“The Letter H” preschool storytime

letter h

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 “H” 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 – I Want my Hat Back by Jon Klassen

Tall Hat, Small Hat
Tall hat, (arms overhead)
Small hat (hands on head)
Big hat (arms outspread)
Cap (hands on head)
Let me take them off again
(repeat motions in reverse)
And put them in my lap.
(fold hands in lap)

Here is a Beehive
Here is the beehive (hand in fist)
But where are the bees?
Hidden away where nobody sees.
Soon they’ll come creeping out of the hive.
Take one finger out at a time, while counting
One! Two! Three! Four! Five!
BZZZZZZ!!!!! (tickle the kids)
Back in the hive bees! (hand in fist)

Book – Hungry Hen by Richard Waring

Song – Laurie Berkner’s “I Know a Chicken 

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: One way to practice blending is to play a guessing game called Secret Code. The parent could turn an illustrated word face down and say its body and coda, e.g., ha-t. When a child blends the phonemes and guesses the word, the parent shows the picture.
