Storytime: Spring

Books:
“Spring is Here” by Will Hillenbrand
“Mouse’s First Spring” by Lauren Thompson
“Cold Little Duck, Duck, Duck” by Lisa Westberg Peters

Little Bear
Tune: Frere Jacque
(ask children and parents to repeat after you)
(this is a great song to do with a bear puppet!)

Are you sleepy, are you sleepy (yawn)
Little bear, little bear
Wintertime is coming, wintertime is coming
Very soon, very soon

Find a cave, find a cave (shade eyes and look around)
Little bear, little bear
Wintertime is here, wintertime is here
Go to sleep, go to sleep (put head on hands)

Are you sleepy, are you sleepy
Little bear, little bear
You wake in the spring, you wake in the spring
Little bear, little bear

Time to wake up, time to wake up (stretch)
Little bear, little bear
Springtime is here, springtime is here
Wake up now, wake up now

In the Spring
Tune: Mary Had a Little Lamb

Sway your arms in the spring, in the spring, in the spring
Sway your arms in the spring, a happy time of year

repeat with:
wiggle your toes
shrug your shoulders
stomp your feet

During the Spring
During the spring it often showers (flutter fingers down)
Or the sun shines for many hours (circle arms overhead)
And both are good for the flowers (cup hands and extend them up)

Ten Little Flowers
Tune: Ten Little Indians

1 little, 2 little, 3 little flowers (count on fingers)
4 little, 5 little, 6 little flowers
7 little, 8 little, 9 little flowers
10 flowers in the spring

Give them rain and lots of sunshine (wiggle fingers down and circle arms overhead)
Give them rain and lots of sunshine
Give them rain and lots of sunshine
So they’ll grow up tall! (reach arms up)

Five Little Ducks

Five little ducks went out one day
Over the hills and far away
Mother duck said “quack, quack, quack, quack”
But only four little ducks came back

(count down)
