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: Tune: I’m a Little Teapot

I’m a little kitty cat nice and sweet

Here are my whiskers

And here are my feet

When I go out hunting, mice beware

Or, you might just have a SCARE!! Boo!!

  

RhymeFive Little Kittens

Five little kittens standing in a row

They nod their heads to the children so

They run to the left, they run to the right

They stand up and stretch in the bright sunlight

Along comes a dog, who’s in for some fun

M-e-oooooow, see those kitten run!

 

 

Song: Song: Kitty Tune: Bingo

I know a cat with perky ears,

And kitty is her name-o.

K-I-T-T-Y, K-I-T-T-Y, K-I-T-T-Y

And Kitty is her name-o.

She makes a sound and it’s “meow,”

And Kitty is her name-o.

K-I-T-T-Y, K-I-T-T-Y, K-I-T-T-Y

And Kitty is her name-o.

 

Song: Hey Diddle Diddle

Hey, diddle, diddle, the cat and the fiddle
The cow jumped over the moon
The little dog laughed to see such fun
And the dish ran away with the spoon

 

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.
