Big Kids Storytime- Wild Animals

Hello Friends
Hello friends, hello friends
Hello friends- it's time to say hello!

Letter of the Week: E
The letter of the week is e e e, e e e, e e e
The letter of the week is e e e and it makes the sound ehhh
Words we thought of: Easter, egg, elephant, empty (and a whole bunch of made up phrases that started with egg like "egg robot")

ABCs

That's Not a Hippopotamus! by Juliette MacIver

*This was a huge hit. This Big Kids group is super observant and noticed the hiding hippo right away!

Hippopotamus on a City Bus
(from Jbrary)
A hip, a hip, a hippopotamus
Got on, got on, got on a city bus
And all, and all, and all the people said
You're squishing us!
A cow, a cow, a cow got on the bus
And all, and all, and all the people said
Mooooove over!
A sheep, a sheep, a sheep got on the bus
And all, and all, and all the people said move baaaaack!

Seals on the Bus
The seals on the bus go arp arp arp, arp arp arp, arp arp arp
The seals on the bus go arp arp arp, all day long
The snakes on the bus go hiss hiss hiss, hiss hiss hiss, hiss hiss hiss
The snakes on the bus go hiss hiss hiss, all day long
The lion on the bus goes roar roar roar, roar roar roar, roar roar roar
The lion on the bus goes roar roar roar, all day long
*we were going to end here but we ended up adding the wolves on the bus and the foxes on the bus...this was a common theme throughout storytime

I Dream of an Elephant by Ami Rubinger

Frogs, Frogs, Where are You Going?
Frogs, frogs where are you going?
We're going to town, to town
If they catch you what will they do?
They'll turn us all into [insert animal]!
*It felt like we did this chant ten times- kids kept coming up with animals! We also still had rhyming on the brain from reading I Dream of an Elephant, so we also talked about turning into stew. We decided that wasn't possible and turned back into people at the end.

My Little Rowboat
My little rowboat rowing round and round
Rowed past a little duck and it made this silly sound- quack quack!
(Repeat with as many other animals as you'd like. We added lions, foxes, and wolves.)

Goodbye Friends
Goodbye friends, goodbye friends
Goodbye friends- it's time to say goodbye!
