“Earth Day” Preschool storytime

Preschool earth day

Opening Song
I wiggle my fingers. I wiggle my toes.
I wiggle my ears. I wiggle my nose.
I wiggle my shoulders. I wiggle my chin.
I stretch my arms wide and pull them back in.
I wiggle my elbows. I wiggle my knees.
I hop like a bunny. I smile and say, “Cheese!”
Now I have no more wiggles left in me
And I sit on the floor as still as can be.

Book – Big Bear Hug by Nicholas Oldland

Song – “Clap Your Hands” by They Might Be Giants 

Once There was a Litter Bug
Tune:  “Itsy Bitsy Spider”
Once there was a litter bug
Who went from town to town,
Throwing out his garbage,
That landed on the ground.
The garbage grew so high
That when he turned around,
The litter bug got buried
And he was never found!

I threw paper all around the room during the Litter Bug song, and the kids picked it up to put it in the recycle bin during the next song.

PICKING UP LITTER   
Tune:  “Paw, Paw Patch”
Picking up litter and put it in the trash can.
Picking up litter and put it in the trash can.
Picking up litter and put it in the trash can.
Way down yonder, at the library.

Goodbye
Bread and butter, marmalade and jam
Let’s say good-bye as high as we can
Good-bye! (in high, squeaky voice)
Bread and butter, marmalade and jam
Let’s say good-bye as low as we can
Good-bye! (in a deep voice)
Bread and butter, marmalade and jam
Let’s say good-bye as fast as we can
Good-bye! (very quick)
Bread and butter, marmalade and jam
Let’s say good-bye as slow as we can
Good-bye! (very slowly and drawn out)
Bread and butter, marmalade and jam
Let’s say good-bye as quiet as we can
Good-bye! (in a whisper)
Bread and butter, marmalade and jam
Let’s say good-bye as loud as we can
GOOD-BYE! (yelling)

Early literacy tip: Go for a nature walk. Make animal noises. Plant seeds. Hug trees. (For real.) Learn sorting by placing recyclables in the correct bins.
