Big Kids Storytime- Wild Animals

Hello Friends

Hello friends, hello friends

Hello friends- it’s time to say hello!

Letter of the Week: E

The letter of the week is e e e, e e e, e e e

The letter of the week is e e e and it makes the sound ehhh

Words we thought of: Easter, egg, elephant, empty (and a whole bunch of made up phrases that started with egg like “egg robot”)

That’s Not a Hippopotamus! by Juliette MacIver

*This was a huge hit. This Big Kids group is super observant and noticed the hiding hippo right away!

Hippopotamus on a City Bus

(from Jbrary)

A hip, a hip, a hippopotamus

Got on, got on, got on a city bus

And all, and all, and all the people said

You’re squishing us!

A cow, a cow, a cow got on the bus

And all, and all, and all the people said

Mooooove over!

A sheep, a sheep, a sheep got on the bus

And all, and all, and all the people said move baaaaack!

Seals on the Bus

The seals on the bus go arp arp arp, arp arp arp, arp arp arp

The seals on the bus go arp arp arp, all day long

The snakes on the bus go hiss hiss hiss, hiss hiss hiss, hiss hiss hiss

The snakes on the bus go hiss hiss hiss, all day long

The lion on the bus goes roar roar roar, roar roar roar, roar roar roar

The lion on the bus goes roar roar roar, all day long

*we were going to end here but we ended up adding the wolves on the bus and the foxes on the bus…this was a common theme throughout storytime

I Dream of an Elephant by Ami Rubinger

Frogs, Frogs, Where are You Going?

Frogs, frogs where are you going?

We’re going to town, to town

If they catch you what will they do?

They’ll turn us all into [insert animal]!

*It felt like we did this chant ten times- kids kept coming up with animals! We also still had rhyming on the brain from reading I Dream of an Elephant, so we also talked about turning into stew. We decided that wasn’t possible and turned back into people at the end.

My Little Rowboat

My little rowboat rowing round and round

Rowed past a little duck and it made this silly sound- quack quack!

(Repeat with as many other animals as you’d like. We added lions, foxes, and wolves.)
