Family Story Time, 7/26/19 (Construction Theme)

This story time was a small one - just my kids and one other family. We read about construction.

Opening Song: Story Time is Starting

Book: The Diggers by Margaret Wise Brown, illustrated by Antoine Corbineau

Song: The Diggers at the Site
Using the tune of The Wheels on the Bus and the structure of the book Dig Dig Digging by Margaret Mayo, I came up with an action song. 

The diggers at the site go dig, dig, dig
dig, dig, dig,
dig, dig, dig
The diggers at the site go dig, dig, dig.
They can work all day. 

The cranes at the site go lift, lift, lift...
The dump trucks at the site go tip, tip, tip...
The dozers at the site go push, push, push...
The mixers at the site go round and round...

Book: Little Excavator by Anna Dewdney

Rhyme: This is Big Big Big

Song with Ukulele: Stop and Go (originally by Ella Jenkins)

Book: Builders and Breakers by Steve Light

Flannel Board Rhyme: Goodnight, Builders
 I used a small flannel board that I could hold in my lap, which (mostly) kept my toddler from grabbing the pieces.

Five little builders working at a site
The moon comes up as the day turns into night
One little worker lets out a big yawn.
And he/she goes home to sleep until dawn.

Song: Construction Worker Song

Book: Stanley the Builder by William Bee

Closing Song: Story Time is Over
