All about Dogs Storytime!

Here’s a sweet storytime about dogs that your 3-5-year-old children will howl about!

Sing (To the tune of "If you’re happy and you know it")

If you want to hear a story, clap your hands
If you want to hear a story, clap your hands
If you want to hear a story, if you want to hear a story, if you want to hear a story, clap your hands.

More verses: Stomp your feet, spin around, do all three, sit right down.

FINGER PLAY: Five Little Puppies

Five little puppies were playing in the sun. (Hold up hand, fingers extended.)

This one saw a rabbit, and he began to run. (Bend first finger.)

This one saw a butterfly, and he began to race. (Bend second finger.)

This one saw a pussycat, and he began to chase. (Bend third finger.)

This one tried to catch his tail, and he went round & round. (Bend fourth finger.)

This one was so quiet, he never made a sound. (Bend thumb.)

Action Song: If You’re a Dog and You Know It (Tune: If You’re Happy and You Know It)

If you’re a dog and you know it bark like this, “Woof, Woof!”
If you’re a dog and you know it bark like this, “Woof, Woof!”
If you’re a dog and you know it and you really want to show it,
If you’re a dog and you know it bark like this, “Woof, Woof!”

If you’re a dog and you know it wag your tail, (wag your tail)
If you’re a dog and you know it wag your tail,
If you’re a dog and you know it wag your tail,
If you’re a dog and you know it and you really want to show it,
If you’re a dog and you know it wag your tail.
