Did you miss our What's Different? What's the Same? Storytime this week? Don't worry, here's what you missed, plus a few more suggestions so you can create your own storytime at home, complete with songs and stories.
Don't need a full storytime? Borrow a rhyme when you need a short distraction, or check out these materials and spend a few minutes reading together.
ANIMAL PRETENDING (from Sturgis Kids)
Can you hop like a rabbit?
Can you jump like a frog?
Can you moo like a cow?
Can you run like a dog?
Can you fly like a bird
Can you swim like a fish?
Then be still as a turtle?
And sit down like this.
ABRACADABRA PRETEND (from Sturgis Kids)
Abra-cadabra, Alaka-zoodles, when I say KAZAM, you'll all be poodles! KAZAM!
Abra-cadabra, Alaka-zephelants, when I say KAZAM, you’ll all be elephants! KAZAM!
Abra-cadabra, Alaka-znakes, when I say KAZAM, you’ll all be snakes! KAZAM!
Abra-cadabra, Alaka-zucklings, when I say KAZAM, you’ll all be ducklings! KAZAM!
Abra-cadabra, Alaka-zorses, when I say KAZAM, you’ll all be horses! KAZAM!
To get back to kid-form: Abra-cadabra, Alaka-zids, when I say KAPOW you'll turn back to kids!
I'M A LITTLE TEAPOT (jbrary)
I'm a little teapot, short and stout
Here is my handle, here is my spout
When I get all steamed up, here me shout
"Tip me over and pour me out!"
PARACHUTE SONG: Switcheroo Day by Brady Rymer
SUGGESTED ACTIVITY: Talk about different animals, or different things you can pretend to be. What sounds would you make? How would you move? Where would you live?
