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.

The Colors I See

Red, red is the color I see.
If you are wearing red then show it to me.
Stand up, turn around. Show me your red then sit back down.

Yellow, yellow is the color I see.
If you are wearing yellow then show it to me.
Stand up, turn around. Show me your yellow then sit back down.

The Color Song [Tune: This Old Man]

Red, red, red, touch your head.
Blue, blue, blue, tie your shoe.
Brown, brown, brown, bend and touch the ground.
White, white, white, take a bite.
Black, black, black, touch your back.
Purple, purple, purple, turn a round in a circle.
Pink pink, pink, give a little wink.
Gray, gray, gray, now shout hurray!

Color Hokey-Pokey [Tune: Hokey-Pokey]

You put blue in, you take blue out.
You put blue in, and you shake it all about.
You do the hokey-pokey and you turn yourself around.
That's what it's all about!

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.
