Songs: Open Shut Them 

Open, shut them (Open both hands and then make a fist)
Open, shut them
Give a little clap, clap, clap. (Clap hands together)
Open, shut them
Open, shut them
lay them on your lap, lap, lap. (Pat hands in lap)
Creep them, creep them, creep them, creep them (creep fingers from tummy up to mouth)
 Right up to your chinny, chin, chin.

Open wide your little mouth… but do not let them in. (Open mouth wide & hide hands behind back)

 

Song: A Little Mouse is Creeping

A little mouse is creeping, creeping, creeping (Make creeping motion with hands)
A little mouse is creeping
In the house... Shh… (Put index finger in front of mouth)
A little mouse is sleeping, sleeping, sleeping (Make sleeping motion)
A litter mouse is sleeping in the house. Shh…
An old grey cat comes creeping, creeping, creeping (Make creeping motion with hands)
An old grey cat comes creeping in the house
 And they both run away!!! (Pat hands on lap really fast.)

Rhyme: Hey Diddle, Diddle

Hey diddle diddle,

The cat and the fiddle,

The cow jumped over the moon.

The little dog laughed to see such sport,

And the dish ran away with the spoon.

 

 

Song: Mr. Moon (See Reading Rena’s Moon Songs on Youtube)

Mr. Moon, Mr. Moon

You’re out too soon, the sun is still in the sky.

Go back into your bed and cover up your head

Until the day goes by.

(Repeat)

 

Song: Zoom, Zoom, Zoom

Zoom, zoom, zoom,

We’re going to the moon.

Zoom, zoom, zoom,

We’re going to the moon.

If you want to take a trip,

Climb aboard my rocket ship.

In 5, 4, 3, 2, 1…. Blast off!!!

Zoom, zoom, zoom,

We’re going to the moon.

Zoom, zoom, zoom,

We’re going to the moon.

If you want to take a trip,

Climb aboard my rocket ship.

In 5, 4, 3, 2, 1…. Blast off!!!

 

SongWe’re Going to the Moon (Tune: She’ll Be Coming Around the Mountain)

We’ll be orbiting around the moon, yes, we will! (Roll hands round and round.)

We’ll be orbiting around the moon, yes, we will! 

We’ll be orbiting around the moon. We’ll be orbiting around the moon.

We’ll be orbiting around the moon, yes, we will!

 

We’ll be landing on the moon, yes, we will! (Jumping action.)

We’ll be landing on the moon, yes, we will!

We’ll be landing on the moon. We’ll be landing on the moon.

We’ll be landing on the moon, yes, we will.

 

We’ll be walking on the moon, yes, we will! (Walk around.)

We’ll be walking on the moon, yes, we will!

We’ll be walking on the moon. We’ll be walling on the moon.

We’ll be walking on the moon, Yes, we will!

 

We’ll be blasting off again, yes, we will! (Blast off with big hand motion.)

We’ll be blasting off again, yes, we will!

We’ll be blasting off again. We’ll be blasting off again.

We’ll be blasting off again, yes, we will!

We’ll be landing back on Earth, yes, we will! (Clap hands.)

We’ll be landing back on Earth, yes, we will!

We’ll be landing back on Earth. We’ll be landing back on Earth.

We’ll be landing back on Earth, yes, we will!

 

 Song: If You’re Happy and You Know It

If you’re happy and you know it, clap your hands (clap, clap)
If you’re happy and you know it, clap your hands (clap, clap)
If you’re happy and you know and you really want to show it
 you’re happy and you know it, clap your hand. (clap, clap)

If you’re happy and you know it, pat your head (pat, pat)
If you’re happy and you know it, pat your head (pat, pat)
If you’re happy and you know it, and you really want to show it
 If you’re happy and you know it pat your head. (pat, pat)

(Continue with other actions: beep your nose, wiggle your ears, etc.)

Closing Song:

Now this is the end of storytime, storytime, storytime.
This is the end of storytime.
I’m glad you were here.
 I’m so glad you were here.
