Jump Around - Storytime May 1, 2013

We sat in a circle today! O joy! O goody! O great job, everyone! Our focus today was anything music and movement.

Hello, How are You? by Dr. Jean

Book: The Maestro Plays by Bill Martin, Jr.

Book & Song: All God's Critters, illustrated by Kadir Nelson along with Peter Paul and Mary's version on their CD "In These Times"

Song: Head & Shoulders Baby 1 2 3
(point to that part of body and clap your hands when you count)
Head and shoulders baby 1 2 3
Head and shoulders baby 1 2 3
Head and shoulders
Head and shoulders
Head and shoulders baby 1 2 3
Shoulders, waist
Waist, knees
Knees, toes
Eyes, ears
Nose, mouth
Round the world (make a circle with your hips)
Shoot the Stars (pretend to shoot stars)
Kick the bucket (kick your legs out)
That's all. (quiet and sit down)

Song: Clap Your Hands by They Might Be Giants on the CD Here Come the ABCs

Copycat Game with beanbags: We put our beanbags on various parts of our body, did different dance movies and actions, and held them quietly.

Chorale Reading: I Went Walking - Each child had their own copy of the book and we read along together. We are going to try doing this more and more :) It's all sorts of exciting. It was great seeing the adults reading along and the kids following directions and holding the books themselves.

(We ran out of time for What a Wonderful World illustrated by Ashley Bryan and Willie Nelson's version on his CD What a Wonderful World)

Then we sang our regular goodbye songs with bell shakers, maracas, and jingle bell shakers.

Next week will be all about insects!

We have TWO storytimes left until June.
