“The Letter F” preschool storytime

preschool letter f

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 an “F” 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 – Fire Engine no. 9 by Mike Austin

Hurry, hurry! Drive the fire truck!
Hurry, hurry! Drive the fire truck!
Hurry, hurry! Drive the fire truck!
Hurry, hurry! Drive the fire truck!
Ding, ding, ding, ding, ding!
Hurry, hurry! Climb the ladder…
Hurry, hurry! Squirt the water…
Slowly, slowly, go to sleep…

A Fly is on my Toe
A fly is on my toe,
A fly is on my toe,
Hi-ho, just watch me blow
A fly is on my toe
Repeat with other body parts, such as nose, elbow, knee, belly, etc.

Five little froggies go-HOP HOP HOP HOP DROP! (fall to floor) STOP!

Face Fingers Feet and Toes
Face fingers feet and toes, feet and toes
Face fingers feet and toes, feet and toes
Ankles, knees, elbows and nose
(knock elbows together  gently)
Face fingers feet and toes, feet and toes.

Fingers
All my fingers go to sleep,
Go to sleep, go to sleep
All my fingers go to sleep
Now wake up!

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)
