Drop-In Story Time, 9/18/12

I use the same hello and goodbye songs at almost every session. Click here for the tunes and words. For descriptions of each of my story times, click here

Donald Crews is one of the few authors or illustrators who holds the attention of the nannies at my story times. I decided to read three of his books in one session, and it worked out very well.

Book: Sail Away by Donald Crews (1995)To make this book interactive, I asked grown ups to say the "putt putt putt" sounds with me.

Song: Row, Row, Row Your Boat

Book: Freight Train by Donald Crews (1978)
When we got the page that says, "Freight train," I asked everyone to make their best train sound. 

Fingerplay: Here is the Engine 

Book: Flying by Donald Crews (1986)
For this book, every time the plane flew over something, we all said, "Whoosh!"

Action Rhyme: The Airplane

Letter of the Day: Letter F
  • Song (with puppet): I’m a Little Green Frog 
  • Song: Hurry, Hurry Drive the Firetruck 
  • Song: (with ukulele and flannel board): Old MacDonald Had a Farm 
  • Song (with flannel board): Ten Little Friends (just like Ten Little Indians, but it ends "ten little friends boys and girls.")
    Note: For this last song, I used the faces shown in my Flannel Friday post for The Doorbell Rang.
Song: ABCs/Twinkle Twinkle / Baa Baa Black Sheep

Rhyme: This is Big, Big, Big

Song: Bumpin’ Up and Down in My Little Red Wagon

Song: Gray Squirrel

Song: Sing a Happy Song 

Song: Chickadee
