Lap Sit Week of 5/8/2017

Seventeen weeks flew by and it's already the end of our storytime session! I'm always a little sad to see storytime end- it means fewer kids each day and bunches of kids moving on to the next age group. This was a great week, though, and the kids graduating to the next group will definitely have a ton of fun! A crew of toddlers who are going through a hugging phase also took the sting out of the end of the session. Here's what we were up to this week-

If You’re Ready For a Story
If you’re ready for a story clap your hands (clap clap)
If you’re ready for a story clap your hands (clap clap)
If you’re ready for a story, if you’re ready for a story
If you’re ready for a story clap your hands (clap clap)
If you’re ready for a story stomp your feet (stomp stomp)
If you’re ready for a story stomp your feet (stomp stomp)
If you’re ready for a story, if you’re ready for a story
If you’re ready for a story stomp your feet (stomp stomp)
If you’re ready for a story wave hello
If you’re ready for a story wave hello
If you’re ready for a story, if you’re ready for a story
If you’re ready for a story wave hello

This Is Big Big Big
This is big big big, this is small small small
This is short short short, this is tall tall tall
This is fast fast fast, this is slow slow slow
This is yes yes yes, this is no no no

ABCs

Open/Shut Them
Open shut them, open shut them
Give a little clap clap clap
Open shut them, open shut them
Put them in your lap lap lap
Creep them crawl them, creep them crawl them
Right up to your chinny chin chin
Open wide your little mouth—but do not let them in!

Hippopotamus on a City Bus
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
Mooove over!
A sheep, a sheep, a sheep got on the bus
And all, and all, and all the people said
Move baaaack!

The Elevator Song
The city is great and the city is grand
There's a whole lot of people on a little piece of land
And we live way up on the 57th floor
So here's what we do when we go out the door
We take the elevator up, take the elevator down
We take the elevator up, take the elevator down
We take the elevator up, take the elevator down
And we turn around!

Grr Grr Went the Big Brown Bear
Grr grr went the big brown bear one day
Grr grr went the big brown bear
Grr grr went the big brown bear one day
And the bear went grr grr grr
But- we know bears go huggy huggy hug
Huggy huggy hug, huggy huggy hug
We know bears go huggy huggy hug
They don't go grr grr grr
Bloop bloop went the little blue fish one day
Bloop bloop went the little blue fish
Bloop bloop went the little blue fish one day
And the fish went bloop bloop bloop
But- we know fish go kissy kissy kiss
Kissy kissy kiss, kissy kissy kiss
We know fish go kissy kissy kiss
They don't go bloop bloop bloop

Roly Poly
Roly poly, roly poly
Out out out, out out out
Roly roly poly, roly roly poly
In in in, in in in
Roly poly, roly poly
Fast fast fast, fast fast fast
Roly roly poly, roly roly poly
Slow slow slow, slow slow slow

Wheels on the Bus
The wheels on the bus go round and round
Round and round, round and round
The wheels on the bus go round and round
All through the town
(Repeat with kids on the bus go up and down, grown-ups on the bus go shh shh shh, etc.)

Slowly, Slowly
Slowly, slowly very slowly creeps the garden snail
Slowly, slowly very slowly up the garden rail
Quickly, quickly very quickly runs the little mouse
Quickly, quickly very quickly to his little house

Bubbles in the Air
There are bubbles in the air, in the air
There are bubbles in the air, in the air
There are bubbles in the air, there are bubbles in the air
There are bubbles in the air, in the air
There are bubbles way up high, way up high
There are bubbles way up high, way up high
There are bubbles way up high, way up high in the sky
There are bubbles way up high, way up high
There are bubbles way down low, way down low
There are bubbles way down low, way down low
There are bubbles way down low, and they tickle on your toes
There are bubbles way down low, way down low

Bubbles

Goodbye Song
Storytime is over now, over now, over now
Storytime is over now—see you next time!
