Well Hello Everybody, Can You Touch Your Nose

Well hello everybody, can you touch your nose,

Baby Penguins

1 baby penguin makes a wish
(hold up 1 finger and point up)

2 baby penguins catch a fish
(hold up 2 fingers and clap hands)

3 baby penguins slip and slide
(hold up 3 fingers and slide hands around)

4 baby penguins run and hide
(hold up 4 fingers, then hide them)

5 baby penguins look around, calling “Mamma! Mamma! Mamma!”
(hold up 5 fingers and shade eyes with hand)

Now they are found.
(add mama penguin to the board)
Rhyme: Miss Mary Liberry

Themed Rhymes

Penguin Song

I’m a little penguin
Aren’t I cute?  (raise arms as if questioning)

I’m a bird
In a penguin suit  (flap arms at sides)

My suit has thick feathers,
Black and white      (turn around, show off outfit)

I can’t fly
But I swim all right  (swimming motions)

I can waddle ’round
On my webbed feet  (waddle)

Fresh fish are what
I like to eat!             (eating motions)

Penguin Waddle

You put your right wing in,
you take your right wing out,
You put your right wing in and you waddle all about.
You do the Penguin Waddle and you turn yourself around.
And that’s what it’s all about!

You put your left wing in…
You put your right fin in…
You put your left fin in…
You put your beak in…
You put yourself in…

Closing Goodbye Song

The Goodbye Train is Leaving
Oh the goodbye train is leaving see you soon, toot, toot.
Oh the goodbye train is leaving see you soon, toot, toot.
Oh the goodbye train is leaving, the goodbye train is leaving
Oh the goodbye train is leaving see you soon, toot, toot

Observations

A pretty fun storytime. For Waddle, Waddle I had the kids waddle in their seats and then throw out their arm and thrust out their chest for belly slide! I had a few kids hollering belly slide later.
