“Letter S” preschool storytime

letter s

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 “S” 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 – Go! Go! Go Stop! by Cherise Mericle Harper

Song – Kira Willey – “Stop and Go

Sleeping Bunnies
See the little bunnies sleeping
‘Til it’s nearly noon?
Shall we wake them with a merry tune?
Oh, so still. Are they ill?
Wake up little bunnies!
Hop little bunnies, hop, hop, hop
Hop little bunnies, hop, hop, hop
Hop little bunnies, hop, hop, hop

Slowly, Slowly
Slowly, slowly very slowly
Creeps the garden snail.
Slowly, slowly, very slowly
Up the wooden rail.
Quickly, quickly, very quickly
Runs the little mouse.
Quickly, quickly, very quickly
Round about the house

Book – Can You Make a Scary Face? by Jan Thomas

Spider on the Floor
There’s a spider on the floor, on the floor,
There’s a spider on the floor, on the floor.
Who could ask for any more
Than a spider on the floor,
There’s a spider on the floor, on the floor!
Oh, no! It’s on my toe!…
I think I better go I have a spider on my toe,
Oh, no! It’s on my knee!
There’s a spider on my knee…I think I better flee
There’s a spider on my thigh…I think I’m going to cry
There’s a spider on my neck…I feel like such a wreck
There’s a spider on my head…I’m filled with such dread
BUT, it jumped off!
There’s a spider on the floor…

Book – The Seals on the Bus by Lenny Hort

Sometimes I am Tall
Sometimes I am Tall
Sometimes I am small
Sometimes I am very, very tall
Sometimes I am very, very small
Sometimes tall, sometimes small
See how I am now

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)
