Songs, Poems, and Fingerplays to Share:

The Little Turtle
There was a little turtle,
He lived in a box
He swam in a puddle,
He climbed on the rocks.

He snapped at a mosquito,
He snapped at a flea,
He snapped at a minnow,
And he snapped at me.

He caught the mosquito,
He caught the flea,
He caught the minnow,
But he didn’t catch ME!

Houses
Here is a nest for robin (cup both hands)
Here is a hive for bee (fists together)
Here is a hole for bunny (make a circle)
And here is a house for ME! (make a roof)

Eat Apples Tickle Rhyme
Ring the bell (Lift a lock of hair)
Knock at the Door (Tap on forehead)
Peek in (Point to eyes)
Lift the latch (lift nose)
Walk in (walk fingers toward mouth)
Go way down to the cellar (Walk fingers down to tummy)
And eat apples! (Tickle tummy!)

To Market To Market Knee Bounce
To market, to market to buy a fat pig
Home again, home again jiggety jig
To market, to market to buy a fat hog
Home again, home again jiggety jog
To market, to market to buy a plum bun
Home again, home again market is done (give a hug)

Beehive Fingerplay
Here is a beehive (make a fist)
But where are the bees? (shrug shoulders)
Hiding inside where nobody sees (point to fist) Soon they’ll come out of their hive
1, 2, 3, 4, 5 (open fingers one at a time)

Go in and Out the Window
Go in and out the window,
Go in and out the window,
Go in and out the window,
As we have done before.

Go up and down the staircase,
Go up and down the staircase,
Go up and down the staircase,
As we have done before.

Go round and round the village,
Go round and round the village,
Go round and round the village,
As we have done before.

We hope to see you at storytime!
