Now this is the time for storytime, storytime, 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 Bear Went Over the Mountain

The bear went over the mountain,
 
the bear went over the mountain,
 
the bear went over the mountain,
 
to see what she could see.
 
And all that she could see,
 
and all that she could see,
 
was the other side of the mountain,
 
the other side of the mountain,
 
the other side of the mountain,
 
was all that she could see.
 

 

Song: The Itsy-Bitsy Spider

The itsy bitsy spider

Went 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,

Went up the spout again.

 

 

Rhyme: Pat-a-Cake

Pat-a-cake, pat-a-cake, baker’s man

Bake me a cake as fast as you can.

Roll it,

And pat it,

And mark it with a B,

And put it in the oven

For baby and me.

 

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.
