Kites & Wind Story Time

Unfortunately, the library was closed yesterday due to snow! But here’s what we would have done:

Welcome Song: Hands Go Up and Hands Go Down
(to the tune of Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star)
Hands go up and hands go down
I can turn around and round
I can hop upon two shoes
I can listen so can you
I can sit, I’ll show you how
Story time is starting now

Song: This Old Man
This old man,
He played one, (hold up one finger)
He played knick knack on my thumb.
With a knick knack (slap knees)
paddy wack (clap hands)
give a dog a bone, (hand jive)
This old man came rolling home. (roll hands)
Two … on my shoe // Three … on my knee // Four .. on the floor // Five … on the hive

Song: Noisy Wind (to the tune of The Farmer in the Dell)
I like the noisy wind (clap)
I like the noisy wind (clap)
It roars and mutters (loud then soft)
Shakes and shutters (drum on thighs)
I like the noisy wind

Flannel: Five Little Kites
One little kite in the sky so blue,
Along came another and now there are two.
Two little kites flying high above me,
Along came another and now there are three.
Three little kites, just watch them soar,
Along came another and now there are four.
Four little kites, so high and alive,
Along came another and now there are five.
Five little kites dancing across the sky,
What a sight to see, way up high!

Song: Baby Shark
Baby shark do do do do do do (shark mouth with two fingers)
Baby shark do do do do do do
Baby shark do do do do do do
Baby shark

Other verses:
Mama Shark (shark mouth with hands connected at the wrists)
Daddy Shark (shark mouth with whole arms)
Grandma Shark (shark mouth like mama shark but with fists)
Shark attack (snap arms overhead)
Swim away (swimming motion with arms)
Safe at last (jazz hands)

Song: The Wind is Blowing (to the tune of Mary Had a Little Lamb)
The wind is blowing all around,
All around, all around.
The wind is blowing all around,
All around the town.

Action Rhyme: Let’s Fly a Kite
I took my kite to the park,
And flew it in the air.
I flew it high,
I flew it low,
I flew it everywhere.
I flew it in a great big circle,
I flew it in a square,
I flew it in a squiggly line,
And tossed it into the air.

Song: Mr. Sun
Oh Mr. Sun. Sun. Mr. golden sun, (arms over head)
Please shine down on me. (move hands back and forth and down)
Oh Mr. Sun. Sun. Mr. golden sun, (arms over head)
Hiding behind a tree. (hide face behind hands)
These little children are asking you. (point to the children)
To please come out so they can play with you. (gesture ‘come here’ with hands)
Oh Mr. Sun. Sun. Mr. golden sun. (arms over head)
Please shine down on me. (move hands back and forth and down)

Goodbye Song: We Wave Goodbye Like This (to the tune of The Farmer in the Dell)
We wave goodbye like this.
We wave goodbye like this.
We clap our hands for all our friends.
We wave goodbye like this.
