“Mother’s Day” preschool storytime

preschool mother's 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 Bad Bunny by Franny Billingsley

Sleeping Bunnies
See the little bunnies sleeping
‘Til it’s nearly noon?
Shall we wake them with a merry tune?
Oh, so still. Are they ill?
Wake up little bunnies!
Hop little bunnies, hop, hop, hop
Hop little bunnies, hop, hop, hop
Hop little bunnies, hop, hop, hop
Hop little bunnies ‘til I say stop

5 Little Monkeys
Five little monkeys jumping on the bed
One fell off and bumped her head
Mama called the doctor, and the doctor said,
“No more monkeys jumping on the bed!”

Song – Jim Gill’s “Silly Dance Contest

A Kiss
There’s something in my pocket.
Could it be a moose?
Could it be a train with a bell and a caboose?
Could it be a snake or some sticky glue?
Right here in my pocket is a KISS from me to you!
Blow kiss.

Book – My Mom by Anthony Browne

Mother Gooney Bird
Mother gooney bird and seven chicks,
Seven chicks and mother gooney bird.
They couldn’t walk, and they couldn’t talk.
But they all could go like this!
Repeat the song a total of five times.
For the first verse, stomp one foot to the beat.
For the third verse, stomp both feet to the beat.
For the fourth verse, stomp both feet and wave both elbows to the beat.
For the fifth verse, stomp both feet, wave both elbows, and bob your head to the beat.

If You Love Mom and You Know It
If you love mom and you know it,
clap your hands.
If you love mom and you know it,
clap your hands.
If you love mom and you know it,
then your face will surely show it.
If you love mom and you know it,
clap your hands.
Blow a kiss
Give a hug
Say, “I love you”

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)
