  • Evening Outdoor Storytime – Buzz, Buzz, Bug!

    Have fun replicating this story time at home using this story time outline!

    Warm Up Song: “Mr. Sun” by Raffi

    Hello Song (using ASL):  Hello Friends

    Hello friends,
    Hello friends,
    Hello friends,
    It’s time to say hello.

    Yoga Pose of the Week: Butterfly

    Breath Play: Buzz Breath

    As you sit in butterfly pose, imagine you’re buzzing around. Take a deep breath in. When you exhale, make a buzzing sound. Can you feel that letter Z sound tickle your tongue?

    Book: Butterfly, Butterfly by Petr HoracekĀ 

    Nursery Rhyme: Little Miss Muffet

    Little Miss Muffet (rock side to side)
    Sat on a tuffet
    Eating her curds and whey
    Along came a spider (creep and crawl your fingers like a spider)
    Who sat down beside her
    And frightened Miss Muffet away (shout boo)

    Mystery Box:

    Today we had scarves in our mystery box.

    Scarf Rhyme: Put Your Scarf in the Air

    Tune: Happy and you Know It
    Put your scarf in the air, in the air
    Put your scarf in the air, in the air
    Put your scarf in the air, now set it on your hair
    Put your scarf in the air, in the air

    Other Verses:
    Put your scarf on your knees… be sure not to sneeze
    Put your scarf on your tummy… now think of something yummy
    Put your scarf on the floor… now pick it up once more

    Scarf Song: “Flitter Flutter” by Johnette Downing

    Movement Rhyme: Itsy Bitsy Spider

    Itsy bitsy spider went up the water spout
    Down came the rain
    And washed the spider out
    Out came the sun and dried up all the rain
    And the itsy bitsy spider went up the spout again

    Other verses:
    The teeny tiny spider went up the water spout
    The big humongous spider went up the water spout

    Book: The Fly by Petr HoracekĀ 

    Movement Song: A Fly is on My Toe

    Tune: The Farmer and the Dell
    A fly is on my toe, a fly is on my toe
    High ho just watch it go
    A fly is on my toe (blow or shoo it off)

    A fly is on my knee, a fly is on my knee
    High ho, just watch it go
    A fly is on my knee (blow or shoo it off)

    Repeat by replacing toe and knee with other locations.

    Circle Time:

    We end our story time with some sort of group activity or dance. Today we danced with shakers to the song below!

    Song: “Ants in your Pants” by Johnette Downing

    Goodbye song: Goodbye friends

    Goodbye friends,
    Goodbye friends,
    Goodbye friends,
    It’s time to say goodbye.
