“Foxes” toddler storytime

*Disclaimer: I refuse to read the What Does the Fox Say book, just on general personal principles 😉

Opening Rhyme
(to the tune of The Farmer in the Dell)
We’re all here today. We’re all here today.
Let’s clap our hands and sing together.
Hip, hip, hooray!
Source: (To be honest, my library was using this before I started so I’m not sure where the previous librarian found it, but it looks like a modified version of Jean Warren’s Preschool Express song here.)

Hello, Hands. Good-bye, Hands.
Hello, hands. (Wave hands in front of face.)
Good-bye, hands. (Hide hands behind back.)
Hello, hands. Good-bye, hands.
My hands were feeling shy today. (Keep hands hidden.)
But now they’re feeling better! (Bring hands out, wave frantically, and smile HUGE.)
Repeat with feet, face, etc.

Book – Foxes by Maryann MacDonald

Felt Board – A-hunting We Will Go
A hunting we will go, a hunting we will go!
We’ll catch a fox and put him in a box,
And then we’ll let him go.
mouse…put her in a house
frog…put him on a log
goat…put her in a boat
bear…put him in a chair
owl … put her in a towel

Here is Foxy
Here are foxy’s pointed ears.
(point to ears)
Here is foxy’s nose.    (point to nose)
Here is foxy’s bushy tail.
(point to “tail”)
Now up and off he goes!    (trot around)

Book – Orange Triangle Fox by Sarah Jones 

If You’re a Fox and You Know It…
If you’re a fox and you know it
Swish your tail.
If you’re a fox and you know it
Swish your tail.
If you’re a fox and you know, then you’ll really want to show it
If you’re a fox and you know it
Swish your tail
wiggle your nose…
show your claws…

Felt Board – Little Fox, are you in the Box?
5 felt boxes in 5 different colors – red, blue, green, black, purple
1 felt fox. Hide the fox behind one of the boxes.
“Little fox, little fox, are you in the red box?”

Bubbles – best bubble machine ever! (IMHO, of course)

 Rainbows in my Bubbles
Tune of She’ll be Coming Round the Mountain)
I’ve got rainbows in my bubbles, yes, I do
I’ve got rainbows in my bubbles, yes, I do
When I look up towards the sun,
They’ve got rainbows every one.
I’ve got rainbows in my bubbles, yes, I do.

Good-bye Song
(Tune of Ten Little Indians)
Wave with one hand, then with the other
Wave with one hand, then with the other
Wave with one hand, then with the other
Wave with both feet now
Repeat with other body parts

Play Time!

Early literacy tip: Books about cars, truck, planes and trains often have great sounds like “beep beep,” “zoom,” and “chugga chugga.” Words like these help your child learn the sounds of language and will help your child develop pre-reading skills. Whenever you can, play with sounds with your child.

Joke: What is a witch’s favorite subject in school? Spelling!
