Body and Senses Storytime

I’m trying a different format for the website. We will see how much I like it. This was my first storytime for our summer reading program. I did it specifically for our Picnic Storytime.

Introduction Tickle the Sun

Tickle the Sun.
Tickle your toes.
Clap your hands
And tickle your nose.
Reach up high.
Reach down low.
Turn around,
And say hello!

Mr. Potato Head, What Do You Need?
by Shawn Wolf

Mr. Potato Head, how will you see?
I’ll give you some eyes so you can see me.

Mr. Potato Head, how will you smell?
I’ll give you a nose so you can smell well.

Mr. Potato Head, how will you taste?

I’ll give you a mouth so you can eat cake.

Mr. Potato Head, how will you hear?

I’ll give you some ears so you’ll know when I’m near.

Mr. Potato Head, how will you touch?

I’ll give you some hands so you can feel much.

Mr. Potato Head, your head looks so bare.

I’ll give you a hat with some crazy black hair.

Mr. Potato Head, how will you run?

I’ll give you some feet so you can have fun.
