just made his day!


Far across the town,

Red riding Hood took fright,

She found a wolf in Granny’s bed

When she told her goodnight!


Fairy Tales! Fairy Tales!

Read them every day!

Oh, what fun it is to hear

How Goldilocks got away!


Fairy Tales! Fairy Tales!

Full of joy and laughter!

Do you know how this one ends?

Why, it’s HAPPILY EVER AFTER!
