Here are the rhymes and songs from today:

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.

Found a Feather [tune: "Oh, My Darling Clementine" ]

Found a feather, found a feather,
Found a feather on the ground.
Oh, I am so very lucky, a feather to have found.

Picked it up, picked it up,
Picked it up just like that.
Picked up that pretty feather,
then I put it in my hat.

Found a feather, found a feather,
found a feather on the ground.
Oh, I am so very lucky,
a feather to have found.

Little Bird [tune: "Five Little Ducks" ]

One little bird with feathers of blue;
flew beside the green one and then there were two.
Two little birds signing in the tree;
The red bird came and then there were three.
Three little birds, wishing there were more;
Along came the purple bird and then there were four.
Four little birds, happy to be alive;
Found a little yellow one, and then there were five.
Five little birds as happy as can be.
Singing beautiful songs - just for you and me!

Birdie Pokey [Tune: "Hokey, Pokey" ]

You put your wings in, you put your wings out,
You put your wings in and you flap them about.
You do the birdie-pokey and you turn yourself around.
That's what it's all about!

Two Little Blackbirds

Two little blackbirds, sitting on a hill. [Wiggle both hands]
One named Jack. [Wiggle right hand]
One named Jill. [Wiggle left hand]
Fly away Jack. [Hide right hand]
Fly away Jill. [Hide left hand]
Come back Jack. [Bring right hand back]
Come back Jill. [Bring left hand back]
