Relaxing Flowers

Five little flowers standing in the sun (hold up five fingers)
See their heads nodding, bowing one by one? (bend fingers several times)
Down, down, down comes the gentle rain (raise hands, wiggle fingers and lower
arms to simulate falling rain) And the five little flowers lift their heads up again! (hold up five fingers)

Umbrellas Fingerplay

(Use fingers or make umbrella puppets)

Five umbrellas stood by the back door,
The red one went outside, then there were four.
Four umbrellas pretty as can be,
The blue one went outside, then there were three.
Three umbrellas with nothing to do,
The green one went outside, then there was one.
Just one umbrella alone in the hall,
The purple one went outside, and that was all!

Nine Little Flowers
To the tune of “Ten Little Indians”

One little, two little, three little flowers,
Four little, five little, six little flowers,
Seven little, eight little, nine little flowers,
Peeping through the ground.

Give them rain and lots of sunshine,
Give them rain and lots of sunshine,
Give them rain and lots of sunshine,
So they’ll grow up tall.

As they grow, they’ll bud and bloom,
As they grow, they’ll bud and bloom,
As they grow, they’ll bud and bloom,
In the lovely springtime.

Little Ducks Song

Sung to: “London Bridge”

Little ducks go quack, quack, quack
Quack, quack, quack,
Quack, quack, quack –
Little ducks go quack quack quack
In the springtime.

-Twinkle,Twinkle Little Star

Twinkle, twinkle little star
How I wonder what you are.
Up above the world so high,
Like a diamond in the sky.
Twinkle, twinkle little star,
How I wonder what you are.

Family Storytime – Spring! – Wednesday, March 19, 2014

I don’t think I have ever been this excited for Spring Storytime!  We NEED a little springtime – badly!  And springtime is a great time for play – there are lots of ideas pinned at Pinterest!

Our books this week:

  Wake Up, It’s Spring! (Lisa Campbell Ernst) – Everyone wakes up and gets ready to greet springtime.

  I See Spring (Charles Ghigna) – This books covers all the typical spring activities with rhyming text and colorful illustrations.

  Duck!  Rabbit!  (Amy Krouse Rosenthal) – It’s a duck with a long beak, right?  Or is it a rabbit with long ears?  Kids and adults will both enjoy seeing both a duck and a rabbit in this story.

Five Little Flowers (Fingerplay)

Five little flowers standing in the sun (hold up all 5 fingers)
See their heads nodding, bowing one by one (curl fingers)
Down, down, down comes the gentle rain (make fingers rain)
And the 5 little flowers lift up their heads again (hold up 5 fingers)

We are also having fun with a rewrite of “If You’re Happy and You Know It” but this time we’ll try to figure out if we are a DUCK or a RABBIT.

Duck/Rabbit song (If You’re Happy and You Know It)

If you’re a DUCK and you know it flap your wings.

If you’re a RABBIT and you know it wiggle your nose.

If you’re a DUCK and you know it quack out loud.

If you’re a RABBIT and you know it hop around.

We will end storytime with a quick craft – kids will be able to decorate their own Duck/Rabbit!
