Today’s theme was all about birds.
OPENING SONG: IF YOU’RE READY FOR A STORY
My voice was really rough today, so we actually skipped over the opening song and went straight to the first story.
SONG: I KNOW A CHICKEN by LAURIE BERKNER BAND
I really wanted to do the Owl in the Tree song, but my voice was just not up to it today! So instead I put in a CD and let Laurie handle the singing this time.
BOOK: EARLY BIRD
FELT BOARD: TWO LITTLE BLACKBIRDS
Two little blackbirds sitting on a hill
One named Jack and one named Jill
Fly away Jack, fly away Jill
Come back Jack, come back Jill
Two little blackbirds sitting on a car
One named near and one named far
Fly away near, fly away far
Come back near, come back far
Two little blackbirds sitting on a stick
One named slow and one named quick
Fly away slow, fly away quick
Come back slow, come back quick
Two little blackbirds sitting on a cup
One named down and one named up
Fly away down, fly away up
Come back down, come back up
Two little blackbirds sitting on a cloud
One named quiet and one named loud
Fly away quiet, fly away loud
Come back quiet, come back loud
Two little blackbirds sitting on a lily
One named serious and one named silly
Fly away serious, fly away silly
Come back serious, come back silly
I have different felt pieces for all the places the birds can land and let the kids pick where they will go next.
WHAT I DIDN’T USE: HOORAY FOR BIRDS, OWL IN THE TREE
For our craft we did bird do-a-dots. And that’s what we did in storytime today! If you’d like to see what we did in past weeks, click on the “What We Did in Storytime” tag.
