Terrific Twos Storytime- Community Helpers

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!

Kitty Cat, Kitty Cat felt game
*I don't have a photo of this game, but a coworker of mine made several felt hats (cowboy, police, chef, fire fighter, etc.) and I hid a small felt cat under one. We then tried to find which hat the cat was wearing/which job she was doing à la "Little Mouse, Little Mouse"
Kitty cat, kitty cat
Are you under the [cowboy] hat?

Stop Says the Red Light
Stop says the red light
Go says the green
Wait just a minute now says yellow in between
(learned from Jbrary's YouTube page)

Red Light/Green Light
*I made a paper traffic light and we played "red light, green light". It was too muddy to play outside, so we ran in place and froze for red lights and ran in slow motion for yellow. It was still lots of fun.

Police Officer, Police Officer, Who Do You See?
*Also no picture for this one, but I used some clipart of different community helpers I found online and one by one we guessed who each one was.
Police officer, police officer, who do you see?
I see a firefighter looking at me!
Firefighter, firefighter, who do you see?
I see a chef looking at me!
And so on until the helpers were gone

Have You Ever Seen a Firetruck?
*each child got a differently colored firetruck and brought it up when their color was called
Have you ever seen a firetruck, a firetruck, a firetruck?
Have you ever seen a firetruck with colors like these?

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

*We didn't quite make it to every book and activity this week, but in case they're helpful, I've included everything that was planned
