“Colors” preschool storytime

preschool colors

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.

Rain on the Green Grass
Rain on the green grass.
(flutter hands down to the ground)
Rain on the tree. (arms up like branches)
Rain on the rooftop (fingers together over head to make peak of roof)
But NOT on me!(brush shoulders with fingers)

Felt Board – Little Mouse, Little Mouse, Are you in the Red House?

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: Teach both colors and numbers using this fun game: Make 2 dice, one with numbers on the sides and one with colors. (You can use square tissue boxes or other similar materials to make the dice.) Have your child roll each die to get a number and a color. Then, using paper and crayons, make that many dots of that color on a sheet of paper.
