Storytime - Hello!

Hello, Hello by Miriam Schlein
  • Toddler
Hello? Is That Grandma? by Ian Whybrow
  • Preschool
  • This is a great book, but didn't work for my group.
There is a greeting I like to say,
And Hello is its name-o!
H-E-L-L-O x3
And Hello is its name-o!
--Miss Mollie
*I made this song up right before storytime. I used magnetic letters on the board to sing it, but if I ever use it again I'll make a felt set.

Who’s That Knocking? Felt board
--Children’s Programming Monthly v. 1 no. 12 pg. 27 by Judy Nichols
*I hid an animal behind the door and said the rhyme. The toddlers guessed which animal was hiding.

Parachute (Toddlers Only)
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.

Row Boat, Row Boat
Row boat, row boat go so fast (shake the chute fast).
Row boat, row boat go so slow (wave the chute slowly).
Row boat, row boat the waves are getting worse (shake fast again).
Row boat, row boat put it in reverse (stop the chute by pulling towards you).
--Kendra at Delectable Dabbling

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.
