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)

Storytime: Winter

Mittens on My Hand (Tune: Wheels on the Bus)
The mittens on my hands
Keep me warm,
Keep me warm,
Keep me warm,
The mittens on my hands
Keep me warm
All winter long

Repeat with:
The boots on my feet
The hat on my head

Snow on the Rooftop
This can be done with or without the music.
Snow on the rooftops (make pointed roof shape with arms)
Snow on the trees (hold arms up like tree branches)
Snow on the green grass (wave hands over the ground)
And snow on me! (point to self)

Snow on my mittens (hold up hands)
Snow on my nose (touch nose)
Snow on my head (touch head)
And snow on my toes (touch toes)

Twirling, swirling, whirling down
Down and down and down and down

10 Little Snowflakes (Tune: 10 Little Indians)
1 little, 2 little, 3 little snowflakes (count on fingers)
4 little, 5 little, 6 little snowflakes
7 little, 8 little, 9 little snowflakes
10 little snowflakes on my tongue! (stick out tongue)

Snowflakes Snowflakes
This is another song that can be done with or without the music.
Snowflakes, snowflakes dance around
Snowflakes, snowflakes touch the ground
Snowflakes landing on my nose
Snowflakes on my toes
Snowflakes, snowflakes dance around
Snowflakes, snowflakes touch the ground

Five Little Snowflakes

img_0850One little snowflake with nothing to do
Along came another and then there were two
Two little snowflakes laughing with me
Along came another and then there were three
Three little snowflakes looking for some more
Along came another and then there were four
Four little snowflakes dancing a jive
Along came another and then there were five
Five little snowflakes having so much fun
Out came the sun and then there were none!
