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.)

Rhyme: Warm Kitten

Warm Kitten, soft kitten

Little ball of fur,

Sleepy kitten, happy kitten

Purr, purr, purr!


Song: I’m a Little Kitten (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, mouse beware

Or, you might just have a scare!!


Rhyme: One Little Kitten

One little kitten with a tiny mew,

Called for another, and then there were two.

Two little kittens, climbing up a tree,

Called for another, and then there were three.

Three little kittens racing around the floor,

Called for a friend, ad then there were four.

Four little kittens, frisky and alive,

Called for a friend, and then there were five.

A puppy comes along, hoping for some fun,

And all the little kittens run, run, run!


Song: Kitty (Tune: Bingo)

I have a cat, she’s very shy

But she comes when I call Kitty.

K I T T Y

K I T T Y

K I T T Y

She comes when I call Kitty.


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.
