Color Story Time

Welcome Song: Hi, Hello and How Are You (to the tune of London Bridges)
Hi, hello and how are you?
How are you? How are you?
Hi, hello and how are you?
How are you today?

Song: Open Shut Them
Open shut them, open shut them
Give a little clap, clap, clap.
Open shut them, open shut them
Put them in your lap, lap, lap.
Creep them, crawl them
Creep them, crawl them
Right up to your chin, chin, chin.
Open up your mouth …
But do not let them in!

Book: Dog’s Colorful Day by Emma Dodd

Song: At the Easel
At the easel, at the easel,
I can choose any color I want.
At the easel, at the easel,
I can choose any color I want.
Blue!
I paint the house blue, I paint the dog blue,
I paint the sky blue, I paint the grass blue.
Today I just like blue!
(Red // Green // Yellow)

Song: Row Row Row Your Boat
I do three verses of this classic:
Row row row your boat (the traditional way) //
Rock rock rock your boat, sway from side to side
Merrily merrily merrily merrily what a bumpy ride (bump hands on lap) //
Row row row your boat, gently down the stream
If you see a crocodile (crocodile snap with arms)
Don’t forget to scream (*AH*)

Action Rhyme: Color Rhyme
If your clothes have any red,
Put your finger on your head.
If your clothes have any blue,
Put your finger on your shoe.
If you clothes have any green,
Wave your hand so that you’re seen.
If your clothes have any yellow,
Smile like a happy fellow.
If your clothes have any brown,
Turn your smile into a frown.
If your clothes have any black,
Put your hands behind your back.
If your clothes have any white,
Stamp your feet with all your might!

Song: Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes
Sung three times, getting faster each time.

Wiggle Rhyme: Watch Out for the Bugs (to the tune of Jingle Bells)
Clap your hands, stomp your feet
Wiggle all around
Throw your hands up in the air and now let’s touch the ground
Touch your head, touch your hips, give yourself a hug
Now sit down upon the floor
But watch out for the bugs!! (stamp out the bugs)

Do all three
