Now this is the time for storytime, storytime, storytime.

This is the time for storytime,

I’m glad you are here, I’m so glad you are here.

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.)

Song: Birdies in the Treetops 

Birdies in the Treetops sing their song.

Froggies in the pond croak all along.

The sheep baa, baa and the cows moo, moo,

So why shouldn’t I why shouldn’t I sing along too?

 

Song: Moving, Grooving!

Moving, grooving!

Animals are moving.

Moving grooving

In lots of different ways!

Flamingos flap their wings and fly,

Crocodiles like to slip and slide.

Beetles crawl.

Green frogs hop.

Fishes swim.

Giraffes trot.

Ohhhhh!!!!

Moving, grooving!

Animals are moving.

Moving, grooving

In lots of different ways!

 

RhymePat-a-Cake

Pat-a-cake, pat-a-cake, baker’s man

Bake me a cake as fast as you can.

Roll it,

And pat it,

And mark it with a B,

And put it in the oven

For baby and me.

 

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.
