I haven't done this story time in three weeks. It's so good to be back!
Opening Song: Hello, how are you?
There is no greater feeling than sitting in a room and leading a group of people in song - especially people who want to be there, and clearly love it.
Rhyme: This is Big, Big, Big (twice)
Rhyme: Dance Your Fingers (twice)The Little Red Hen by Byron Barton (1993)I don't even like this story that much, but I love this version. I especially love that the illustrations show the three lazy animals - the pig, the cat, and the duck - doing other fun activities instead of helping out.
Song: I'm a Little Teapot
Song: Head and Shoulders
Song: Mary Had a Little Lamb
Potato Joe by Keith Baker (2008)
I always get strange reactions when I read this book. I love Watermelon Moe, but I think some people think the whole thing is too bizarre.
Song: You Are My Sunshine
Song: Tommy Thumb
Song: The Wheels on the Bus (Raffi)
Flannel Board Song: Five Little Acorns
I needed something simple, tried to learn it at the last minute and then butchered it. Next time, I'll get it down.
Song: ABCD Medley
Goodbye Song: We Wave Goodbye Like This
