Opening Song

Well Hello Everybody, Can You Touch Your Nose

Well hello everybody, can you touch your nose,
Touch your nose, touch your nose?
Well hello everybody, can you touch your nose,
touch your nose?

Well hello everybody can you touch your toes,
touch your toes, touch your toes?
Well hello everybody, can you touch your toes,
touch your toes?

Well hello everybody, can you rub your tummy,
rub your tummy, rub your tummy?
Well hello everybody, can you rub your tummy,
rub your tummy?

Clap, Clap, Clap Your hands

Clap, clap, clap your hands
Clap them now with me
Clap your hands, let me see
Clap your hands with me

Beep, beep, beep your nose
Touch, touch, touch your shoulders
Tap, tap, tap your knees
Shake, shake, shake your feet

Twinkle Twinkle Little Star

Twinkle, twinkle, little star,
How I wonder what you are!
Up above the world so high,
Like a diamond in the sky.

Rainbow Kittens

Six little kittens found a box of paint.
They jumped right in…their mother will faint!
The first little kitten came out all red.
“I’ll be orange,” the second kitten said.
The third little kitten turned bright yellow.
“I’ll be green,” said the next little fellow.
The fifth kitten said, “My favorite is blue.”
“Purple for me,” said the sixth with a mew.
Dancing home the kittens go
To show their mother a KITTEN RAINBOW!

Action Rhymes

Colored Shoes

Stomping in my red shoes, red shoes, red shoes,
Stomping in my red shoes, here at storytime.
Running in my blue shoes, blues shoes, blue shoes,
Running in my blue shoes, here at storytime.
Sliding in my green shoes, green shoes, green shoes,
Sliding in my green shoes, here at storytime.
Twirling in my pink shoes,  pink shoes, pink shoes,
Twirling in my pink shoes, here at storytime.
Sitting in my white shoes, white shoes, white shoes,
Sitting in my white shoes, here at stortyime.

This Is the Way
This is the way we stir the paint, stir the paint, stir the paint
This is the way we stir the paint so early in the morning
(dip our brush, paint the paper, blow it dry, frame the picture)

I laminated paper paint brushes and had the kids do this song with them. We then did the activity below with the paint brushes.

Painting

o Paint long straight lines on their legs
o Circles on their knees.
o Paint different parts of their bodies
o Ask them to paint zigzags
o Rainbows
o Straight lines on the floor in front of them
o Paint letters of the alphabet on the floor in front of them
