Beach Story Time

Welcome Song: Clap and Sing Hello (to the tune of The Farmer in the Dell)
We clap and sing hello,
We clap and sing hello,
With our friends at story time,
We clap and sing hello!
We wave and sing hello // We stomp and sing hello

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 so high!

Song: The Sea (to the tune of The Wheels on the Bus)
The waves on the sea go up and down,
Up and down, up and down.
The waves on the sea go up and down,
All day long.

Sharks in the sea go snap, snap, snap //
Fish in the sea go swish, swish, swish //
Crabs on the beach go click, click, click //
The boats on the sea go toot, toot, toot

Closing Song: It’s Time to Say Goodbye to All Our Friends (to the tune of She’ll Be Comin’ Round the Mountain When She Comes)
It’s time to say goodbye to all our friends, “Goodbye!”
It’s time to say goodbye to all our friends, “Goodbye!”
It’s time to say goodbye,
Wave your hands and wink your eye,
Now it’s time to say goodbye to all our friends, “Goodbye!”
