Storytime - My Name Is...

Many thanks to storytime katie for giving me great ideas for this theme!

Books


Songs/Rhymes
Hi, My Name is Joe
Hi, my name is Joe.
I work in a button factory.
One day, my boss comes up to me and says,
“Hey Joe, are you busy?”
I said, “No.”
“Then turn the button with your right hand.”

Left hand, feet, head, whole body

B-I-N-G-O
There was a farmer who had a dog,
And Bingo was his name-o.
B-I-N-G-O, B-I-N-G-O, B-I-N-G-O
And Bingo was his name-o.
--Traditional
*I used an excellent felt version made by my co-worker, Miss Dorothy.

Parachute (Toddlers)
Come Under My Umbrella
Come under my umbrella,
Umbrella, umbrella.
Gently wave the parachute up and down.
Come under my umbrella,
It’s starting to storm.
Move parachute faster.
There’s thunder and lightning
And wind and rain.
Come under my umbrella,
It’s starting to storm.

Ring Around the Rosie
Lead the group around in a circle.
Ring around the rosy
A pocketful of posies
"Ashes, Ashes"
We all fall down!
Everyone falls down.
--Traditional
