“The Letter C” preschool storytime

preschool letter c

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.

Alphabet Monster (with puppet)
I’m the Alphabet Monster
And nothing tastes better
To the Alphabet Monster
Than eating a letter.
Today I will eat a “C” if I may
With the million more letters
I munch every day.
I’m hungry now. What shall I do?
I think I’ll eat a “y” an “o” and a “u” . . . . . . That means YOU!

Book – The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle

Fuzzy Wuzzy Caterpillar
(Tune of Itsy Bitsy Spider)
Fuzzy Wuzzy Caterpillar
Into a corner will creep
He’ll spin himself a blanket
And then fall fast asleep
Fuzzy, wuzzy caterpillar
Very soon will rise
To find he has grown beautiful wings
Now he’s a butterfly!

Song – They Might be Giants “Clap Your Hands

Clap, Clap, Clap Your Hands
Clap, clap, clap your hands,
Clap them high and low,
Clap them all around the room,
Whichever way you go.

Clap, clap, clap your hands,
Clap them left and right.
Clap them all around the room.
Clap them out of sight!

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: Read a book and then tell the story later when the book is not there. It’s also great to do a puppet show or stage a play and act out the stories. If you need more characters, favorite stuffed animals can become the actors.
