4/6/2014 8:30:41Storytime activity rhymeRhyme with music and actionSong, Rhyme, MovementPreschoolFor preschool, I like a rhyme called "If You're Wearing Red Today", which I sing (more or less) to the tune of "Mary Had a Little Lamb":

"If you're wearing red today, red today, red today,
If you're wearing red today, jump up and say hooray. Hooray!"

OR, Elizabeth said - if you're wearing your cheeks, your smiles, your hair...
We start this one sitting down, and then kids who are wearing red get to jump up. I ask the kids for suggestions - wearing different articles of clothing, or different colors. I like to begin and end on one that everyone can do (shoes, or a shirt), because on some repetitions, kids don't get to jump up (though I try to make sure that if a kid couldn't jump up one time, he or she will be able to the next time.)Allison Angell

You put the popcorn in and you start to grin
Sizzle sizzle sizzle sizzle sizzle sizzle sizzle sizzle sizzle sizzle sizzle sizzle POP!"

On the sizzles, I bounce the baby on my knee, and on "POP!", bounce the baby up high.Allison Angell

But he shook his little tail (bend at the waist and shake your "tail")
and away he flew!" (flap your arms)
Follow actions as described above. Allison Angell

4/7/2014 21:06:14Baby Put Your Undies OnRhyme, Felt BoardToddler, PreschoolTune: Mama's Little Baby Loves Shortnin' Bread

Baby put your undies on, undies on, undies on,
Baby put your undies on, 1, 2, 3. (x 2)

Baby put your shirt on, shirt on, shirt on,
Baby put your shirt on, 1, 2, 3. (x 2)

Repeat with other articles of clothing, in the order you get dressed (undies, shirt, socks, pants, sweater, boots, jacket, hat). Getting dressed, I sing each verse twice. This gives the kids time to really hear it.

Now that you're all dressed, all dressed, all dressed,
Now that you're all dressed, let's go play.

Sing in reverse order for undressing - this time, sing each verse just once, as most people get the idea, and they're happy to go faster now.

Baby take your hat off, hat off, hat off,
Baby take your hat off, 1, 2, 3. (etc.)

Now that you're naked, naked, naked,
Now that you're naked, take a bath!
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ueTt6oNlu0YI do this as a felt board; You need a nude baby, all the articles of clothing, and a bathtub, for the end.

If you make a wolf the same size as the baby, then you can use the same clothes to sing Let's Play in the Forest When the Wolf is Not Around.

4/8/2014 12:22:56Little Red HouseFlannelboard story of nested houses and (spoiler alert!) a teddy bearFlannelboard storyToddler, PreschoolOnce upon a time there was a little red house,
And inside that little red house there was...
A little blue house!
And inside that little blue house there was...
A little yellow house!
(continue to the smallest house)
And inside that little white house there was...
A teddy bear! Who goes kiss kiss kiss kiss kiss kiss kiss! Can also be done with Wolf instead of baby, with the book "Let's go play in the forest..." Or can be done without singining and putting socks on hands, so the kids say, "no, that's wrong!" etc. Erica does it starting with the big house on the felt board and adds the smaller houses. Can also be done in Spanish easily. Lauren knocks on the house and builds suspense before removing the color to see what's underneath.

4/9/2014 15:33:01The STOP game!Child does an activity and then understands the meaning of STOP when the word is said.MovementToddler, Preschool, School AgeClap, clap, clap your hands,
Clap your hands together!
Clap, clap, clap your hands,
Clap your hands... now STOP!

Tap, tap, tap your shoulders ......

March, march, march your feet......

Jump, jump, jump up high....

This activity helps a child understand that when she hears the word STOP, it means that she has to freeze in place. Every parent understands the importance of this fun but necessary "game". Armin

4/9/2014 15:55:06Mousey BrownThis can be used as a tickle, or to reinforce members of the family and their activitiesFinger PlayPreschool, School AgeUp the tall white candle stick climbed little Mousy Brown. (climb fingers up arm)
Clear up to the very top, but she couldn’t get down.
So, she called for her Grandma. “Grandma!” (encourage children to call out)
But her Grandma was in town.
So, she curled up into a little ball,
And she rolled all the way down.(roll arms)

Up the tall white candle stick climbed little Mousy Brown. (climb fingers up arm)
Clear up to the very top, but she couldn’t get down.
So, she called for her big brother. “Big Brother!" (or can personalize by using child's family)
But her big brother was making a cake. (sister can be at Karate, dad can be cooking dinner, mother can be repairing the car)
So, she curled up into a little ball,
And she rolled all the way down.
You can personalise this little fingerplay to the child's family, or you can use generic words like Grandma, Sister, Cousin. Kids love to call out their family's names.

Use the activity that the family member is doing to combat stereotypes ... mum can be at school or at Karate class, big brother can be cooking or gardening, dad can be knitting a sweater or doing the laundry. Ask the child to present other activities that go on in the house.

I am sorry I did not put this information on my previous email. Our broadband is out of order and I am going bats.

Nevertheless I took a really good online class from Katie Scherrer through libraryjuiceacademy.com. She also has a blog, es divertido hablar dos idiomas. Last month she announced that she is retiring from the blog but the blog is still there with tons of useful bilingual books and activities for Storytime. I am happy to share url's and other resources from the class as soon as my PC is back online.

It gives the lyrics and instructions on what to do with the thumbs. It's kind of a lengthy fingerplay, but it repeats, so it's great for the kids - both preschoolers and toddlers. I also used to do this with two 3 year-olds- that I would babysit.Kris Waller

4/10/2014 12:32:09Baby in Bed finger play Kids sing about what a baby needs to fall asleep after waking up cryingSong, Finger PlayToddler, PreschoolNow's the time to go to bed
Put the baby in the bed
Cover the baby in the bed
And kiss the baby goodnight
"Now's the time to go to bed...."
Tell kids to make a bed with one flat open hand.

Use your pointer finger on opposite hand as a baby.

"Put the baby in the bed...."
Place pointer finger "baby" into the bed.

"Cover the baby in the bed...."
close fingers around baby.

"And kiss the baby goodnight."
Bring bed. & baby up to your lips & kiss the baby.

Then start crying loudly! Pull "baby" out of bed wailing & sobbing, "Oh No! The baby woke up...." then ask the kids what the baby needs to fall back asleep. The kids will call things out & you can all try them together, the baby continues to wake up. & cry as long as you want to keep it going, keep adding each thing in a longer list with a kiss at the end each time. Pause at the end of each suggestion after you try it to see if the baby is really asleep. At the very end I very quietly say that I think it worked, whatever the last suggestion was , I whisper that I think the baby is asleep & rock my hands back. & forth like a cradle, telling the kids what good mamas. & papas they all are.

These little fingers go wiggle, wiggle, wiggle.
Wiggle, wiggle, wiggle.
Wiggle, wiggle, wiggle.
These little fingers go wiggle, wiggle, wiggle,
and now they're on my nose! (eyes, belly button, toes, etc)
Good for helping identify body parts, both to teach babies and toddlers, and to reinforce what preschoolers already know. I always mention to parents that this is a fun game to play while waiting for a table at a restaurant, in line at the bank, etc. Melissa Morwood

Shake, shake, shake our sillies out
Shake, shake, shake our sillies out
And wiggle our waggles away

We're gonna jump our jiggles out
We're gonna clap our crazies out
This is a Raffi song- available in his "Singable Songs Collection" set, as well as in picture book form.
It's pretty common, and I'm sure most people know it already. But I thought I'd share it because my storytime attendees really look forward to doing this each week. We do it smack in the middle of storytime, and it really helps them keep their focus during the second half.

4/10/2014 19:10:03Here is the NoseRhymeRhyme, MovementPreschoolHere is the nose that smelled something sweet,
And led the search for a bite to eat.
Here are the feet that followed the nose
Around the kitchen on ten tiptoes.
Here are the eyes that looked high and low
"Till they found six pies sitting all in a row.
Here are the arms that reached up high
To bring down a fresh-baked blueberry pie.
Here is the mouth that opened up wide,
Here are the hands that put pie inside,
Here is the tongue that licked the tin
And lapped up the juice as it ran down the chin.
Here is the stomach that growled for more,
Here are the legs that ran for the door.
Here are the ears that heard a whack,
Here is the bottom that felt a smack.

Source: "Catch Me & Kiss Me & Say It Again" by Wendy Watson
I usually start out fairly slowly on this and speed it up as it goes along. The described motions accompany each body movement. Give yourself a good "Whack" on your bottom at the end!

4/10/2014 19:28:58The Big Fish Got Away!Japanese drawing story ("Ekaki Uta")drawing storyPreschool, School AgeOnce there was a small mountain.

At the eastern foot of the mountain were three houses.

In the houses lived some farmers.

In spring they planted a garden.

They planted three rows of radishes.

In the other direction they planted three rows of lettuces.

To the west of the garden were two ponds -

A round one -

And a oval one.

Oh! The pond is overflowing!

The big fish got away!
https://drive.google.com/#folders/0B528gjxKYDpBMjF4QWl0R1pGaGsEach line of the story is illustrated (on a white board, black board, flip chart, etc.) and as the lines are added they slowly accumulate to make a drawing of a fish. The URL above goes to a document I created to share this story and others like it with storytellers at the Asian Art Museum. This document shows the final pictures. The source I used is Anne Pellowkis's book, "Drawing Stories from Around the World and a Sampling of European Handkerchief Stories." While drawing stories are found in many cultures, the ones I selected for the document were all from Asian countries. Elizabeth Overmyer
