Opening Song:

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: The Itsy Bitsy Spider

The itsy bitsy spider climbed up the waterspout.
Down came the rain and washed the spider out.
Out came the sun, and dried up all the rain,
and the itsy bitsy spider climbed up the spout again.


Rhyme

Here is a beehive, but where are all the bees? (Hold hand in fist)

Hidden inside where nobody sees.

Watch and they’ll come out.

1,2,3,4,5   Buzzzzzzzzzzzzzz          (Open fingers one at the time then buzz them all around.)

 

Rhyme: Six Little Honeybees

Six little honeybees sitting on a hive
One flew away and then there were five.
Honeybees , honeybees fly away!
Honeybees , honeybees happy all day!
Five little honeybees flying near the door
One flew away and then there were four.
Honeybees , honeybees fly away!
Honeybees , honeybees happy all day!
Four little honeybees sitting in the tree
One flew away and then there were three.
Honeybees , honeybees fly away!
Honeybees , honeybees happy all day!
Three little honeybees looking at you
One flew away and then there were two.
Honeybees , honeybees fly away!
Honeybees , honeybees happy all day!
Two little honeybees sitting in the sun
One flew away and then there was one.
Honeybees , honeybees fly away!
Honeybees , honeybees happy all day!
One little honeybees left all alone
She flew away, safe to her home!
 

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.
