Fabulous 3s: Awesome Animals

This winter session, I was lucky enough to do a handful of three year old storytimes (Fabulous Threes to us). The first one of these had an “Awesome Animals” theme.
Opening Song: Clap Your Hands (Wiggleworms Love You)


Felt Board Game: Little Mouse
Little mouse, little mouse
Are you in the [red] house?
repeat until the mouse is found

Book: Monkey and Me by Emily Gravett


Song: Grr Grr Went the Big Brown Bear
Grr grr went the big brown bear one day
Grr grr went the big brown bear
Grr grr went the big brown bear one day
And the bear went grr grr grr
But- we know bears go huggy huggy hug
Huggy huggy hug, huggy huggy hug
We know bears go huggy huggy hug
They don’t go grr grr grr
Bloop bloop went the little blue fish one day
Bloop bloop went the little blue fish
Bloop bloop went the little blue fish one day
And the fish went bloop bloop bloop
But- we know fish go kissy kissy kiss
Kissy kissy kiss, kissy kissy kiss
We know fish go kissy kissy kiss
They don’t go bloop bloop bloop

Book + Felt Board: Polar Bear’s Underwear by Tupera Tupera


Song + Finger Puppets: Five Little Monkeys
Five little monkeys swinging in a tree
Teasing Mr. Crocodile- can’t catch me!
Along comes Mr. Crocodile, quiet as can be
And SNAPS! that monkey right out of that tree
repeat until there are no monkeys left
[side note: I made a little set of finger puppets to go along with this song and they were such a big hit, I’ve made 3 others and am constantly looking for new versions of the song so I can make more!]

Book: Chu’s Day by Neil Gaiman


Song: These are My Glasses (Whaddya Think of That?, Laurie Berkner)

Goodbye Song
Storytime is over now, over now, over now
Storytime is over now- see you next time!
I also made a little handout with some suggested titles, which included:
Extraordinary Jane by Hannah E. Harrison
Lost for Words by Natalie Russell
The Bear Ate Your Sandwich by Julia Sarcone-Roach
