Construction Story Time (2019)

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 tap and sing hello (tap knees) //
We stretch and sing hello (stretch arms up) //
We wave and sing hello (wave)

Song: Bend and Stretch
Bend and stretch,
Reach for the stars,
There goes Jupiter,
There goes Mars!

Bend and stretch, 
Reach for the sky,
Stand on tip-e-toes,
Oh so high!

Action Rhyme: Story Time Stretch
Two little hands go clap, clap, clap,
Two little feet go tap, tap, tap,
Two little fists go thump, thump, thump,
Two little legs go jump, jump, jump,
One little body turns around,
And everyone sits quietly down. Shhhhh …

I got this rhyme from the children’s librarian where I did my practicum for grad school. 

Book: Digger Dog by William Bee; illustrated by Cecilia Johansson

The foldouts in this book make it so much fun!

Song: The Construction Worker Song (to the tune of Mulberry Bush)
This is the way we pound the nails, 
Pound the nails, pound the nails,
This is the way we pound the nails,
So early in the morning.

Saw the wood // Stack the bricks // Paint the walls

Short, rhyming book about a family making their way to grandma’s house through many, many construction zones.

Song: Roly Poly
Roly poly, roly poly,

Up and down, up and down,
Roly, roly, poly, roly, roly, poly,
Up and down, up and down.

In and out // Fast and slow // Loud and soft
Adapted from King County Library System

Closing Song: Goodbye Song (to the tune of The Farmer in the Dell)
My fingers wave goodbye,
My fingers wave goodbye,
When it’s time for me to go, 
My fingers wave goodbye!

My fingers blow a kiss,
My fingers blow a kiss,
When it’s time for me to go,
My fingers blow a kiss!

I got this song from the children’s librarian where I did my grad school practicum.
