1. HAVE FUN WITH BOOKS
Here are the books we read at storytime:
Welcome To Storytime! [tune: “Twinkle, Twinkle” ]
Welcome, welcome everyone,
Now we're here, let's have some fun.
First we'll sing the ABC's,
then we'll read and sing with me.
Welcome, welcome, everyone,
Now we're here let's have some fun.
The Bear Game By Angel A. Nettles
Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear, where have you been?
I’ve been to play with another bear friend.
Where did you go to and what did you do?
We played a bear game two by two.
Take one step forward, take two steps back,
Turn all around, jump front, jump back.
This little bear game, is not hard to do,
Just grab a partner and you can do it too!
Two Little Bear Cubs [Tune: Five Little Ducks]
Two little bears went out to play, Over the hill and far away.
They rolled and tumbled in the grass so sweet,
They sniffed all around for some honey to eat.
Then two little bears heard their Mama call.
So they ran back home, and that is all.
Hibernation Song [tune: “Are You Sleeping”]
Bear is sleeping, Bear is sleeping. In a cave, in a cave.
I wonder when he’ll come out. I wonder when he’ll come out.
In the spring, In the spring.
Are You Sleepy [tune: Frere Jacques]
Are you sleepy, are you sleepy, Big brown bear, big brown bear?
Wintertime is coming, Wintertime is coming, Very soon, very soon.
Find a snug cave, find a snug cave, Big brown bear, big brown bear.
Wintertime is here now, wintertime is here now,
Go to sleep, go to sleep. Time to wake up, time to wake up, Big brown bear, big brown bear.
Springtime is upon us, Springtime is upon us, Wake up now, Wake up now.
Five Little Bears
Five little bears were dancing on the floor, one fell down and that left four.
Four little bears climbed up a tree, One found a beehive and that left three.
Three little bears were wondering what to do, One chased a bunny rabbit and that left two.
Two little bears were looking for some fun, One took a swim that left one.
One little bear sitting all alone, He looked all around and then ran home.
Bears [Tune: Mary Had a Little Lamb]
Grizzly bears are big and brown, big and brown, big and brown,
Grizzly bears are big and brown, and live out in the woods.
Polar bears are soft and white, soft and white, soft and white,
Polar bears are soft and white, and live where it is cold.
Teddy bears are just my size, just my size, just my size,
Teddy bears are just my size, to cuddle with at night.
Bear Went Over the Mountain
The bear went over the mountain The bear went over the mountain,
The bear went over the mountain, To see what she could see!
The other side of the mountain, The other side of the mountain,
The other side of the mountain, was all that she could see.
The More We Read Together [Tune: “The More We Get Together” ]
The more we read together, together, together,
The more we read together, the better it is!
'Cause reading and singing and talking together,
Is how you learn the six skills for reading by six.
