“The Letter I” preschool storytime

letter i

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 “I” 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 – If by Sarah Perry 

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

Song – Jim Gill’s “Poison Ivy

There’s Something Soft and Fluffy
There’s something soft and fluffy
And icy and cold
It’s very nice to look at
But much too cold to hold
Whether you are on an outing
Or spending time at home
You cannot eat this with your hands
So we put it on a cone!

Felt Board – Ice Cream
Five ice cream cones at the ice cream shop
But no one wanted to buy them with vanilla on top
One little icecream took some time to think
He mixed in some bubblegum and turned himself pink
A kid came along and took that yummy ice cream home

Four ice-cream cones at the ice cream shop
But no one wanted to buy them with vanilla on top
Then one little ice-cream knew what he should do
He mixed in some blueberries and turned the color blue
A kid came along and took that yummy ice-cream home.

3 little ice creams at the ice cream shop
But no one wanted to buy them with vanilla on top
One little ice cream was a smart little fellow
He mixed in some lemonade and turned himself yellow.
A kid came along and took that yummy ice cream home.

2 Little Ice Cream cones at the ice-cream shop
But no one wanted to buy them with vanilla on top.
One little ice-cream got an idea in his head
He mixed in some raspberries and turned his color to red.
A kid came along and took that yummy ice-cream home.

One little ice-cream at the ice-cream shop
But no one wanted to buy it with vanilla on top
Alone and sad, he really wanted to go,
So he mixed in all the colors and made himself rainbow!

Song – Boogers – “Itsy Bitsy Spider

The Itsy Bitsy Monkey
The itsy bitsy monkey
Climbed up the coconut tree.
Down came a coconut
And hit him on his knee—OWWW!!!!
Out came a lion
A-shakin’ his mighty mane—
Annnnd—
The itsy bitsy monkey
Climbed up the tree again!

Book – Inside Mouse Outside Mouse by Lindsay Barrett George 

If You Want to be a Mouse
If you want to be a mouse
Eat some Cheese
If you want to be a mouse
Eat some cheese.
If you want to be a mouse,
If you want to be a mouse,
If you want to be a mouse,
Eat some cheese

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: Encourage your child to try to “write” on his/her own. Let her use crayons and markers while she is writing a note or making a shopping list. Let him draw with finger paints in the bathtub before having a bath. Scribble with big pieces of chalk on the sidewalk outside your house. Let her “type” on Mom’s computer. Talk about what she is doing. Ask questions that help keep kids involved in all pre-writing activities.
