“Superhero!” preschool storytime

preschool superhero

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 – Superhero ABC by Bob McLeod

Song – “Growing Bigger” Preschool of Rock

Up, Up and Away!
Put your hands way up high (arms up in air)
Like Superkid flying across the sky
Fly to the left, now fly to the right
Now show me your muscles
With all your might (make arm muscles)
Now Superkid’s putting his suit away
(bring arms down slowly)
So he can go flying another day

Here comes the villain, Stop that guy!
This superhero can save the day.
Off he flies – up, up, and away!
Count down until no superheroes left

Book – The Day I Lost my Superpowers by Michael Escoffier

If You’re a Hero and You Know It
If you’re a hero and you know it,
Climb tall buildings
If you’re a hero and you know it,
Climb tall buildings
If you’re a hero, and you know it
And you really want to show it
If you’re a hero and you know it,
Use X-ray vision
Stop a bullet
Lift a car

Sometimes I Am Tall
Sometimes I am tall. (stretch up on toes)
Sometimes I am small. (crouch down)
Sometimes I am very, very tall.
(stretch up and reach arms up)
Sometimes I am very, very small.
(crouch low to floor)
Sometimes tall…(stretch up)
Sometimes small…(crouch low)
See how I am now. (sit)

Felt Board: Find the stolen money!
I made up a “rhyme” for this one (not my best work):
Help! A robber has stolen money from the bank!
The money is now hidden behind one of these stars.
Let’s use our superhero powers to find it and save the day!
With our x-ray vision,
we’re on a mission.
Under which number star
has the money been hidden?

Did You Ever See a Superhero?
Did you ever see a hero, a hero, a hero,
Did you ever see a hero flying through the sky?
Fly this way and that way,
And that way and this way
Did you ever see a hero flying through the sky?
Verses: Putting on their cape, hopping on one foot, saving the day, twirling around

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: “Free play,” as scientists call it, is critical for becoming socially adept, coping,  and building cognitive skills such as problem solving. Research into animal behavior confirms play’s benefits and establishes its evolutionary importance: ultimately, play may provide animals (including humans) with skills that will help them survive.
